Passports can be purchased below online and mailed directly to you 3 weeks in advance of your visit. If you are visiting inside of 3 weeks, you should purchased directly at a participating winery.

This passport is not intended for large groups. If you are traveling in groups of 8 or more people, additional tasting fees will apply. Visit our Large Group Tours page to learn more about large groups on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail.
Visit the Trail during weekdays, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, for a more intimate wine tasting experience with far fewer crowds. At $25 plus tax, this passport gives residents and visitors alike a convenient and affordable way to enjoy many of the wineries on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail.
A passport is a simple document that for a set price enables an individual to enjoy a complimentary, standard flight of wines at each of the participating wineries listed in the booklet, one time each. Normal tasting fees at the wineries range from $3-$6 per winery for a standard flight of wine samples. Passports are an especially great value for regional residents that can readily visit our Trail more than once per season, enabling them to explore all of the many participating wineries across multiple weeks. One-time visitors to the region that plan on visiting at least 8-10 wineries will likely also find this product to be a good value. If your plan is to visit fewer than 8 wineries, then it is probably wise to not purchase the passport, and instead pay the incremental tasting fees that are common to most wineries in the region.
Here is how it works: once you’ve purchased a passport, you can visit any of the participating wineries during their regular business hours, at your leisure. The winery will stamp or mark the appropriate space in your passport. There are no blackout dates, they are good every week day (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday) through its duration; you may visit some wineries one day, come back at a later date and visit a few more!
Our passport products continue to feature a perk that we found to be successful and appreciated by our customers. If you purchase at least one bottle of wine a majority of the participating wineries, make sure the winery stamps that separate designated page in your passport, mail that stamped page back to the Trail office by the due date, and you will receive a complimentary passport of the same kind, for next season! Please review each page in the passport to learn more about the individual participating winery and any specials they may have.
