Wineries

New York is home to around 450 wineries that grow grapes and make wine throughout the state and on Long Island.


New York's commercial wine industry dates back to the early 1800s. In fact, the nation's oldest, continuously operated winery started in 1829 in the Hudson Valley.

Where to Find New York Wineries

Some wineries sit within an hour's drive from New York City, and you'll find many exceptional producers a bit farther off the beaten path. Here's what you should know:

  • Finger Lakes – This grouping of 11 large glacial lakes has more than 140 wineries and several of the most representative producers in New York.
  • Long Island – Nearly 100 wineries sit on the eastern side of Long Island on the North Fork and in the Hamptons area. This is a rustic wine country destination area.
  • Hudson River – More than 50 producers, farms, and cideries specializing in many white varieties and cold climate grapes as you move North.
  • Great Lakes – Lake Erie and Lake Champlain grow multitudes of native and hybrid varieties. Niagara is small but with a growing presence of red and white wines.
