The winery & brewery at Wagner Vineyards are open daily year-round for beer and wine tastings, tours of the winery and retail sales. We also have a gift shop with an impressive collection of wine & beer accessories, clothing, logo items and a bountiful selection of unique gifts.
The Ginny Lee restaurant serves lunch daily from May through October. Please check the hours page on the Ginny Lee Cafe website, or phone 607-582-6574 for the off-season schedule.
We have some new policies and procedures in place to comply with the new guidelines in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. These changes are for everyone’s safety – including yours! Reservations are now required for all seated wine tastings and masks are required at all times on the premises unless you are seated at a table or participating in a tasting. Wine & Beer flights to be consumed at the picnic tables outdoors are first-come-first-serve and we are not accepting reservations at this time for those. Please make sure to check out our Taste & Tour page for more on what to expect for your visit.
If you are planning your first visit to Wagner Vineyards, we like to let you know that your experience may depend a great deal on the time of year you choose to stop by.
One word – gorgeous! Finger Lakes wine tasting tours are extremely popular in the fall. The season peaks Labor Day through Thanksgiving with weekend visitors touring the region for wine tastings, foliage viewing and observing harvest activities. Weekends during the Fall are an exciting time to visit. Weekdays generally are a little slower paced than weekends, but can still be quite busy on a beautiful autumn day. Bring a sweatshirt and relax with a glass of wine on our deck overlooking some of the most beautiful scenery in the Finger Lakes.
The parking lot is cleared and the heat is on, winter is a great time to visit! Enjoy the region’s captivating scenery, but at a less hectic pace. Take your time tasting, touring, shopping and visiting with the folks at Wagner Vineyards.
Also a wonderfully scenic time to visit; the views change daily as the vineyards and hillsides are erupting with fresh green growth after the winter dormancy. Weekends can be busy, but you are unlikely to have to wait for a wine tasting.
Note: The Seneca Lake Wine Trail plans most of its special events for weekends in the winter & spring, when the volume of tourists has declined. Check the event listing or the Wine Trail website for special event dates & info.
There is plenty of fun available in the Finger Lakes region during the summer months. All of the area parks, restaurants and seasonal attractions are open this time of year. We host lots of visitors, but rarely at the volume we see in the fall. Summer is a great time for a day trip to Wagner Vineyards – taste, tour, dine & shop all in one stop.
