Finger Lakes Goose Watch Wines 

Opening in 1997, Goose Watch is noted as one of New York’s most unique wineries for its setting as well as its wines. First, you’ll take in one of the loveliest views of Cayuga Lake from our tasting room, situated in a beautifully restored century-old barn nestled within one of the area’s only commercial chestnut groves. You are invited to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on our deck, or snack on local cheese and other great delicacies available in our tasting room, including smoked trout.

Goose Watch specializes in truly unique premium wines, with a selection unlike any you will find anywhere in the world. Our exciting new wines are produced from classic European grape varieties such as Pinot Grigio, Viognier, Lemberger and Merlot. Don’t miss our Pinot Noir Brut Rosé Champagne.

Americana Vineyards, Finger Lakes Winery 

Welcome to Americana Vineyards

With just one visit, you will experience our esteemed tradition.
For over 20 years, visitors and guests have been tasting and enjoying the many delicious flavors of Americana wines. Located in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, we craft our wines through a heritage of over 5,000 years of wine making.
Americana Winery is nestled in Cayuga Lake’s picturesque hillsides, a fertile landscape carved out by prehistoric glaciers. As the deep blue waters of the lake warm the land, the sunny days of summer and the cool nights of autumn provide us the perfect condition for growing remarkable grapes that yield delectable wines.
We invite you to experience our wines and the surrounding beauty of Cayuga Lake’s rolling, hidden glens and waterfalls galore.
Your host, Joe Gober, welcomes you to an informative tasting of Americana’s wide variety of wines, from dry whites and hardy reds to light and fruity favorites like our Crystal Lake. We have something for every palette.
Sample some of our own homemade fudge, made right here on the premises. Browse through the wine sales and various hand-painted items in our cozy gift shop.

Order lunch at our Crystal Lake Cafe and enjoy a taste of Americana under our pavilion or around the pond.
Americana Vineyards is located just a short ride up the hill from the beauty of Taughannock Falls State Park.

There is no time like the present to experience the truly unique taste of Americana Vineyards.
