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.  Fox Run is family-owned and has been making estate wines since 1989.  And we live by the motto: Drink wine, be happy.

Our tasting room is open.  We’re excited to welcome you back!  Please visit our website to view our policies and what to expect when visiting us. 

Tastings & Tours

Our wine tastings are set up as flights and are seated/indoors. The typical tasting fee is $10 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 taking a peek inside our winemaking facility.  Tours are $10 for adults, $5 for children under 15, and free for children under 5.  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.

At this time, tours will be limited to 6 people or less each hour.

Reservation Policy

We do NOT require reservations for wine tastings at this time. All tastings are first come, first served.  The group size that we are accepting is limited to 6 people or less. We are open to accepting larger groups (up to 12 people), if traveling in individual vehicles. Groups of 6 people or more will be split into groups of 6 or fewer at the wine tasting bar (usually in separate rooms and possibly at different times depending on availability).

Please visit the Reservations page on our website to view more details.

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. Due to space restrictions, we are unable to schedule VIP Tours on Saturdays until further notice.

Fox Run Cafe and wine by the glass

Our Cafe is closed for the season.  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.
