Okay, before stopping here, folks need to know what they are getting into. This is the anti-winery winery. It's loud, it's boisterous, it doesn't always take itself seriously. There view on tasting is a very laid back one. And sometimes, yes it is very crowded and you will need to flag someone down to get their attention. This is one of the most popular wine stops for a reason! Go in with an open mind and a relaxed attitude and you'll do just fine. I try to come here at least once a year. If you prefer the traditional wine tasting experience, you can go inside to where you purchase the wines.

I went to Cornell and had not been back to Bully Hill since the late 70's. The place has grown tremendously and now it is a tourist destination with a beautiful restaurant with an awesome view and a very well stocked store. The tasting will set you back five bucks and you get to sample five different wines selected by the winery staff. The groups are large and belly up to a big almost horseshoe shaped bar. The staff wants to make the tasting entertaining so they like to be comical and loud. For me, wine is something to enjoy in a more relaxed and personal way so the circus atmosphere was not to my liking. You can also do individual product tastings inside the store for a dollar each. Bully Hill is the largest privately owned winery in NYS and has a wide selection of products. The place i beautiful, the staff pleasant and, except for their particular approach to wine tasting, quite an enjoyable experience.

Views and the setting are wonderful. Wine was good. Service was very good. Dinner was a hit and a miss. My boyfriend's salmon was cooked perfectly and he loved his French onion soup. I had the baked Brie which was ok and the smokehouse platter which was very dry. On noticing that I left most of my meal, the hostess comped us a dessert.

The view from up here has to be among the best in the finger lakes. Stunning. The winery offers a large selection of good wines at a reasonable price. There's a museum and tour available and the restaurant provides outdoor seating to take in the beautiful view. If you're in the area be sure you don't miss it.
