Our closest neighbor just 2.1 miles north of the Manor on East Lake Rd. has a wonderful lake view and a really great selection of distinguished dry wines. The patriarch, Dr. Fred Zugibe's three sons were on disparate paths a decade ago, but soon discovered a collective interest in launching a passionate business venture together and have chosen to focus the grapes at the estate on dry and semi-dry varieties, particularly vinifera grapes. In addition, the winery boasts a Phoenician Bistro for the hungry wine taster who wants to sit overlooking the lake, sip a dry Gewurztraminer and enjoy a serving of grape leaves or Baba Ghanuj. Yale Manor enjoys partnering with this vineyard to host wedding parties and guests while the facilities at Zugibe host the day-of ceremonies. 

All around a great place to hang out if you find yourself in the area prior to our check-in time. They are also dog friendly at Zugibe's. (2.1 miles)

Ventosa is extremely friendly and they specialize in dry, old world-style wines (Cab Franc/Sauvignon, and pinot noir). We really enjoy everything about Ventosa - its accessibility, view, food, and Wednesday night music!! I love their Tacai Fiulano white Italian varietal in particular. (5.2 miles)

Head to Swedish Hill to meet the region’s most famous miniature donkey and the inspiration behind the winery’s most demanded wines, Jack Ass Red and Doobie Blues. Swedish Hill started in 1969 when the Peterson’s planted the family farm’s first vines to sell grapes to local wineries. In the 80s, the farm’s first grapes were crushed instead of sold, producing over 1,200 cases. Today, the winery annually produces 60,000 cases. In 1997, the family purchased its second winery, Goose Watch. (7.5 miles)

The triple entendre referenced in this fantastic micro-brewery is really named for the unfathomable depths of Seneca Lake (scientifically, it's total depth is still a mystery and there are large creatures down there as well as the secret submarine base located south of Yale Manor on a platform with monster lights that shine out a warning each night) as well as the endless micro-brewing taking place onsite (the third entendre is up to you to decipher!). This converted dairy barn is a wonder to behold with its upside down shiplike hull rising over 40 feet into it's pinnacle arch. Bottomless is a must-visit while you are wandering the Seneca Wine Trail for it's architecture, brew, view, live music and occasional food trucks to die for! Located just 4.7 miles north on E. Lake Road from Yale Manor and catty-corner to Ventosa Vineyards, it's right on your way. Be sure to stop and grab a growler. (4.7 miles)
