I hadn't visited in a few years, and found this place has gotten significantly more popular than I remember. While I'm happy to see a local business doing well, the crowds take away from the experience and the service wasn't what it used to be. The Cayuga White is still delicious, and the views are fantastic, so I wouldn't let... More

When we first arrived, the vineyard was so packed that we thought there must be a wedding but were informed that it was just a regular (albeit, gorgeous) Saturday. We had an absolute blast at the tasting and received a complementary wine glass. I enjoyed waking around the grounds afterward and many people brought themselves picnic lunches which we would...

My friends and I have been going to this Vineyard for years and we have found that with the increased popularity that the service has been getting very bad. Don't get me wrong...the views are the best! Rolling hillside, grape vines growing, beautiful sunsets! Lots of tables inside, outside (covered and uncovered patios) as well as picnic tables on the...

We went on a Saturday afternoon and the place was packed. Gorgeous views and a beautiful building for wine tasting or for a gathering of friends and/or family. The tour was wonderful with the owner adding in bits about his family and his heritage; I found it very interesting. The lines were long for wine tasting and for wine purchasing... More

The location of Gouveia is probably the best in the state, particularly in the fall when the leaves are changing. The wine is good, though b/c it's local it can vary from year to year. On weekends, particularly in the summer, get there early to get a table b/c it fills up very quickly.

First time at a vineyard. Greeted right as we walked in the door. Did the wine sampling for $10. Good variety of wines to chose from. Was a rainy day. Would go back on a nice day to sit outside and enjoy the view

The location is great with awesome views. There is plenty of space both inside and outside. The only negative thing I can think of is the place has become too popular. The crowds can be large and overwhelming.

Beautiful view, very crowded, wine leaves much to be desired. Destination fine if you enjoy loud crowds and aren't interested in good wine. Limited bathroom facilities.

Have been visiting this place for a few years now. Enjoy the wines there and bring our own food - which is a great plus. The atmosphere there is so relaxing and all our friends have always enjoyed this place.

Gouveia's Vineyard is located on a hillside overlooking acres of vineyards and lots of seating both inside or outside on the patios. A great place for a couple or for a small get-together. Beautiful in both winter or summer, with lovely sunsets.
