Wine is delicious year-round, and it always seems to taste better on vacation. On your next trip to the Geneva, NY, area, consider dedicating an afternoon to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. This wine trail is a true oenophile’s journey, with stops at each unique winery in the area. Whether you want to visit purely for the wine trail and visit all of the wineries or if you just want to spend an afternoon tasting, we created a guide to some of our favorite wineries on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. All are located near Belhurst Castle. You’re not far away from a memorable afternoon sipping away!

Our Favorite Wineries on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail

There are so many amazing wineries on the trail to count, so we decided to narrow it down to the top four wineries that we think are a must visit. Experience unique beauty at each winery, and, of course, tasteful wines throughout. You may even find your new favorite! 

  1. Belhurst Estate Winery: Just steps away from your room at Belhurst Castle, experience all of our handcrafted wines. With a wide-variety of sweet, semi-sweet and dry, there is something for everyone! Guests especially love our historical collection – a group of wines that pay homage to our history! No reservations are required for groups of eight or less. If your group is eight to ten people, you must submit a reservation request on our website 
  2. Anthony Road Wine Company: For over 50 years, Anthony Road Wine Company has been perfecting its array of vino. Flights of wine for tasting cost $10 to $15, with individual local cheese plates for $5.
  3. Ventosa Vineyards: Enjoy your wine tasting in a Tuscan setting. Ventosa Vineyards is known for its dry, old-world-style red wines and their Mediterranean-style cuisine served at their cafe.
  4. White Springs Farm Winery: Located just two minutes away from Belhurst Castle, you can find delicious wine and beer here. Tastings are $10 per person, and you can choose five different wine labels or craft beers per flight. Due to COVID-19, four people are allowed per tasting group.
