Vineyard & Winery Tour with Private Tasting

Our Vineyard & Winery Tour with Private Tasting is offered on Fridays and Saturdays from May-October. During this one-hour program, you will join one of Silver Thread’s senior staff for a tour of the vineyard and wine cellar.  The tour is followed by a private, seated, flight-style tasting of the winery’s six estate-grown wines paired with local specialty foods. We promise an educational, behind-the-scenes look at Finger Lakes wine that you won’t find anywhere else.

Important details: Limited to 8 guests (although private groups of up to 14 may be accommodated upon request). Tours begin promptly at the scheduled time. This experience is held rain or shine. Please wear close-toed shoes and clothing appropriate for being outside. Allow 60 minutes for this experience. $20 per person, two free tickets per year for Wine Club and Case Club members.  Reservations required at least 24 hours in advance.

Here are some testimonials from past tour participants:

The owners’ passion for their vineyard and the wine industry of the region really come thru when Shannon and Paul talk to you. Their wines are excellent as well, we really enjoy them.


from Pennsylvania

Loved this little winery! Delicious wines. At the wine tasting they actually taught us about each wine and we did a compare and contrast on whites and reds. Loved them all!


from Ithaca, NY

Shannon and Paul, passionate committed owner winemakers, exhibit care and attention to detail producing great dry wines. It is evident in every glass you taste. Their excitement is contagious. They readily share their expertise; they are warm and friendly teacher/communicators.
