I visited the Central New York region twice this year, spending time at different breweries and soaking up the mountain scenery and fresh air. My second visit was marked by several new brewery visits, but it also included a memorable sojourn to something different; an adult beverage producer that reigns supreme in this part of the country. I’m talking, of course, about wineries and one that I visited and liked very much was Owera Vineyards, located at 5276 E. Lake Road, Cazenovia, New York.
Owned by the Muserlian family, Owera Vineyards is a full- fledged wine production facility. The country business spans 57 acres and includes a farm, production facility, and tasting room along with plenty of meeting space for gatherings large and small. Weddings are a common occurrence, too, and they even have outdoor accommodations perfect for exchanging vows amongst the vines.
Owera Vineyards has its own restaurant and bar, serving food options such as pizza, lobster tail, cheese boards, steak, and other foods, many of which include wine recommendations. The wine is served at the bar and in the tasting room. They serve beer and cider also, just in case you’re not in the mood for wine.
