Owner description: A combination of winery and restaurant located on the slopes of Cayuga Lake; the location plays a vital role in creating the best micro-climate for the Knapp vineyards. Knapp produces over thirty types of wine including cordials and aperitifs. Enjoy outstanding Rieslings, Cabernet Francs, Chardonnays and much more. Wines made to suit a variety of palates. The vineyard restaurant, which is open from April through October, opens to a vineyard patio that faces west with a spectacular view of our Saperavi vines. Chef creates food using as many local products to ensure a true Finger Lakes wine country experience.

We stopped by Monday morning on our way back home. The solar eclipse was on tap for later in the day. Well our tasting with Matt was so much fun! This young at heart gentleman artfully led us through the vineyard, while cracking us up frequently, with his expertise of the fine products of this amazing winery. His tips on pairings of flavors and wines made our visit noteworthy. So we had the opportunity to see the "star" of Knapp Winery before the moon covered the midday sun. By the way, we came home with a case of wine. Matt really did his job. Thank you , sir.

The regular lunch fare is complemented by some unusual appetizers, like the country pate (ham, pork, pickled onions, jam, olives, bread rounds). The butternut squash soup was scrumptious! And excellent vanilla bean cheesecake.
We sat outdoors on the patio and enjoyed the sunshine and cool breeze under the grape arbor.

Knapp Winery was one of 5 stops we did on a bachelorette wine tour. We did come with a group in a limo and had reservations. We were able to go right in and our whole group fit at one bar and had it to ourselves. We had two workers that were there attending to us. We were of mixed age and one of the ladies that was working was checking IDs. We had a woman that was 50 and had her ID out and the worker actually laughed at her and said without looking at her ID - "Really? No you're good." That was kind of rude in my opinion. You choose whether you want the dry or sweet for the whole flight. You don't pick and choose dry or sweet from the pairings. I found the girls not to be very engaging. They quickly tell you the wine, pour and repeat. We were out of there pretty quickly. The wine was ok. I liked Superstition. Not on a list of places I have to go back to. The tasting was $10 and then you got a ticket for $5 off a purchase of a bottle of wine.

We went to the Knapp Winery on the west side of Cayuga Lake, to pick up a few cases for an event and had to have a taste. The tasting room is a friendly place. You've got to love a place where a cat lounges on the counter. I tried the Pasta White, which I think is considered their table wine. It was a very pleasant, not too sweet, green apple citrus wine. I also tried the Brut because who doesn't like champagne? We couldn't stay long. We had to get back to the other side of the lake but we walked through the restaurant, which had a nice patio and was busy for a Wednesday afternoon.
