  • The views are beautiful and staff friendly. In addition to wine tastings they also offer stickers and grape juice for the kids. They even had a $2 coupon good towards any bottle purchase.  more »
  • The view was lovely and the wine was ok. I wasn't overwhelmed with the customer service the day we visited, either.  more »
  • Very enjoyable and comfortable wine tasting experience. Very good and reasonably price wines, nice selection of dry and sweet varieties.  more »

  • We were very excited for this winery, because the setting looked great, beautiful buildings, beautiful view. Holiday shopping spree 2017: I understand that you are busy and by the time we got there at 3:30, you would see many people, but it really was very poor service. We tried to engage the girl pouring for us, and she was as if she was a robot, just giving us the one-liners for each wine and saying nothing else. She seemed bored with her job and annoyed that we were there, and that might have been okay if the wines have been good, but the wines were awful. It was our 7th Winery of the day, and you could taste the quality on the goose watch wines were not as high as some of the other wineries we have been too. We did not enjoy our stop here, and will not be returning. I recommend you go once to check it out, but if you are pressed for time there are better wineries out there.
  • I visited in late October 2017 for the Chestnut Festival. I expected the Chestnut Festival to be much larger and festive, but it wasn't. They had 2 long tables - one to sell wine and chestnuts, and the other was chestnut made dishes - a pumpkin chestnut cake/bread, and chestnut artichoke dip and a chestnut soup. All were pretty good, but because chestnuts have a very light mild flavor, I couldn't taste the chestnuts in any of the 3 dishes. They also had roasted chestnuts, which they microwaved and then roasted over a flying pan on a grill. The chestnuts weren't fully roasted, and they tasted raw. The lady roasting the chestnuts had never had chestnuts and didn't know what it was supposed to taste like. I purchased a bag of chestnut, and boiled it at home - out of laziness, and and they were very good. Back to the winery, the property is huge with tables and large grassy area around a pond to picnic or relax over a bottle/glass of wine. Because of the festival or maybe it was always busy, I'm not sure, inside the winery was packed. The wine tasting counter was packed, and a long line at the register to purchase wine and merchandise. While waiting in line, I noticed they have hard cider which was not advertised on their website, or I might have missed it. I picked up a few bottle of wines for gifts, and bottles of port wine, Two to Mango, and a case of graph juice. The Two to Mango is very sweet and it is delicious. The graph juice was good, but I like the grape juice at the Wagner Winery and Brewery much better. Wagner is about 17 miles South of Goose Watch. I didn't have all the bottles and case of graph juice with me when I was in line. It was impossible for me to collect them all by myself with 2 little dogs. The lady at the register couldn't help me until I collected all the bottles. Fortunately, another lady working there helped me collected what I wanted, and I had to remind the cashier that I am ready to check out after she helped several more people while I stood waiting. It could just be because they were so busy and she was focused on clearing up the line at the register. Overall, my experience was pretty good. I don't like crowds, and because it was so crowded, I left after I got my chestnuts and wine and graph juice. I am not sure if I will return to this winery. For those who enjoy a nice glass of wine and don't mind the crowds, it's a nice winery. The back fo the store has a long deck with seatings. It has a nice distance view of the Cayuga Lake. The winery is not on the lake, but it's close to the lake.
  • Staff was great and helpful. If you have to go number two, hold it. The privy is not in the main building and reminds me of a milk house in a dairy barn.
  • Bob's service and knowledge at the tasting was exceptional and the wines were very good. Pretty property and a definite stop on any Finger Lakes Wine Tour.
  • Waiting, waiting ,waiting during tasting. Only one person operating everything! Good grief!
