New Wine Releases, Summer Music Schedule and more!

Apr 21st, 2023





The seasonal favorite, Blanc de Franc, is back! Crafted from Cabernet Franc grapes, Blanc de Franc was whole cluster pressed immediately after harvest. Minimal skin contact leaves it a fun, rare white Cabernet Franc. Our 2022 vintage is semi-sweet with lively tropical and stone fruit aromas. Chardonnay is back! The 2021 vintage was aged in French oak for just over a year and is an excellent accompaniment to your pasta with white sauce or chicken dishes. Stainless Chardonnay is a brand new release for us, crisp and refreshing with flavors of lemon, lime, and green apple, accompanied by subtle aromas of white blossom. It was aged in stainless steel to preserve the fresh fruit aromas and flavor characteristics. We recommend enjoying this with grilled seafood or a nice warm day on the boat! We've also released our Riesling Ice Wine. With only 20 cases produced, this limited supply of wine is only available in-store. The Riesling Ice Wine is rich and sweet with flavors of apricot jam. Enjoy it as an after-dinner treat!

As the season starts to gear up and the weather gets nice, we want to remind you of the tasting experiences we offer here at Buttonwood Grove. Our knowledgeable servers will guide you through your tasting experience with a brief history of our estate and our winemaking approach. 

Walk-ins for standard and blind tastings are welcome, but we highly recommend reservations on the weekends to ensure you get a table. 

Standard Tastings
Enjoy an elevated experience when you visit Buttonwood Grove! Enjoy your tasting seated on our covered porch overlooking Cayuga Lake or in our rustically elegant tasting room. Freshly baked bread and artisan cheese will accompany your wine selections. Your experience will be led by one of our fun, friendly, and knowledgeable servers. We can’t wait to see you!

Blind Tastings 
Served in opaque black Riedel crystal glasses, you'll be presented with 4 mystery wines. Our knowledgeable staff will help you use your sense of smell and taste to identify aromas and flavors and try to discern what you've been served. It's so much fun and a great way to increase your appreciation of the subtle flavors and aromas of our artisan wines. A fifth wine of your choosing will finish off the experience. Freshly baked bread and artisan cheese will accompany your wine selections. Give it a try and expand your wine-tasting skills!

Premium Private Tastings - May thru September   
Reservations Needed 
Our premium private seated tasting experiences are hosted in a private, covered space outdoors overlooking our vineyards, punctuated by the colorful lake views. Farmhouse tables set with fresh flowers and charcuterie will set the stage for your elevated outdoor tasting experience. Guests should dress for seasonal temperatures and take into account forecasted weather conditions.

While tasting, groups will get an overview of the history of the Finger Lakes wine region, the story of Buttonwood Grove Winery, and a peek behind the scenes where our award-winning wines are made. You might even bump into one of our winemakers or owners during your experience!







As the cabins open up this weekend, we can't help but get excited for the seasons to come (it could also be these beautiful summer-like days we are experiencing here in the Finger Lakes that are making us eager, too). Warm weather, the breeze off the lake, and delicious wine - what more could you ask for? Book a Finger Lakes getaway today! Each of our cabins is equipped with a comfy bed, sitting room, tv, bathroom, microwave, mini-fridge, toaster, and coffee maker, and we even provide linens and towels! Just pack your bags and we will take care of the rest.

Visit our website for availability and special weekday rates through the month of April.

Drink. Eat. Garden. Repeat. Get a head start on your herb garden. Collect the potted herbs and veggies featured in all the food samples along with the matching recipe collection.

As you savor herb-prepared cuisine, you’ll be offered a wine that compliments that dish and be able to take home the recipes, so that you can be the highlight at your next get-together. You’ll also be offered up to 3 additional wine tastings.

This event is structured like the pre-2020 events.  You’ll select your starting winery and visit the rest of the participating wineries at your own pace.  Tickets are limited – get yours before they sell out!

  • April 29th and 30th OR May 5th and 6th from 10am to 5pm, both days
  • 10 participating wineries
  • This event is structured like our pre-2020 events:
    • Select a specific starting winery for you and your friends to start at. (This is where you’ll receive your souvenir wine glass and first potted herb or vegetable plant!)
    • Travel the trail as you please after your first stop, collecting potted herbs or vegetable plants as you go.
    • The ticket is good for BOTH days, so feel free to spread the wineries out over both days or come on just Saturday or just Sunday. (Pro-tip: Sunday tends to be a lighter day, so the wineries won’t be as crowded, which makes for an excellent time to visit and get more one-on-one attention with less waiting.)
  • Groups are limited to 12.
  • Expect diversity. Some wineries will be offering the standard bar tasting while others will be offering a sit-down experience that may take longer. Take your time during the day and enjoy both!
  • Participating wineries are Montezuma, Swedish Hill, Knapp, Buttonwood Grove, Six Eighy Cellars, Cayuga Ridge, Thirsty Owl, Hosmer, Lucas, and Americana.

Herbs this year are hot pepper, cilantro, dill, oregano, tomato, parsley, cauliflower, sweet pepper, basil, and cabbage.


Each ticket is good for the whole weekend to visit each winery once. Single tickets are $95 and couples tickets are $140 (plus tax and service fee) and include:

  • 1 wine and food pairing at each winery, per person
  • 3 additional wine tastings per winery, per person
  • 1 potted herb or vegetable plant per ticket (1 for a single ticket, 1 for a single DD ticket, and 1 for a couples ticket- if you both want an herb/veggie plant, 2 single tickets are best))
  • 1 recipe collection per ticket
  • 1 souvenir wine glass per person

Discounted designated driver tickets are also available. The DD gets all the same perks as a regular ticket, minus the wine. They also get a DD travel mug, rather than a wine glass. $45 for a single (plus tax and service fee).
