Atwater Vineyards is a family-owned winery located on eighty scenic acres on the eastern side of Seneca Lake seven miles north of Watkins Glen. Our unique site boasts a microclimate ideal for grape production, and we are intimately connected to every vine we grow. This hands-on knowledge allows us to lovingly cultivate the grapes in our vineyards with precision, balance, and high-quality control. As a result, the winemaking team can create thoughtful wines in a variety of styles with the use of neutral barrels, skin and stem inclusion, and sparkling offerings.
Our seated tastings, whether you are a casual wine enthusiast or a seasoned expert, are both fun and enlightening. You will be guided by a dedicated and knowledgeable staff member who describes our winery, our wine and winemaking practices, and what makes our area ideal for wine while receiving your selection of five wines along with a small cracker and cheese sampling. Cheese and charcuterie plates and small bites can be ordered to accompany each tasting via the reservation page or at the time of the tasting. Please allow forty-five minutes to an hour for this enhanced wine tasting in our tasting room or on our deck. Please note that the maximum group size is four and that due to space constraints, dogs are not allowed in our tasting room or on our deck, though they are welcome in our outdoor seating area. While we do not require reservations, we recommend them so that you can have a tasting at your desired day and time.
