What to bring

When planning your Finger Lakes Wine Tour, we know that you want to be prepared in order to get the most out of your experience. Here are a few recommendations for what to bring:

  • Valid, unexpired ID

    • Remember, the wineries that you visit are subject to the same laws as restaurants and bars. Make sure you bring ID to prove that you're over 21!

  • Water bottle

    • Even in Upstate New York it can get hot during the summer. We encourage our guests to hydrate between stops in order to stay comfortable.

  • Light jacket/windbreaker

    • Some of the wineries, especially those up a bit higher, can get breezy. We recommend a light jacket if you tend to get chilly.

  • Camera

    • This is a must! Bring your camera or smartphone to get snaps to remember your trip by. Pro Tip: Make your friends jealous by posting pictures from your tour to social media!

  • Small notebook

    • When tasting wines, we find it's helpful to take brief notes on what we like and what what we don't. After several wineries, it's easy to forget whose Riesling was your favorite!

  • Appetite for fun!

    • This one is the most important! Be ready to see beautiful sights and taste award winning wines on your Finger Lakes Wine Tour.

Join-in Wine Tours

Traveling the Finger Lakes wine trails with Keuka Taxi is an exciting way to spend the weekend with your friends. We start offering wine tours in the spring and continue through the summer. During the spring, the off-season allows you to have a more personal experience as you are more likely to enjoy a conversation during the owner and winemakers during your tasting experience. The summer is a busy time of year for wineries in the area, but it also allows you to enjoy the warm, breezy atmosphere around the Finger Lakes.

$65.00/per person - you must be at least 21 years of age

Ticket only includes transportation costs; you must still purchase a ticket from the venue

 

Keuka Taxi offers transportation packages for the following trail events:

Keuka in Bloom – Spring is in the air and it’s the perfect time to enjoy a wine tasting in Keuka Lake!

Fire It Up! – Summer is the perfect time to enjoy pairings of cool climate wines with barbecue and summertime side dishes on the Keuka Lake Wine Trail. Not only can you experience tasting 20 different wine samples from all the local wineries, but also over a dozen food samples prepared with local sauces, rubs and marinades. Each participant also receives a complimentary Keuka Lake Wine Trail wine glass.

Smokin’ Summer Kickoff – Celebrate summer in the Finger Lakes with delicious wine and food pairings! The experience includes a self-guided tour through the 24 participating wineries around Seneca Lake with samples of grilled foods and summertime favorites.
