Came to Seneca on a girls long weekend trip to getaway from the hustle and bustle. We had made a reservation and were a few minutes late but they were happy to seat us and even allowed us to bring in our food since we were running late. The views of the sunset are absolutely amazing and our tasting guide (Jim? I believe) was super sweet. We had such a great time chatting with him. He was knowledgeable and enjoyed exchanging stories, which we absolutely love. The wines are great and the entire experience was very enjoyable. If you enjoy bubbles, my favorite hands down was the Pinot Noir Rosé. Sooo good!! I will definitely be returning to this winery!!

Unfortunately we chose to end our 3 day NY wine experience with this winery. This was the only winery that did not allow our 2 month old grandson into the tasting room and all of us agreed we would never return to Atwater. We have been enjoying Seneca Lake wineries for over 30 years and have always made wonderful memories. We will definitely be back to Seneca just not to Atwater.

We strive to provide each party excellent customer satisfaction and regret that you had a negative experience during your recent visit. Our maximum occupancy is determined by social distancing regulations enumerated in state guidelines, and unfortunately we can’t allow children or people under 21 in the tasting room. While we hope conditions relax soon, for now, the safety of guests and staff must be our priority.

The service was poor. The view was pretty and wine was reasonable. We made a reservation for 4 people because 2 people in our party are the designated drivers. The winery would not allow our 2 designated drivers into the tasting area because we did not add them to the reservation and there "was not space". There was plently of room in the tasting area and they should not have had to stay outside in the cold. I do not understand why they needed to wait outside. Also the workers seemed to be uptight during the entire experience.

We endeavor to provide complete customer satisfaction and regret that you had a negative experience during your recent tasting. Our maximum occupancy is determined by social distancing regulations enumerated in state guidelines. Because of our small tasting room and full reservation schedule, we can only meet these guidelines by allowing guests listed on reservations inside for seated tastings. We certainly hope conditions relax soon, but for now, the safety of guests and staff must be our priority.

Liked it so much we went back a second time. The dry riesling is nice and refreshing. Winery is overlooking vineyard that is on a slopping hill on the east side of Lake Seneca. Picnic tables, Adirondack chairs are available. Nice spot to spend the afternoon. Some snacks are available.
