Whether spring, summer, fall or winter, Glenora Wine Cellars offers tastings and cellar tours all year long. Located on Seneca Lake in New York’s Finger Lakes Wine Country, each season offers a different and unique sight at our picturesque winery resort. We offer wine tastings and cellars tours for individuals and groups alike.
As Seneca Lake’s very first winery and a staple of the region for nearly 40 years, our wines have won numerous awards. We’re constantly innovating and creating new products, under the direction of head winemaker Steve DiFrancesco, who has been with us for over two decades.
From high quality sparkling wines, Rieslings, and a wide variety of red and white vinifera wines to innovative blends, dessert and fruit wines, there truly is a Glenora wine to please every palate. All of our wines are made right here on the premises. Make a reservation for a cellar tour to see “where the magic happens,” as we like to say.
Whether you want to plan a romantic weekend away or are just passing through while visiting nearby Watkins Glen, we’re here to offer you great Finger Lakes winery experience!
