North Country Wine Tour
Experience the Wineries of our beautiful North Country while riding in style. The tour will take you along the St. Lawrence River and dip into the fringes of the Adirondak Mountains as you sample outstanding, award-winning vintages. Travel through small towns and villages as we wind our way through some of the most scenic areas in all of Northern New York and experience all they have to offer.
Here are just some of our favorite stops on a typical
North Country Wine Tour.
Coyote Moon Vineyards
We are a family owned and operated Farm Winery, in the heart of the 1000 Islands. With over 1000 awards from wine competitions across the country, we are one of the most award winning wineries in New York State and was named the 2016 & 2017 New York State Winery of the Year! Coyote Moon Vineyards was ranked the #2 Tourism Destination in Northern New York by the Watertown Daily Times and named the Region's Flagship Winery by the Daily Meal. We were also awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and ranked #2 in Things to Do in Clayton, New York.
The Cape Winery
Our vineyards at Deerlick Farm have a unique soil structure on a base of limestone bedrock which imparts a wonderful flavor to the grapes. This magnificent terrior combined with the cool breezes from Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River create the perfect micro-climate for grape production. Visit the winery and try a ‘taste of the Cape’ from our award winning wines.
Clayton Distillery is a farm-based distillery located in the beautiful Thousand Islands region of Northern New York, the first of its kind in the area. Our philosophy is simple: Homegrown. Handcrafted. Start with locally grown raw materials, learn from your mistakes, and improve every batch. As the region’s first micro-distillery, Clayton Distillery produces premium grade distilled products from locally grown grains and fruits.
Thousand Islands Winery
Thousand Islands Winery is your entertainment mecca for both local residents and visitors to the Thousand Islands region! The Winery features monthly family-friendly events that are affordable and open to the general public. These include comedy, live music, craft markets, painting activities, and much more!
Whether you like sweet, dry, red or white, we're confident you'll find your new favorite at Venditti Vineyards! This year we have 11 different wines to offer our customers. The winery is located on acres of rolling meadowland. Enjoy a stroll through the vineyard, a tour of the wine making area and then relax with a glass of wine in the tasting room or on the patio overlooking the vineyard. In the spring of 2014, our winery became one of only 10 New York State wineries to win the prestigious “double gold” medal at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
Otter Creek Winery
Otter Creek Winery, named after the creek it overlooks, opened in 2007 and currently produces over 7000 gallons of 13 different varieties of wine. The use of cold-hardy grapes produces wines unique to this area of the country. Come in and taste the handcrafted wine, while enjoying the beautiful view overlooking the vineyards. One of our favorite things is meeting our customers and hearing what they have to say. Maybe the next great idea will come from you.
Buses seat up to 11 persons.
Actual per person prices will vary depending on size of the group and full capacity.
