  • Nice experience. Good tasting with an interesting selection. Pleasant and knowledgeable server. Several purchases.  more »
  • We bought a white and 2 reds. So far the best NY wines we've tasted. And we're wine snobs. So the fact that we purchased wine is significant.  more »
  • Stopped in while on vacation after a neighbor highly recommended this winery. I don't remember the name of the woman at the counter but she was very friendly and willing to help find the perfect wine. After trying a few different options I couldn't walk away without purchasing their fantastic wine. I will definitely stop back in when my supply runs low.
  • We've been to several functions at Coyote Moon Vineyards both on County Route 3 and downtown along the river in Clayton. They do a phenomenal job. Even with huge crowds at the 2018 Easter Egg Hunt, our kids had a great time. The "Roaring '20s" wine club party was a blast. The wine is great, the staff is amazing, and the owners make you feel like you're part of the family!
