From the first Cayuga Lake Wine Trail brochure: “The CWT offers a variety that is unmatched in wine touring and tasting…No where else will travelers experience such a multitude of premium wines, attractions, comfortable lodgings, fine restaurants, friendly people, and splendid scenery.”
The Cayuga Lake Wine Trail was the first organized and longest running wine trail in New York, established in 1983. Since then, the Trail has become a model for other wine trails both in New York and around the country. With 16 wineries, one cidery, one meadery, four distilleries, one brewery and countless other businesses involved, the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail has something for everyone!
Our philosophy is once you’ve seen, tasted, and lived all that the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail has to offer, you will absolutely fall in love with it! Our hearts and souls are poured into each and every bottle, and our wines, ciders, meads, and spirits are the embodiment of the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail’s investment into the very heart of New York State.
