There are soooooo many wineries in the Finger Lakes that it’s hard to choose which ones to visit. Of all the ones we visited on our trip, SP had the best wines. I’m not a rosè fan, but I enjoyed theirs. We left with several...More

I highly recommend visiting this vineyard. Beautiful view of Cayuga Lake from their outdoor terrace. I recommend the all-cheese assortment you may order at the wine-tasting counter. It included 5 varieties of local cheeses, all of which were good; one was a creamy goat cheese,...More

The location of this winery is beautiful. It sits on a scenic view. The tasting room is nice and the wines were good. Four tasting off the regular menu for five dollars with additional available. My favorite Cayuga winery.

Lovely setting and room. Wines were "award winning" - lots of ribbons on display. But, the service was not award winning - I did not feel welcome here.

Sheldrake Point Winery is located on a picturesque site along the shore of Cayuga Lake. The winery buildings and tasting room are very comfortable and there are comfortable places to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and conversation. Across the street is an easy...More

We stopped here on a rainy afternoon for a tasting and this turned out to be our favorite winery in the area. Gorgeous view and excellent wine. Fun experience.

After many visits to local wineries this is the only winery that made us feel unwelcomed. The attitude of the person conducting our tasting was beyond unpleasant, it was clear that we were a bother to her, maybe she didnt like our tattoos. Regardless she...More

Inappropriate. We were not slurring, not stubling, totally acceptable behavior. The hostess was on a power trip of some sort. Told us we could not be served. Totally ridiculous. The rudest service I’ve ever had. Will not return here, do not encourage other to return....More

First stop on our "winery tour." Because of roadwork, was hard to get to, but we persisted. Beth was amazing, very knowledgeable and suffered through our horrible jokes while teaching us a little more about wines (ie. what makes a Meritage). Beautiful location and delicious...More
