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.

Featured Winery: CJS Vineyards

CJS Vineyards and Aurelius Winery specializes in making crisp, clean, exciting wines in dry and semi-dry styles that compliment a wide variety of cuisines; the winery boasts, “a wine for every meal.”

CJS Vineyards were established in 1995 with a small planting of Riesling and Cayuga White grapes. Today, there is a total of three acres of vineyards that also include Chambourcin, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Franc vines. The Aurelius Winery building, which also serves as the tasting room, opened in May 2003.

Featured new releases include the ‘2006 Riesling’ with fresh citrus flavors and a crisp acidic finish and ‘Villagio Blanco,’ a delicious zesty, tart wine with a lemon sent. Both of these wines are perfect with summer cuisine.

The CJS Vineyards & Aurelius Winery Tasting Room is open April through December, Saturdays and Sundays, 12 noon – 5 p.m., or by appointment. Their number is 315-730-4619, and email wine@cjsvineyards.com or visit www.cjsvineyards.com.
