We each had a choice of 6 samples of wine from a large selection of whites and reds. The manager explained the various types of wines with a little history. She was very pleasant and eager to please. The wines were reasonably priced and everyone found one to their liking. Would go back. Located in the heart of the Main... More

Came in to this place to check out and taste the wine however the staff seemed disinterested in waiting on us and when we asked her a question she seemed to have no knowledge about the various wines. Stay away.

We walked here from our hotel after visiting the Swedish Hill tasting room earlier in the day. This shop is smaller but also had some nice wine reasonably priced. Friendly staff.

We went to the location outside of town first and learned that there is another place in town. If you pay for tasting at one ($10 but includes the wine glass) you can sample at the other for only $4. Overall the wines were good for NY and the staff at both places was knowledgeable and friendly.

My husband and I stopped in for a quick tasting on Saint Patties Day, it was nice. The woman helping us was very friendly. We didn't feel rushed or pressured to buy anything. This is just a very nice informal tasting of some delicious wines! We will return when we come back to town!

We stopped in to Goose Watch Winery in Lake Placid the day after Thanksgiving while strolling through town, and we're glad we did! For $5 we tasted 6 wines, guided by Erica, the friendly and fun wine steward. I love to give bottles of wine as gifts, so we stocked up on delicious NY wines from the Finger Lakes. If... More

You could skip both "Wineries" in Lake Placid. First of all the wineries are actually in the Finger Lakes Region not the ADK. Sampling pours are tiny!! And the quality not so great!! Save your time and $ go buy a bottle of wine and enjoy it from the comfy Adirondack chairs on the public beach!! We did at sunset!!... More
