The best time to visit Upstate NY is just around the corner, and if you’re interested in exploring our fantastic wineries, there’s no better way than on one of the locally offered Finger Lakes winery tours (some are even by boat!). You really can’t beat a day out wine tasting with your special someone or a group of friends and family. It doesn’t hurt that this part of Upstate NY is absolutely breathtaking. There’s something extraordinary about the views of the rolling vineyards with the vivid blue Finger Lakes as the backdrop. You won’t find these vistas just anywhere! 

The Finger Lakes wine region is home to more than 144 wineries and is centered around four main lakes—Canandaigua, Keuka, Seneca, and Cayuga. Seneca and Cayuga Lakes are also recognized as separate viticulture areas due to their unique growing conditions, lakefront climate, and soil makeup. These two lakes also each have wine trail associations and happen to be the closest option to our Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast. There’s no better way to discover these local gems than by heading out with one of the many companies offering Finger Lakes winery tours. 

As a guest at our Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast, you’ll be in the ideal location to explore the local wine scene. Whether self-guided or with a tour group, by car or boat, there’s no shortage of memorable Finger Lakes winery tours to add to your itinerary. After a few hours in the vineyards, Inn at Gothic Eves will be a welcome reprieve. Our comfortable shared spaces (indoors and out), sumptuous guest rooms, and impeccable hospitality stand out from the rest. You’ll love spending warm sunny summer days here, and we can’t wait to host you. Reserve your room at our Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast today!

The Best Finger Lakes Winery Tours for Summer

We’re tucked between the Cayuga and Seneca Lakes which gives you easy access to the lakeside wineries along the shores. Both bodies of water located in the Finger Lakes AVA have wine trails of their own and many local companies offer Finger Lakes winery tours for lovely day trips with transportation to each stop along the route.

Here are four Finger Lakes winery tours to consider adding to your itinerary: 

  1. Water to Wine Tours: Perhaps our favorite choice of the Finger Lakes winery tours to recommend, you really can’t beat stopping off at the local wineries via boat. You’ll sail along Cayuga Lake, pop into a few wineries, tour and taste, and then hop back aboard for your next destination. These tours are ideal for couples or small groups and will be an unforgettable part of your getaway in Upstate NY. For more details, here’s a note from our Innkeeper Rose. 
  2. Experience! The Finger Lakes Wine Tours: This local touring group offers an extensive list of options for exploring the area. They cover the Seneca, Keuka, and Cayuga Lakes wineries, offering seven-hour tours that include multiple stops and lunch. These are perfect for groups of seven or fewer, and it’s a great way to see the countryside in style. 
  3. Finger Lakes Winery Tours: Whether it’s wine, beer, or cheese that you’re after, this local touring group will take you to it! If it’s Finger Lakes winery tours for you, they offer options for Seneca, Keuka, and Cayuga Lake area stops. 
  4. Captain Jim’s Wine Cruise: This local tour group begins excursions on Mother’s Day this May for fun and relaxed wine cruises on Cayuga Lake. We suggest choosing Sheldrake Point Winery, a lovely spot on the water for tastings, snacks, and delicious sparkling varietals. 

For those who prefer exploring on their own, there are plenty of wonderful wineries within a quick drive of our Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast. A few of our favorites for tastings and frolicking in the vineyards are Six Mile Creek Vineyard, Americana Vineyards, Red Newt Cellars, and Fox Run Vineyards.
