Welcome to Our New Website!
The newly created Thousand Islands – Seaway Wine Trail which encompasses Jefferson County began its first season in 2005. “The Trail” consists of five wineries, one grape nursery, and nineteen vineyards. The wine trail begins near Westcott Beach and includes the Yellow Barn Winery outside of Sackets Harbor, Coyote Moon in Clayton, the Thousand Islands Winery outside of Alexandria Bay near the Thousand Islands Bridge and Otter Creek Winery in Philadelphia, New York. Each of the winery’s are located on historic farms and have their own vineyards.
Just off the trail in Lowville, New York in Lewis County is the Tug Hill Vineyards. Wine Trail guests are encouraged to take tours of each of the wineries and sample some of their locally produced wines. The wine trail is 78 miles long and meanders throughout many beautiful sections of Jefferson County and makes a terrific day trip from any of the area’s hotels. The trail is marked by green grape cluster signs. The trail uses NY Routes 3, 180, 12, 26, 11, and 342. The Thousand Islands – Seaway Wine Trail is planning to host many events throughout the year.
