You read it right; we said BACON! The wineries have paired tantalizing bacon dishes with CLWT wines for your pleasure. Your taste buds will thank us later. At every winery, leave a ticket stub in the piggy bank for a chance to win 1 of 8 BBQ-themed grand prizes.
Besides sampling bacon-infused dishes, you’ll sample a wine that compliments that dish, and also be offered up to 3 more additional wine tastings.
In addition, make sure to visit each of the 14 wineries to be eligible to win multiple BBQ-themed grand prizes. Just pop off a stub from your ticket at each winery and deposit into a Cayuga Lake Wine Trail Piggy Bank. The more wineries you visit the more chances you have to win! There are also 2 bonus tabs to use at any winery of your choosing!

Discounted designated driver tickets are available. The DD gets all the same perks as a regular ticket, minus the wine. They also get a DD travel mug, rather than a wine glass. $17.50 for a single (plus tax and processing fee).
Packages that offer tickets, transportation and accommodations are also available.
Be sure to buy your tickets early, we have a limited amount available per weekend.
If you’re part of a large group (15+), we ask that you contact the office for scheduling assistance. We try to keep track of and maintain as many large groups as we can to prevent overflow and clogs at the wineries. We reserve the right to limit the number of large groups purchasing tickets.

1981 - Mary Plane, of Plane's Cayuga Vineyards (now called Cayuga Ridge), looked at her empty parking lot and knew, if her fledgling winery was to succeed, she needed to fill it. What could she do to entice people to visit? Would people come if there were more to do, more to see? Thus began Mary's vision of the Cayuga Wine Trail. And, Mary was right!
In 1983 there were five small new wineries: Plane's (Cayuga Ridge), Lucas, Americana, Lakeshore and Frontenac. But five unknown wineries weren't enough of a draw, and Mary solicited participation from other attractions along and near Route 89. The first brochure was audacious - a quote: "The CWT offers a variety that is unmatched in wine touring and tasting...No where else will travelers experience such a multitude of premium wines, attractions, comfortable lodgings, fine restaurants, friendly people, and splendid scenery." A bit overstated then, but coming to fruition now. New wineries started and joined: Knapp in 1984; Hosmer and Swedish Hill in 1986; Six Mile Creek in 1987; and King Ferry, Goose Watch, Sheldrake Point, and Long Point in the 90's. Bellwether Hard Cider joined in 2000, Montezuma and Thirsty Owl, in 2003, Buttonwood Grove Winery in 2005 and our newest member, Cobblestone Farm Winery in 2006.
What makes us different? We were all grape growers first. We didn't inherit big estates and established businesses. When the bottom fell out of the grape market in the mid 70's, we adapted and changed to preserve our resources to grow and prosper. In addition to managing and working in our own wineries, we conduct the business of the CWT utilizing the time, energy, and knowledge of our members.
As the first wine trail in New York, the Cayuga Wine Trail has become a model for other wine trails both in New York and around the country. It is a benchmark for results attained by working together for a common goal. Thanks Mary!
