Plan Your Wine Tour Itinerary
We are happy to provide the following tips to help you plan your visit to Seneca Lake. If you have specific questions that aren’t addressed here, feel free to give the Wine Trail Office a call: 607-535-8080. This page was last updated on 6/18/2021.
- Masks. If you are vaccinated, it’s not a bad idea to have a mask with you just in case you need to be in close proximity to others with unknown vaccination status. If you are unvaccinated, please wear a mask when you’re inside or in close quarters with others, on the honor system.
- Reservations & Walk-Ins. Most wineries are now accepting walk in visitors. Some do still require reservations. Where reservations are recommended or suggested, we strongly encourage you to make them. Please review individual winery policies (listed below).
- Groups/Buses/Limos. Always confirm winery policies before booking transportation. Please do not attempt to skirt group size maximums by splitting groups. Groups who do not follow winery policies run the risk of being turned away and that isn’t fun for anyone.
