“A Wine Lovers Must on Keuka Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

Don't miss it! In my estimation this is one of the best vineyards in the Finger Lakes region. It is one of the few that has perfected the art of fine, robust reds. They are high on a ridge with a fantastic view of the lake, which you can enjoy while sampling their wines. They also give you a little plate of cheese, spread and chocolate to accompany the tasting - nice touch.
Like Dr Frank, and most likely influenced by him, this vineyard produced several whites and reds made from rare Russian varietals you'll likely find nowhere else. Their Russian Red is magnificent.
I pas the big touristy vineyards by and look for the smaller and artisenal vineyards: Dr Frank, McGregor and Keuka Lake Vineyards, Ravines

“Great winery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

The last stop on our Keuka Lake wine tour. We came around the end, as there was only one table there. You are seated at a table, and they'll bring over the glass and the menu of drinks to choose from. It's about $5 for 5 tastings, plus you get to keep the glass. They also include a plate of snacks/cheese and chocolate to go with your wines. The wines are all quite good, and the server even allowed us to try a few more wines more than the 5. It was nice to just sit, relax and enjoy the view and wine. What a good way to end our wine tour.

“A Beautiful Tasting Deck and Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Our college gang get together includes a trip to McGregor's Vineyard each July. The view from the tasting area is awesome. The wines are very good, although somewhat pricey. For the tasting fee, you are given food samples and you get your wine glass to keep. A big plus is that you can pick which five wines you wish to sample. I like that because I like only dry white wines. If you are visiting the Finger Lakes, I highly recommend this attraction.

“Good Wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

They have some very good wines and some average wines, and a few excellent ones. Their Cabernet Franc was a standout, and their Black Russian Red is the big one, but it's over $50. They have a nice tasting room area and friendly service. We bought some of the local sauces and dressings they have there, but the wine was on the steep side, so we didn't get much.

If you are wine touring, then I recommend you pick up the $12 Passport at one of the winery gift shops. It takes care of the tasting fees for 7 of the main wineries around Keuka for TWO people (although some offer free tastings anyway). It also has discounts to the gift shops, local restaurants, and B&Bs like the Fox Inn where we stayed (see my review).

“fine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

McGregor has a very substantial selection of wines. They are all quite good, but there are almost too many to choose from and they are not inexpensive!
