About this Event
The Ithaca Wine and Waterfalls Tour is the perfect excursion for guests who would like to experience the wonderful wines, and natural beauty of our region in a 3.5 hour tour. On this tour, we feature three stops around Ithaca – two that are home to producers of hand-crafted, boutique-styled wines, and one that shows off our favorite waterfall in Ithaca!
We first stop at Ports of New York, where Frederic Bouche’ continues the tradition of wine making that his father started in Normandy, France. Learn how Frederic makes his fabulous elegant white and red ports, share in an intimate red & white port tasting paired with selected items, and explore his family’s history of wine making in France through his personal museum collection.
Our next stop is Six Mile Creek Winery, Ithaca’s own boutique winery. We will drive down into the vineyard where you will be met with one of the winery staff who will provide a vineyard and winery tour, and share with you what makes the Six Mile Creek vineyard different than other wineries on the lake. Afterwards, you will taste their classic Finger Lakes varietals paired with local cheese, and have the opportunity to taste one of their unique grape-based spirits, distilled in a traditional Italian style right at the winery–truly a special treat.
Our last stop is the spectacular Ithaca Falls. We will get up close and personal with this awe-inspiring 135ft waterfall, providing the perfect ending to the afternoon.
Join us on this tour and get a taste of how good it gets in Ithaca!
