In 1805, the same year Lewis & Clark set out on their expedition to explore the west, Caleb Fulkerson journeyed north from a settlement in New Jersey in search of fertile farmland. He staked out a piece of land on the western slopes of Seneca Lake, which grew into the Fulkerson Winery you know and love today. The Fulkerson family now proudly produces over 30 varieties of wine and 33 varieties of fresh grape juice for home winemakers.

Black raspberries were the first commercial crop grown by Fulkerson Farms in the late 1880’s and over the generations the crops expanded to include grapes, apples, peaches and more. Now, the 280-acre farm has around 110 acres of grapes and almost 5 acres of other U-pick fruits and vegetables. Come on out and bring the family to enjoy some great wines and fun times!
Grape Juice & Home Winemaking
Fulkerson proudly offers fresh-pressed grape juice to home winemakers, but you also have the opportunity to pick your own grapes to be crushed. Avid home winemakers appreciate the chance for greater selection and control over their juices. You can even pick your own grapes to create unique hybrids that will give your wine a delicious, personalized flavor. While you’re there, pick up any extra supplies you may need to create the perfect batch of homemade wine.
Fulkerson Farmhouse & Trails
If visiting Fulkerson from out of town, the 1856 Fulkerson Farmhouse is the perfect place to stay and relax. Just 500 feet from the winery, the house has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and large common areas, and has been re-finished to comfortably accommodate up to 10 people.
The farmhouse has direct access to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, lake access within eight miles, and six wineries within two miles. We also maintain over three miles of trails weaving in and out of the Fulkerson Vineyards and woods on the main property. Maps are available in the tasting room, so bring a picnic and enjoy!
