Finger Lakes Wine Cruises offers small group and exclusive tours to Cayuga Lake’s best wineries.
This is the ultimate way to enjoy the wineries! No crowded cattle boats or buses, no traffic, just a leisurely cruise on the lake combined with tastings at some of the best wineries in the Finger Lakes. A variety of options are available for a truly special day on the lake and at the wineries; from behind the scenes tours, barrel tastings and owner led vineyard tours. You can even book your own concierge for the duration of your trip!
Listed below are the wineries that we can visit during your excursion:
Treleaven Winery is a small farm winery, located on the east side of Cayuga Lake, producing world-class Treleaven Wines. Here, delicate vinifera grapes are hand-tended and selectively picked to produce extremely complex and full-flavored wines. Choosing quality over quantity, the Saltonstall family knows by reducing yields in the vineyard, barrel fermentation, and aging in French, Hungarian, and American oak barrels, that only wines with proven depth of fruit character are produced.
Treleaven Winery is widely acknowledged as a leading maker of superior, smooth, full-bodied Chardonnays, which are crafted in the centuries-old Burgundian tradition. The winery also produces more than a dozen award-winning Treleaven Wines including a variety of exquisite Rieslings, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir, Meritage, Vignoles, an earthy aromatic Cabernet Franc, and a soft, easy drinking Merlot.
