Americana Vineyards

Americana Vineyards Winery is a dog-friendly, family-friendly destination winery housed in a rustic 1820s swing barn, offering 20+ varieties of award-winning wines. They are located 15 minutes north of Ithaca in the center of NYS's Finger Lakes Wine Region. Americana opened in 1981, and is a founding member and anchor winery for the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. The winery is open year round as is their Crystal Lake Café, the adjacent, from-scratch café famous for their popular Sunday Brunch. Americana hosts two year-round musical series: Friday Night Happy Hour from 6:00pm-8:00pm and Sunday Afternoon Music from 4:00pm-6:00pm. During warm weather, the bands play outside in the Pavilion, and in cold or inclement weather, they play in the Small Barn. In addition, Americana hosts 3 major annual events: Woofstock – a local animal rescue benefit – in June; Birthday BBQ Bash around the 4th of July; and their Hallo-wine Spooktacular in October

The Finger Lakes are probably best known for the award winning wines from this region and for good reason. Natural setting and the growing experience of in region winemakers is making for extremely high quality red and white wines. The world class varietals are not all the Finger Lakes get to boast about either. Other farm based beverages have been making a name for themselves in this region. Craft breweries, cideries and distilleries have been opening up throughout the Finger Lakes.

The Finger Lakes embraces its wine culture, providing everyone (well, everyone 21 or older) with the chance to experience and learn about wine. Find out how to pair your favorite wine with dinner, learn about the wine making and production process, and ask your burning questions about wine or grapes at the different winery tours and events held throughout the year.

The different wine trails provide a connection easily navigable way to travel through the area while letting you taste what each has to offer. The Canandaigua Wine Trail takes you from just northeast of the city of Canandaigua all the way down the west side of Canandaigua Lake until you're just south of Naples; this route takes you to six wineries and four breweries. The other three wine trails, the Keuka Lake Wine Trail, the Seneca Lake Wine Trail and the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, take you around the lakes that give them their repective names. The Finger Lakes Beer Trail includes craft breweries from across the Finger Lakes region and will not disappoint even the pickiest of beer connoisseurs.

There is no shortage of options when it comes to quality wine, beer, spirits and experiences in the Finger Lakes. The one thing that will remain constant, however, is the top tier product you will get no matter what you choose.
