BULLY HILL VINEYARDS - It's more than just a tasting room
Nestled in the hills overlooking beautiful Keuka Lake resides one of the most entertaining wineries in the Finger Lakes. More than just a tasting room, Bully Hill Vineyards is sprawled out over several acres, which makes for a great afternoon of fun!
The Bully Hill Restaurant
More than just your typical dining experience, the Bully Hill Restaurant features innovative cuisine with stunning views of Keuka Lake. Whether it’s seafood, pizza, smoked barbecue, freshly prepared salads, or seasonal specials, there is always something new and unique to try. We promise you’ll leave happy, well fed, and excited to come back for seconds!
The winery offers walking tours of the estate and winemaking facility daily during the summer months, (Memorial Day – Columbus Day). Tours depart from the tasting room at the top of every hour beginning at 11am and the last tour of the day departs at 4pm. Now remember this is a walking tour so anyone who has difficulty standing or walking for approximately 30 minutes should opt out, (we will gladly cover the material with those unable to participate).
Greyton H. Taylor Wine Museum & Replica Cooper Shop
Established by Bully Hill’s founder, Walter S. Taylor in 1972, the museum is home to an extensive collection of antique winemaking equipment, Prohibition memorabilia, and historic artifacts from the early NY wine industry. There’s even a collection of Presidential wine glasses dating back to Abraham Lincoln!
The Cooper Shop is a replica to some extent of the Hammondsport Cooperage Company 1875-1915. The building has an outstanding collection of Coopers tools, along with a 70-minute film of the art of barrel making. Memorabilia from the early days of the New York State wine industry may also be found.
Walter S. Taylor Art Gallery
After approximately 10 minutes the tour will then visit the Walter S. Taylor Art Gallery, (this is in the same building as the museum). Newly renovated, the Walter S. Taylor Art Gallery is filled with over 200 pieces of work from the brush of one of the most creative and provocative artists in the New York State wine industry. Many of the pieces on display will even be recognized as wine labels. There are smaller collections of Walter’s artwork in the tasting room and restaurant.
Souvenirs are a must when visiting a winery. Our gift shop certainly has more than corkscrews and t-shirts. With an eclectic selection of gifts, wine accessories, apparel, and home décor, chances are you’ll find something to take home.
Bully Hill Vineyards is more than just a tasting room. It’s a destination. A place where friends convene for an afternoon of fun, a place where your hunger cravings are demolished by lip-smackin’, mouth waterin’ BBQ, or simply a place where you love spending time, drinking great wine. Hope to see you soon!
