First time in lake placid. Stopped in for wine tasting. Good deal, 6 for $6, plus souvenir glass. Was nice, one employee trying to do it all. Needs 2, one for sampling and one for selling and cashing. Thought there was sign on front door for cheese n cracker pairing w/the sample. When sampling only found a bowl of saltines... More

We visited the Swedish Hill tasting room to sample Reisling wines and then visited this tasting room in Lake Placid. Both are from the same winery and both have great wines. We purchased wines at both places. If you visit one and get a glass you can take your glass to the other tasting room for a discount cost for... More

We visited Goose Watch last Saturday. Our host, Kyle, was great - very friendly, knowledgeable, and service-oriented. For $6 you taste 6 wines and get a souvenir glass which we thought was a good deal. The pours are a little light, but with 6 to sample I would say you get enough. We bought several bottles of wine and found... More

Thank you for visiting our tasting room and for taking the time to tell us about your experience! Even though some think that the standard 1/2 ounce pour can be slim, you were very right with your comment on it being enough when you complete your six tastings! After all, we want you be able to taste the flavors in... More

The tasting cost $6.00 for 6 tastings and a free glass. The woman who served the wine said she was the manager of this store and their other one. My sister and I couldn't believe what a small amount of wine she gave us to taste. We've both been to other tastings where the amounts were fairly generous, but this... More

Thank you for visiting our Lake Placid Tasting Room. We're sorry that you didn't enjoy your tasting. However, we require our staff to pour a ½ ounce measure pour. This is a common size used by wineries throughout NYS. Most people find this is more than enough wine for a tasting, in fact many couples share a tasting and still... More

Allison was very knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming when we arrived. She expertly suggested wines based on our tastes and guided us through the process. The prices were very reasonable and we got to keep the cup! I'm so happy that I got to go here!
