6 tastings for $6 and you get a souvenir glass? That's awesome! Bought a couple bottles for myself and one as a gift.

This was a nice wine shop. Not really a winery. We paid $6.00 for 6 tastings and got a free wine glass which you could use at there other winery and only pay $3.00 for 6 tastings. So that was nice. The other winery is Swedish Hill. I enjoyed the tastings and the girl seemed nice. It was right in... More

First of all, it's not a winery. It is a retail shop that does wine tastings. Which wouldn't be a bad thing, but the environment is bland, uninviting and not winery-like at all. All white walls with a few things hung on them. As mentioned before, the staff seemed very disinterested in serving us, to the point where it ruined... More

We stopped in today and did a wine tasting. For $6.00 you get to choose 6 of their wines to taste and get to take home the glass. You can also bring the glass back the next day and try another 6 wines for $3.00. They had a vast selection of wines of every variety... Red/white/dessert...dry, semi-dry, semi-sweet, sweet, etc....

We seen this place as we were walking by and signed up for a wine tasting event. They had a few options available and most were tasty. They don't have a vast selection but enough to chose from. I would recommend this if walking by but not as a separate tour.

As has been mentioned previously, the Goose Watch Winery tasting room is small, and there is no winery on site. Instead, this site serves as an outlet/tasting room for wines made in the Finger Lakes region of New York. The guy assisting us was very friendly and personable, and the wines were decent, especially the Rieslings. There is a nice... More

Although there are not a large selection of wines, the Goose Watch winery offers a nice stop while walking through town. We preferred the wines and the atmosphere at the Swedish Hill winery and had a very attentive host there. The person at the Goose Watch Winery seemed a bit more distracted especially since there were lots of people walking... More
