Great wine with great views! Pretty busy when we were there for only one staff member on main floor. Nice that they have room up stairs for larger groups. The balcony is gorgeous and a great place to enjoy and glass or bottle of wine.

Pretty view of the lake and helpful staff. We enjoyed several of their wines and almost bought some but didn't. We'd go back.

A cold, windy, and wet day prevented many from missing really tasty Chestnut soup, spinach/chestnut dip and chestnut dessert, not to say anything about the warm mulled wine. In the tasting room we found a wide selection of wines with 6 tastes for $5. We left with three different wines tasted.

The location and setting of Goose Watch is worth the visit. However, the wines were not our favorite - not bad just not our thing. Take time to go on the back porch and soak in the greenery and view of the lake.

While we realize that not everyone likes the same wines, we would like to point out that of our current wines available for tasting, we have 3 dry whites with 90+ point scores, our dry Rose won “Best of Show” Rose wine at the...

On a day devoted to checking out a few Finger Lakes Wineries, planning is important. There are 'events' that draw crowds... Lots of fun, lots of people and lots of energy... We chose to visit Goose Watch the day before their big event... And that made all the difference! We got to understand the varieties they offered... We got perspective.... More

Small vineyard with great wines and a beautiful view. The tasting was relaxed and welcoming. The rosé was delicious.

We tasted six wines for $5 with a coupon off on anything we bought. The young man pouring our samples was knowledgeable and thorough. Although the bar was full of people, he was efficient and quick. There is a wrap around deck that overlooks Cayuga Lake. Just beautiful!

Stopped here during our recent visit to the area. We decided on a wine tasting tour around the lake and Goose Watch was one of our stops. Very nice atmosphere and scenic grounds. Our only complaint was that the tasting staff here was not as friendly as some of the other stops that we made. The were also a little... More
