Tug Hill Vineyards

Beautiful, Family-owned Vineyard, Winery and Distillery

Established in 2007, Tug Hill Vineyards is a family-owned vineyard nestled in the Tug Hill Plateau region of Upstate New York. Our 40-acre vineyard overlooks the Black River Valley and Adirondack Mountains, making us one of New York’s most serene and picturesque estate wineries.

At Tug Hill Vineyards, all our products are made with natural ingredients. We focus our wine-making practice on the use of French-American grape hybrids such as Marquette, Frontenac, La Crescent, and more. These cold-hardy grape varieties are developed to withstand our famous harsh winters. Our new artisanal Liqueurs are produced using estate and locally grown fruits and maple syrup.

Come to learn about our products, enjoy the wine, and stay to take in the views from our beautifully landscaped gardens or the Banquet Hall’s screened porch.

Celebrating 10 years of growing cold-hardy grapes in Lewis County!

Wine Cellar and Tasting Room

Come and taste our wines whenever we’re open! We offer wine tastings for $5 which allows you to pick 6 wines to taste from our list of over 20 wines, including sparkling wines and dessert wines. Buy 3 bottles of wine and your wine tasting is free! Our tasting room includes a gift shop designed to offer you all your wine related needs.

Group reservations are required for groups of 8 or more. Please call at least 48 hours in advance: (315) 376-4336

Our tasting room includes a gift shop stocked with wine related products and other local products like goat cheeses, gelato, and coffee. Make the best of your trip by planning to spend some time with us. We have a selection of local cheeses available for purchase, Croghan bologna (a local favorite!), and crackers available for a snack with your wine. Feel free to bring your own picnic, enjoy a glass of wine or beer available here at the winery and relax in our beautifully landscaped gardens located next to our vineyards.
