Keuka: The literal indigenous meaning is “Lake with an elbow”. It is the most unusually shaped of all the Finger Lakes and one of the shallowest. Because of its shallow depths, Keuka has one of the warmest water temperatures ideal for moderating the environment to grow premium grapes. We will begin with breathtaking views of the Lake, a luncheon at The Bully Hill Restaurant and visits to four of the five wineries surrounding Keuka Lake. Due to the Covid 19 we will choose based on availability what wineries we visit. We will take your recommendations of which wineries to visit but cannot guarantee them. Door-to-door service from area accommodations or departure from the Finger Lakes Casino and Racetrack is at 9:00 a.m.
Enjoy wine creations of Morten Hallgren grown on the southeastern shores of Lake Keuka.
Start the day off with a tasting at this famous winemaking facility. Learn more about the colorful wines and history that makes Bully Hill legendary. After a wonderful wine tasting, enjoy a fabulous lunch with creative cuisine and stunning views of Lake Keuka.

The McGregor family established their winery in 1980 and began producing Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Noir that year. Since its inception, McGregor Winery has followed the European philosophy of winemaking. Each year’s production of estate bottled wines is a reflection of the “voice of the grapes”, the skill of the vineyard manager and the art of the winemaker.
