A brief history

Goose Watch Winery began production in 1997 under the wings of the Peterson Family, owners of Swedish Hill Winery. With 120 acres of land overlooking Cayuga Lake, the Petersons have developed it into one of the most extraordinary wineries with a tasting room in a beautifully restored century old barn surrounded by vineyards, nut trees, gardens and breathtaking views.

Nestled within one of the region’s only commercial chestnut groves, Goose Watch has 21 acres of land dedicated to vineyards of six different grape varieties. With an emphasis on the unusual, the Petersons strive for and have succeeded in developing a selection of wine at Goose Watch that is uncommonly found in the Finger Lakes, such as Viognier, Pinot Grigio, Traminette, Melody, Diamond, Lemberger. The family continues to produce many innovative wines, with new releases frequently! The initial production at Goose Watch was 6,000 cases and has grown to reach over 15,000 annually.

The signature varietals and blends at Goose Watch have acquired numerous gold medals at numerous wine competitions including “Best Rose”, “Best Sparkling”, and “Best Dessert Wine” multiple years at the New York State Fair competitions. The wines continue to receive accolades in major national and international wine competitions. Click here to see a complete listing of Goose Watch awards and medals.

Goose Watch Winery expanded by opening a satellite tasting room in downtown Lake Placid. There visitors are able to not only experience Goose Watch Wines but also shop an assortment of gift items from home decor, to locally made food products, to fun wine related gifts!
