Join us for Vertical Flight Fridays, a one-of-a-kind educational experience with our very own tasting room guru, John Pulos.

The intimate setting will allow for an in-depth look at the Wagner family's expansive history in Finger Lakes Wine Country. To complete this savory experience, you'll receive both cheese and chocolate that has been specifically paired with the wines.

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
