I had tasted their cabernet sauvignon with dinner the night before at a local restaurant. We put them on our list of must-see wineries on our tour of the Finger Lakes. They were our last stop the following afternoon.
Since we had already tried (and loved) their Cabernet, we decided to try their Reserve Chardonnay (2008). We were not disappointed. We each purchased a glass of their wine and even though their little cafe had closed, I asked for a cheese and cracker tray and they happily obliged. We then headed outside to their deck, overlooking Seneca Lake. Though there's a little 2-lane road bisecting the land between the winery and the lake, it did not dimish the view or the experience. It was one of those warm, early-autumn afternoons where the temperatures were in the high 70's. We don't get too many of those in that part of the country and we were determined to savor the afternoon sunlight.
The grapes for this wine were sourced from the oldest vineyard on the property.
Fox Run Vineyard wines have limited distribution. They are sold through some restaurants and liquor stores throughout NY, FL, NJ and a few other east coast locations. If you are in the Finger Lakes region, I would recommend you put Fox Run on your list of must-see.
