Take a winery tour at Swedish Hill!
We offer winery tours Memorial Day through October with harvest being the prime time to take a winery tour in the Finger Lakes! Grape harvest typically begins around Labor Day and lasts through October. While we cannot guarantee that you will be able to see our winemaking crew pressing grapes during every tour (we usually press early in the morning while temperatures are still low), it’s the best chance to see our press deck in action!
