CAYUGA LAKE WINE TRAIL MEMBER
With just one visit, you will experience our esteemed tradition. For over 20 years, visitors and guests have been tasting and enjoying the many delicious flavors of Americana wines. Located in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, we craft our wines through a heritage of over 5,000 years of wine making. Americana Winery is nestled in Cayuga Lake's picturesque hillsides, a fertile landscape carved out by prehistoric glaciers. As the deep blue waters of the lake warm the land, the sunny days of summer and the cool nights of autumn provide us the perfect condition for growing remarkable grapes that yield delectable wines. We invite you to experience our wines and the surrounding beauty of Cayuga Lake's rolling, hidden glens and waterfalls galore. Your host, Joe Gober, welcomes you to an informative tasting of Americana's wide variety of wines, from dry whites and hardy reds to light and fruity favorites like our Crystal Lake. We have something for every palette. Sample some of our own homemade fudge, made right here on the premises. Browse through the wine sales and various hand-painted items in our cozy gift shop. Order lunch at our Crystal Lake Cafe and enjoy a taste of Americana under our pavilion or around the pond. Americana Vineyards is located just a short ride up the hill from the beauty of Taughannock Falls State Park. There is no time like the present to experience the truly unique taste of Americana Vineyards.
For a casual, locavore dining experience, visit the from-scratch kitchen of Chefs Lindsay Freeman and Jen Ungberg. Bread is baked on premises. Sausage is made in the kitchen. Many of the fruits and vegetables that appear in their recipes are grown in the gardens out back. And the weekly specials always showcase the finest seasonal and local ingredients. Year-round, lunch and dinner is available in the quaint, retro dining room. And in the summer, dining on the porch, breezeway or Pavilion adds the eatery’s charming choices. And the Café rumored to have the best Sunday brunch in the Finger Lakes.
