Thousand Islands Winery is the largest farm winery in northern New York State and is located along the majestic St. Lawrence River on an historic 40 acre farmstead established in 1836. The Winery began its operations in 2002 with the purchase of a farm by Steve and Erika Conaway. Thousand Islands Winery prides itself on being the leader of the emerging Thousand Islands – Seaway Wine Trail which includes 7 wineries and over 25 commercial vineyards. The primary grape varieties being planted in the Thousand Islands Region include Frontenac, Frontenac Gris, Marquette, and La Crescent which were developed by University of Minnesota. The development of these cold-hardy grapes is the very reason we now enjoy the benefits of the ever-expanding Northern New York grape region.
Thousand Islands Winery is open every day except Christmas from 10 am to 5 pm with extended hours from April to December and hosts 6 major on-site festivals featuring live music. The Winery’s expansive property offers many options for hosting weddings and special private events throughout the year and features on-site lodging in two beautiful 3-bedroom cottages. More cottages will be available in the near future.
