The McGregor family invites you to enjoy a casual, seated tasting of estate wines produced from our half-century-old vineyards. Our winery is hidden on a hillside just one mile above the eastern shore of Keuka Lake.

Get off the trail and get up into the mountains. Great view of the lake. They had live music and only five dollars for a tasting of five wines with a small snack plate. Cute little gift shop and very nice server staff. The wine...More
What I loved about the wine tasting at McGregor is that you're seated, and they offer (tiny) free cheese, cracker with dip and dark chocolate with your tasting. If it's not crowded, you might be able to do your tasting with a great view of...More
This was our first stop of the day. We were greeted with a smile when we walked in, we loved how discriptive the tasting menu and server was. Our server was very knowledgable and took the time to decribe each wine we choose. She knew...More
McGregor Vineyard & Winery is a bit off the beaten path. Hidden high on a hillside overlooking the bluff of Keuka Lake, it's also one of the oldest wineries in the Finger Lakes. The tasting room experience is unlike any other winery in the region,...More

Our winery is now 35 years old, but our annual picnic by the pond is actually a tradition that began in the mid 1970s. We are happy to welcome back Gale Wyn Farms from Canandaigua to serve up their mouthwatering Pig Roast to cap off a day of wine and fun.
All current members of the McGregor Vineyard Clan Club are invited to attend and may also bring guests. Reservations are $30 per member and $40 per guest. Call (800) 272-0192 or reply to this message by August 7th to let us know you'll be joining the fun.
Lifetime Clan Club member Walt Atkison from North Carolina performs throughout the afternoon. Walt plays some of the finest guitar and harmonica you'll ever enjoy and we’re excited to have him back again. Additional picnic traditions include Blind Wine Tastings, a Live Auction of older wine vintages from our wine library, Silent Auctions, Raffles, Picnic-only wine specials on numerous wines and lots of merriment!
What Else Should I Know?
We make just one request to you: Prepare a hors d’ouvres to share with the crowd. Be creative (use some McGregor wine!) and please keep in mind that we won’t have the ability to heat or chill what you bring. Don't worry about dessert.. we've got it covered!
We do provide chairs under the tents but we strongly suggest you bring a comfortable lawn chair. The picnic is rain or shine… Regardless of the weather, the Clan Club Picnic is always one of the very most memorable days of summer.
