Alta B Weekend is our annual celebration in memory of Bill Wagner’s mother, Alta Button Wagner. The first Alta B Day was held in July of 1980, as Alta’s 83rd birthday party. We have continued this tradition and we invite you to celebrate with us! There are no tickets – just show up and stay for a bit or enjoy the music on the Brew Deck all day.
During Alta B Weekend we offer special tastings, live music, contests, door prizes and to cap off the celebratory weekend, cake! In the gift shop you can also take advantage of the best discounts of the year on wine, beer and gift items.
Open Year Round for Tours, Wine & Beer Tastings & Sales Daily from 10am-5pm. Guided winery tours are offered on weekdays at 11am, 1:30pm, and 3pm, and on Sat & Sun at 11:30am and 1:30pm (please note: tours may not be offered during wine trail events or other special event days). Reservations are required for all chauffeured groups of any size arriving by bus, limousine, or van. Non-chauffeured groups of 8 or more will also require a reservation.

Wagner Vineyards was established in 1979, making it the first winery on the east side of Seneca Lake to open their doors. An estate winery, the Wagner family has grown grapes in this area for more than 100 years and are now in their fifth generation of growers on the farm. Winemaker, Ann Raffetto, began with Wagner Vineyards in 1982, making her the first female winemaker at a Farm Winery in the Finger Lakes. The world class wines produced at Wagner Vineyards are the result of the vast experience and tight-knit collaboration between grape growers and winemaker.
Wagner Valley Brewing Co., which shares a home with the winery, opened in 1997, making it the first craft brewery in the Finger Lakes. At any given time you can find six or more brews on draft, all handcrafted on site in our German-style, traditional brewhaus. You can now take home any of our draft beers in a Collos-O-Can, a 32 oz aluminum can filled with your favorite draft beer then sealed on site for freshness. These sealed cans keep beer fresh for more than a month! Select styles available in 12 oz bottles. More information available at wagnerbrewing.com
