We wine tasted several kinds of wine made by Bear Paw. The server was very nice even though we came in 1/2 hour before closing. She was generous and happy. The wine tasting included 6 different tastes. It was fun.

Had a very nice time tasting their many wines. A flight of 6 wines offered but they serve above and beyond what you pay if you are curious to try other wines, too. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable

Went there yesterday and had a nice time. Did a wine tasting and they have some very nice offerings. They carry a couple of different wine slushies daily, which are very good. Nice amount of outdoor seating to enjoy the upstate sunshine.

This is not a fancy winery, but it was a nice stop. I enjoyed the different wines, If you like wine and are in the area, I suggest you stop in.

I never like leaving poor reviews, but Bear Pond was below average compared to other NY wineries. The wines were okay. There was really no ambience as its a smaller place right off the highway. The bar tender had minimal understanding of the wines we...More

Hello Chris, I am sorry to hear that your experience was not as you expected. With more than 30 wines to choose from it is apparent that we failed in helping you select wines that you would like. As you mentioned, we rushed you through...More
