Cayuga Lake Wine Trail Turns 25, Celebrate

In 1983 there were five small new wineries: Plane’s (Cayuga Ridge), Lucas, Americana, Lakeshore and Frontenac. But five unknown wineries weren’t enough of a draw, and Mary solicited participation from other attractions along and near Route 89. The first brochure was audacious – a quote: “The CWT offers a variety that is unmatched in wine touring and tasting…No where else will travelers experience such a multitude of premium wines, attractions, comfortable lodgings, fine restaurants, friendly people, and splendid scenery.” A bit overstated then, but coming to fruition now. New wineries started and joined: Knapp in 1984; Hosmer and Swedish Hill in 1986; Six Mile Creek in 1987; and King Ferry, Goose Watch, Sheldrake Point, and Long Point in the 90’s. Bellwether Hard Cider joined in 2000, Montezuma and Thirsty Owl, in 2003, Buttonwood Grove Winery in 2005 and our newest member, Cobblestone Farm Winery in 2006.
