This was our 2nd winery for the day. It was not crowded when we arrived and we enjoyed a pleasant visit with decent wines. Beautiful views of the lake and great seating area for tastings. Only complaint was as we were leaving it started to get a little more crowded which is fine, but there was only one cashier who was collecting money for purchases and tastings. We did want to buy some bottles, but did not want to wait on a line of 10 people with only one person collecting money so we left our bottles behind.

Stopped with my wife for a tasting on a Sunday afternoon. We shared two tasting flights (five wines for $12 for one flight), and chose the #1 (Dry White & Rosé) and #5 (Bold Dry Red), plus an add-on of the cream sherry ($2). There wasn't a wine in the bunch I wouldn't have gladly taken home, but we ended up buying a bottle of the 2021 Riesling Gewürztraminer, which was fruity and well balanced with just a hint of sweetness, and the cream sherry, which will serve well as an evening accompaniment to chocolate truffles.
Our host, Dave (who I think is a co-owner) was friendly and informative. He walked us through each flight at the beginning, and answered our questions thoroughly.
And yes, the view of the lake was great, although this was a damp and cloudy day so we weren't seeing it at its best. I'd like to go back this summer to take advantage of the deck!

This was our 3rd winery of the day. We chose to stop here because of the patio and view of the lake. Tastings are for a flight of wine. It was difficult to make our selection, as the wine list did not provide any real details of the wines, nor did the person serving us provide much information. We ended up randomly picking our selection which turned out to be okay overall. We did enjoy the view from the outdoor deck during our tasting. They also have a separate building next door where they serve beer, but we did not stop in.

Thank you for visiting Goose Watch. All 9 of our flight offerings are grouped by type in the name of the flight. For example, we offer a Dry White Flight, 2 Dry Red Flights, one with Dry Red, White and Rose, others for Semi-Dry, Semi-Sweet, Sweet, Sparkling etc. However, whoever you asked for more info should have been to give you the information you needed, and I apologize for that. During busy times, we typically have 2 cashers, one taking orders for tastings, and the other for bottle purchases. Perhaps someone was one break at that time. We hope you can visit us again on a return visit to the Finger Lakes.

This was our 3rd stop on the Holiday Shopping Spree Saturday for our group of 4. The views of the lake are amazing.
Our food pairing was Sausage Tortollini Soup. We were seated upstairs in a beautiful space. Each of us chose a flight-I chose dry White.
In the end, I ended up purchasing Two 2 Mango which was on the Sweet tasting list. It had a flavor like sangria.
This would be a great place to sit outside on a nice day!

Got there on a hot Saturday. I believe they had just reopened after the Covid shut down. I loved their sparkling flight, and their ice wine (got bottles of both). My only complaint is that with the regulations you have to drink outside, with very few shaded tables....

It was a fun experience with the server having a great sense of humor, He was very knowledgeable and was very thoughtful in my opinion, We liked everything we tried and what he suggested, The store and many different varieties especially the Concord were excellent. We will stop there again when the chance to get back up there occurs.

We really enjoyed this winery! We had some flights and the wine was delicious and it was a beautiful day so everything was enjoyed outside and the winery was very Covid friendly.

Lots to choose from. We kept to the "dry" menu. There was a blend of Riesling and something that begins with a G that we liked best. The woman who did the tasting knew her stuff and was very nice.

The deck outside was lovely. View was great. But then we left because we were getting wafts of what smelled like sewage... so ... maybe bring nose plugs if you want to sit outside?

went there on a Sunday at 130pm nice day. Had been to a few wineries already but like some of here wines. Usually buy 3 or 4 bottles. Tried to have a tasting $5.00 for 6 little tastes. The young man was well over his abilities. The register seemed to give hard time, problems, 2 people had cases of wine trying to cash out. About ten minutes later he pulled all the bottles out to rescan them? Now there is about 20 people waiting to taste. There is also 2 women with a few bottles waiting to cash out. We asked for are $ back because we are not waiting for a taste. Poor judgement on winery leaving only 1 clueless staff all other wineries had 2 or 3 or more staff. This poor experience will not have me coming back to this beautiful winery that is over an hour away. Shame on owners
