Frontenac Point Vineyard

Frontenac Point Vineyard Located on the west shore of Cayuga Lake on Route 89, just 12 miles north of Ithaca, the finest wine grape varieties are grown on slopes of low elevation. They are protected by a unique microclimate that is the result of the southernmost influence of Lake Ontario and the deep waters of Cayuga Lake. Because of the resulting long growing season, the grapes ripen perfectly to produce world-class wines for the consumer.

From the North: You can use exit 41 or 42 off the NYS Thruway; pick up Route 318 to Route 89 south. From the South: Take Route 81 from Binghamton, to the Whitney Point exit. Take Route 79 into Ithaca and pick up Route 89 north. From the South: through Trumansburg on Route 96 Take a right turn onto Seneca Road East (this is at the north end of the Trumansburg village). If you are coming from the north, on Route 96, the turn onto Seneca Road East is a left-hand turn just before you get into the Village of Trumansburg. At the stop sign (one mile) turn left onto Kingtown Road. Take Kingtown Road to the end where it intersects with Route 89. You will see the winery sign, "Frontenac Point Vineyard," on Route 89 as you come to the end of Kingtown Road.
