An incomparable food and wine experience!

Important Trail Events Update Related to Covid-19: Public events and large gatherings have been immensely effected in recent months and were not able to take place. A phased reopening has been in process in New York State. We will continue to keep the safety and health of our communities, those who work at the wineries and all those who visit top priority. Due to many uncertainities The Trail has made the decision to cancel the rest of the scheduled signature events in 2020.

Our passport and coupon book is still available and is a great option if you're looking to visit the wineries -- it also helps support the Keuka Lake Wine Trail during this difficult times. 

Each of our Signature Events is an incomparable food and wine experience and the perfect introduction to the Keuka Lake Wine Trail. Enjoy delicious wines, great food, attentive service, and gorgeous scenery as you tour lovely Keuka Lake (transportation not included).

Whether you enjoy sampling the latest wine releases, exploring food and wine pairings, learning more about grape cultivation and wine production, shopping for unique gifts, or expanding your garden with fresh plantings ... you'll find a great event on the Keuka Lake Wine Trail!
