Attraction details
Owner description: Situated high on Torrey Ridge overlooking one of the deepest parts of Seneca Lake is Fox Run - with fifty-five acres of vineyards producing a remarkable range of fine wines. Behind the winery a vast expanse of vinifera vineyards produce award-winning Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. Plantings of Lemberger, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Gewurztraminer position Fox Run's future on the cutting edge of the Finger Lakes' wine industry. We welcome you to join us in the tasting room, open year round from 10-6 Monday through Saturday and 11-6 on Sundays. (Closed New Years Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.) And don't forget to mark your calendars for the Annual Glorious Garlic Festival, the first full weekend of August every year!

“Be careful. Check your insurance before entering...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

Be aware that Fox Run Vineyards will not take responsibility for damage claims on its property. I attended a public Garlic Festival there and my rented car suffered substantial damage caused by the grounds workers directing me to an unsafe exit path. Fox Runs insurance company deny all claims and the owners refuse to stand up like decent, community minded citizens would.

“Fantastic Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

The vineyard was incredible. The staff was very knowledgeable about the wine and really made the tasting an excellent experience. Other wineries in the area were nice but they poured the wine rambled off something and went onto the next person as though it were an assembly line. Not here!

The place was beautiful and wine was delicious. The deck on the front of the building had an incredible view. I was there as the sun was setting and the photo opportunity was breath taking. Thank you Fox Run for a wonderful visit. I will be back again.

Thank you very much for the kind and positive review. We do try and stand out, since there are an ever increasing number of wineries in the area, and we believe that our staff sharing their knowledge with guests is an important part of the Fox Run experience. Glad you were able to enjoy the café as well before it closes for the season- hopefully you'll be able to make it back next year and enjoy another cheeseboard on the deck when we reopen the café in April!

“Excellent!”

Wine tasting and tour were a wonderful experience! Abby was very knowledgeable both during the wine tasting and the tour. One of the few vineyards in this area that offers regular tours. Well worth taking the time!

We know we lucked out when Abby put in an application with us- we're very fortunate to have her as a member of the team, and love hearing from our guests who get to see how wonderful she is! We're proud to be recognized as a winery that offers more than just tastings- our tours are a great way for the staff to share their knowledge, and a great learning opportunity for our guests that are interested in a little more! We hope to see you in the tasting room again sometime soon- maybe you'll see Abby again as well!

“We love this vineyard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

We do the wine trail every year and this is always on the list. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about what they sell. We are sweet drinkers, but often they will give you a sample to try that wouldn't fall under that category just to see if you would like it. We love to get a glass of wine and cheese and bread platter and sit on the patio and look out over the lake. Everyone should add this to the list!

We love helping our guests find wines that they love- and when we get the chance to open their eyes to something new and they like it, it's all the more rewarding for us! Glad to hear you appreciate our approach to the structure of the wine tasting, and we look forward to seeing you in the tasting room again soon!
