Situated on the slopes overlooking one of the deepest parts of Seneca Lake is Fox Run -- a winery with fifty acres of vineyards producing a remarkable range of fine wines. Under the dynamic, forward-looking leadership of Scott Osborn, Fox Run has become one of the truly great producers in the Finger Lakes region just south of Rochester, New York. Native grape varieties put the Finger Lakes on the map a century and half ago, and French-American hybrids, bred for cold resistance, still have an important niche in the region. But Osborn was convinced that non-hybrid European Vinifera grapes could yield wine excellent enough to put the Finger Lakes in the ranks of the world’s top fine wine producers. For more than a century Fox Run was a dairy farm. The first grapes were not planted until 1985, and the barn, erected shortly after the Civil War, was restored and converted to a winery and tasting room with a spectacular view of the lake in 1989. – Description from LeslieFRV

Fox Run Vineyards overlooks Seneca Lake in the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes, one of the world’s premier cool-climate wine regions. For more than a century, Fox Run was a dairy farm until being restored and opened as a winery in 1990. Today Fox Run is one of the most-visited wineries in the Finger Lakes. With fifty acres of vineyards, the winery was one of the region’s first artisanal wine producers, creating a remarkable range of limited-production, site-expressive estate wines. Owner Scott Osborn and winemaker Peter Bell and his team are changing the perception of Finger Lakes wines with startling Rieslings and cool-climate Chardonnays. Regularly recognized in national wine publications, Fox Run Vineyards was named one of the top 100 wineries in the world by Wine & Spirits Magazine in 2008, and has been a multiple gold medal winner at the Riesling du Monde competition in Strasbourg, France.
