A combination of winery and restaurant located on the slopes of Cayuga Lake; the location plays a vital role in creating the best micro-climate for the Knapp vineyards. Knapp produces over thirty types of wine including cordials and aperitifs. Enjoy outstanding Rieslings, Cabernet Francs, Chardonnays and much more. Wines made to suit a variety of palates. The vineyard restaurant opens to a vineyard patio that faces west with a spectacular view of our Riesling vines. Chef creates food using as many local products to ensure a true Finger Lakes wine country experience.

Knapp is my favorite winery with some really exceptional wines. The dry Reisling is my favorite, but the Vignoles and Guwurtztraminer are are equally as good. Always good service, lots of room to taste. Definitely make a point to stop on your trip.

We did like some of the wines here. We did not eat here. The winery is laid out nicely. The server is a student intern. Some of their wines were excellent. Enjoyed looking around at the store as well. We will stop back.

We were visiting the Finger Lakes this weekend and saw that Knapp Winery had a special wine dinner that sounded interesting. Coming from VA we were not inexperienced with good seafood or wine dinners but this was definitely an amazing experience! To start, we were told we could have a full glass of whatever we wanted while waiting to begin.... More

We weren't too thrilled with the wines at this winery. There was one older gentleman there when we arrived. He was very nice and started getting us set up for a tasting when a large group came in. They were placed at the wine bar next to us. It was quite difficult getting service after that, but the gentleman was... More

On June 18, 2016 we had an outstanding 5 course meal, with two wine tastings with each course. At first I was a little concerned because it seemed a little far from the other wineries. I need not of been concerned. The food was outstanding the owner welcoming, and service excellent. Meeting the Chef at the end of the night... More

Been here several times. Stopped today on a whim. Had an excellent lunch of country pate appetizer, then the Bork Burger. Both were excellen, and the burger was done to order, thick and juicy. Service was a bit slow, but it was a beautiful day to be outside, so it really wasn't an issue. The waitress was very attentive and... More

Some friends and I visited this winery this past Saturday morning for a wine tasting. We were rushed through the tasting with no explanation of the wines and at best, held the attention of the winery employee for about 5 minutes. Apparently the staff was too busy setting up for future tasters so had little time for us. We did... More

Loved this restaurant. food was great as well as a great view out on the patio. I had cream of mushroom soup with merlot and it was the best I have ever had. Also had a pear and blue cheese salad and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Hubby had pulled pork and French fries. Wonderful ambiance. A great experience in a... More

Quaint outdoor patio adjacent the vinyard. Friendly staff. Executive Chef John McNabb's Butter Burger with homemade Cayuga Caviar was delicious. Afterwards enjoyed wine tasting of several of the award-winning Knapp wines. A definite must for a summer lunch!!

For something a little different we came to Knapp Winery for the Mother's Day brunch. When we arrived for our reservation the restaurant doors were locked. We had to stand outside waiting as the staff just stood there ignoring us. It would have been nice if someone had opened the door to tell us they weren't ready and to wait.... More
