Fox Run Vineyards

Breaking down the barriers to the wine experience.

About Us

Fox Run Vineyards strives to make wine approachable. We believe anyone should be able to enjoy a glass of wine regardless of where they are on the wine experience spectrum. We’re proud to be a lake-friendly farmer, operating on self-generated solar-powered energy. And we live by the motto: Drink wine, be happy.

Tastings & Tours

Our wine tastings are set up as flights. The typical tasting fee is $6 for a flight of five wines.

Learn the ins and outs of viticulture and winemaking with a guided, 45-minute walking tour exploring our vineyards and winemaking facility.  Tours are just $8 per person, and kids ages 15 and under are FREE. We offer tours every day of the week, all year long (weather permitting).  Tours go out every hour, on the hour. The first tour departs at 10 AM, and the last tour at 4 PM.

Reservation Policy

Reservations are required for groups of 10 or more people. We are not able to accommodate groups of 25 or more people on Saturdays or Sundays.  We accept reservations every half hour, Monday-Saturday 10 AM – 1 PM and Sunday 11 AM – 1 PM.  Limos, vans, and buses are not allowed after 3 PM, regardless of the group size.  For more information on group tastings and to make a reservation, please visit the Group tastings page on our website.

Specialty Tastings

Learn more about food and wine pairing through our Food and Wine Experience! You’ll enjoy a unique, personalized tour with a light lunch focused on food and wine pairing.  Owners Scott and Ruth will join you for lunch, served in our historic barrel room—a restored dairy barn from the 1800s. Offered on Fridays, from July-Oct., at 11:30 AM.

Or join us for a private VIP tour with the owner, Scott Osborn, and a tasting that includes wines from the entire Fox Run portfolio.  Additionally, Chef Brud Holland will create a special cheese and charcuterie board just for you to enjoy and pair with the wines.  This unique opportunity is a great way to get to know the real people behind the wines, and have an incredibly personalized experience in the Finger Lakes.

Visit the Fox Run website to see a listing of other special events, from live music to winemakers’ dinners.

Fox Run Cafe and wine by the glass

You can enjoy a delicious, locally-sourced lunch at our Cafe – all house-made.  Or feel free to grab a glass (or can!) of wine. Relax on the deck overlooking Seneca Lake, or on our back patio with a view of the vines.  The Cafe is open seasonally April-December.

Fox Run is family-owned, and has been making estate wines since 1989.
