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!

I highly recommend this vineyard.We were concerned that a winery tour would only be tasting. This vineyard provided a tour including the vines and the production facility. The fee for the tour was modest. It was very interesting and wonderful for our kids. Our guide, "Ross" was extremely informative. Afterwards, we tasted some wines and bought a few modestly priced bottles. I could not find another vineyard in the area that had a tour of the fields and the wine making facility. We just did the tour today and already advised our friends to go there.

We know that the Finger Lakes is a destination for families for many different reasons, and while we support responsible consumption of our wines by those of legal drinking age, we love to share our passion for wine with guests of all ages- after all, you never know who might be inspired to delve into winemaking because of a tour they took at as a child here at Fox Run! We also know that Ross is a great source of information, and is frequently complimented on his tours. Thanks for sharing your experience, and hopefully we'll see you and the whole family back again soon!

The girlfriend and I took her folks down from Rochester for a tasting as an anniversary gift. The Finger Lakes area is very nice; rolling hills, lots of local merchants, Geneva itself is very charming. Just south of Geneva is where the wineries start and having been to six or so, we somehow always end up at Fox Run. The staff is very friendly, even though it seems they are always quite busy. The tastings they offer are either sweet or dry varietals, but you have some options if you want to "order off the menu." They make suggestions for the type of food that works best with their offerings, and there is a small deli on premises if you need something to eat. Even for a wine novice, you would be put at ease here. Highly recommended.

Took my girlfriend to the vineyard for a day trip. I, having been there once before, was once again very pleased with the level of customer service this vineyard provides- creating a total experience. My girlfriend and I were able to take a tour of the vineyard and, only having started with a basic knowledge of wine, walked away with a wealth of knowledge that was both interesting and fun. Our tour guide Randy made the experience what it was. After the tour we went inside for a tasting. By the end of our Flight A tasting, he knew just what we would both like and actually recommended a wine that we both enjoyed.

The deck overlooking the lake is the perfect place to sit down and have another glass. Though we didn't try any of the food items, the cafe options looked delicious. We will definitely be back in the future.

It's great to know our guests enjoy themselves so much that they look forward to bringing their friends and family in for a visit as well! Many thanks for the kind words regarding Randy's tour and tasting with you- we know we are very lucky to have him on staff, and hearing how much our guests enjoy him as well reinforces that. Hopefully next time you'll be able to enjoy a bite from the café. Cheers!

My wife and I were fortunate enough to get to take part in a wine tour with a host of judges from the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition and our last unannounced stop of the tour was Fox Run. Fox Run is our favorite winery in the Finger Lakes, so we could not have been more pleased to stop there with our esteemed tour group.

We visited over the weekend, and came in close to the end of the day. We were greeted warmly and taken through a tasting of wines with the knowledgeable and personable tasting room manager. We have been impressed over the years how this winery has matured into a real standout in the Finger Lakes region. We picked up a few new wines, and we will certainly be back.
