Attraction details
Owner description: Situated high on Torrey Ridge overlooking one of the deepest parts of Seneca Lake is Fox Run - with fifty-five acres of vineyards producing a remarkable range of fine wines. Behind the winery a vast expanse of vinifera vineyards produce award-winning Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. Plantings of Lemberger, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Gewurztraminer position Fox Run's future on the cutting edge of the Finger Lakes' wine industry. We welcome you to join us in the tasting room, open year round from 10-6 Monday through Saturday and 11-6 on Sundays. (Closed New Years Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.) And don't forget to mark your calendars for the Annual Glorious Garlic Festival, the first full weekend of August every year!

We stumbled on Fox Run by sheer chance, as we were staying less than half a mile away (on the lake). We knew we would be visiting, since it was just a short walk and they served food as well as wine. And we knew that Finger Lakes wines can be uneven. But Fox Run's products are actually quite good - and they really do the whole job right on premises: cultivate vines, make wine, bottle and age it. (I mention this because it turned out that they also perform one or more of these functions for some of the other wineries in the area.) The semi-dry Riesling became a favorite; we also enjoyed the Cabernet-Lemberger blend and the flowery Gewurtzraminer. The tour is informative, the tasting fun, and the food remarkably good. Not to mention the lake view from the terrace!

It sounds like we hit a home run for you- tour, tasting and lunch! Great to hear you enjoyed your visit to the Finger Lakes, and wonderful to hear we've helped prove that Finger Lakes wines are delicious! Hopefully we'll see you again soon- maybe when the Café reopens in April?!

We visited Fox Run during our family reunion to The Fingerlakes. We had 11 guests total with us. It was extremely hot and humid outside but half of us took the complimentary vineyard tour. Very neat to see how things are done! The wine tasting cost was $5 per person and very fun. The wines are ok but the customer service was top notch. We left a tip for the staff.

Be aware that Fox Run Vineyards will not take responsibility for damage claims on its property. I attended a public Garlic Festival there and my rented car suffered substantial damage caused by the grounds workers directing me to an unsafe exit path. Fox Runs insurance company deny all claims and the owners refuse to stand up like decent, community minded citizens would.

The vineyard was incredible. The staff was very knowledgeable about the wine and really made the tasting an excellent experience. Other wineries in the area were nice but they poured the wine rambled off something and went onto the next person as though it were an assembly line. Not here!

The place was beautiful and wine was delicious. The deck on the front of the building had an incredible view. I was there as the sun was setting and the photo opportunity was breath taking. Thank you Fox Run for a wonderful visit. I will be back again.

Thank you very much for the kind and positive review. We do try and stand out, since there are an ever increasing number of wineries in the area, and we believe that our staff sharing their knowledge with guests is an important part of the Fox Run experience. Glad you were able to enjoy the café as well before it closes for the season- hopefully you'll be able to make it back next year and enjoy another cheeseboard on the deck when we reopen the café in April!
