Owner description: Situated high on Torrey Ridge overlooking one of the deepest parts of Seneca Lake is Fox Run - with fifty-five acres of vineyards producing a remarkable range of fine wines. Behind the winery a vast expanse of vinifera vineyards produce award-winning Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. Plantings of Lemberger, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Gewurztraminer position Fox Run's future on the cutting edge of the Finger Lakes' wine industry. We welcome you to join us in the tasting room, open year round from 10-6 Monday through Saturday and 11-6 on Sundays. (Closed New Years Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.) And don't forget to mark your calendars for the Annual Glorious Garlic Festival, the first full weekend of August every year!

“Excellent combination of wine tasting and eating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

It's a shame with all these fine vineyards at the Finger Lakes having so few combining their offering with food. Fox Run breaks this pattern by having a nice cafe serving local produce with their own wine. That's highly appreciated! The cafe has lake view!

Wine tasting section is quite elaborate allowing you to try any number of wines through their full range.

We're very proud of the New York State product driven Café & Market here at Fox Run, and it's wonderful to hear from our guests who love it as much as we do! Our garden has been providing all sorts of fresh fruits and vegetables that we use in the café this year, and they pair so well with the wines that were grown from the same soil; they just make a natural pair. Stop back for the Garlic Festival in August to check out our garlic-centric menu!

“Nice discovery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

On route to Niagara Falls, we decided to find a place to eat and Fox Run Vineyards popped up on our search. We drove all the way and was so glad we did. Great views. We ordered a sample cheese and wine platter to nibble on and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also had the naan pizza with mozzarella and tomato which was delicious. Outside seating was great with the view of Seneca lake. Will go back to this region again with my husband.

Our cheeseboards paired with wine flights are a fan favorite for sure! Be sure to stop by again later in the year, our naan flatbread pizzas will be featuring items grown in the Fox Run garden! We look forward to your next visit!

“Beautiful tasting room, cheeses, and wine variety”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Our group of 6 enjoyed a rainy day wine tasting on-site at Fox Run. It was a fun way to spend a less than perfect weather day. We tried 5 wines and a delicious white port for under $5. We loved the beautiful tasting room and cafe space. The Fox Trot Red and white port were favorites of our group!

Sometimes there is nothing better than visiting wineries on a rainy day! Very glad to hear you enjoyed your visit and our wines. Hopefully you got a copy of the recipe for our Fox Trot Sangria! Cheers!

“Good place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

This place was pretty good, had a nice sweet/dry selection and was very accommodating and friendly. The inside was really nice and the flowers in bloom on the outside hanging were beautiful.

“A Seneca Lake favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We loved Fox Run the first time we visited last year and go back every time. We are even wine club members and receive shipments from them 4 times a year. Although they only send 2 bottles with each shipments, without fail we add on plenty more!

The wine is very very good and they have a nice variety of dry and sweet reds and whites. They even have a cafe for when you get hungry (or might need to soak up some of the wine!) The last 2 times we got cheese platters and they were very tasty! Our last visit we even bought the cheese/wine pairing platter and it was fantastic. We would easily go there for lunch and do that again. There is outdoor seating as well in the front of the building which overlooks the lake, and in the back which overlooks the vineyard itself. Wherever you sit, you can't go wrong!

The place is always hoppin' so I'm sure we're not the only ones who feel this way about Fox Run. A must visit if you love wine!

Thanks so much for sharing your Fox Run love! Our wine club members certainly do mean a lot to us. Did you know we have an exclusive Wine Club Tent at the Glorious Garlic Festival every year, where members get to hang out with the winemaking team? Hopefully we'll see you there! Cheers!
