Lucas Vineyards

Lucas Vineyards Cayuga Lake's oldest winery has more to offer than world class wines and a magnificent view of Cayuga Lake. Colorful bottles, spectacular labels, and the nautical theme "Wine if by Land-Tug if by Sea" wines have intrigued wine writers, connoisseurs, and travelers for more than two decades. Lucas Vineyards' nautical wines are inspired by one of the Founder's occupations as a Tug Boat Captain in the waters of New York Harbor-the home of the Lucas family before moving to the Finger Lakes in the early 1970's. As pioneers in the boutique New York wine industry, the Lucas' nautical wines- Tug Boat Red, Tug Boat White, Dry Dock, Blues and Captain's Belle- kept the winery afloat in the early days. A lot has changed since then. Currently, Owner and Winemaker Ruth Lucas releases medal-winning Methodé Champenoise Champagnes, traditional European varieties including Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir, as well as French American varietals in addition to the seven nautical wines. The Lucas Family and staff host over 40,000 visitors annually in their stylish tasting room that has a "WOW" view of Cayuga Lake. Making the facility complete is one of the most unique gift shops in the Finger Lakes Wine industry. The gift shop is home to hundreds of grape and nautical goodies including great t-shirts, stunning stained glass, wineracks, glassware and wine accessories.
