I've always liked this winery because every time I stop in, there's something new to try. They do lean more to the sweet wine drinkers but I always find something I like. This time it was an earthy/sweet honey wine called Tej. It may be a far cry from what you would get in a traditional Ethiopian restaurant or home... More

All the people in here were very pleasant. The wine was great! A huge variety of different wines and a few meads. The also had a distillery which we did not try. Their store had a variety of items to purchase. They even had homemade fudge and cheese.

We visited a handful of wineries during our stay in Skaneateles. This was our favorite. Unpretentious, good wine and spirits, friendly staff, and reasonable prices. We walked away with a mixed case of wine and spirits. The honey-based mead and liquor were very good, as was the corn-based "white lightning". Highly recommend if you can only stop at 1 winery.

The winery, first off, is very nice. It is on the main drag, too. While we are not so much into wine tasting..we wanted to try it. Their sweet wines are, in deed, good. They also had spirits. We purchased some sweet blush wine. But, even if you come with family that don't want to do the wine tasting, the... More

I had never been to a winery before my trip to Seneca Falls, and I thought Montezuma was a great place. I'm certainly not very knowledgeable when it comes to wines, but the staff there was really helpful. They weren't terribly busy so we got some extra attention, and some back ground on the wines they served/sold. If you're interested... More

We tend to prefer dry reds, so going here was something a little different for us. We really enjoyed the wines, and bought 3 different bottles, including two sweet wines. The sweet wines were their speciality and you can see why. The drier wines were pleasant, but in my opinion unremarkable. Their sweet wines, however, were really lovely. I chose... More

The staff was cool and unfriendly. Before the tasting began, the girl (who didnt even bother to greet us) threw the crayon at us. The wine was awful and putrid. We love the finger lakes and have been to so many great wineries here, so coming back for the 3rd year in a row, montezuma was a huge disappointment. This... More

This winery was our first stop of the day. The young woman who was there was friendly and knowledgable. We purchased the pear wine which was excellent. I now wished I had bought more! They have a very nice gift shop compared to all of the other wineries we visited. So if you go their and see something you like... More

They have a nice selection of wine, and I like sweeter, and found they had a great selection of sweeter wines. Cute little gift shop. Tasting fee was reasonable ... would visit again if in the area.
