Tickle Your Taste Buds!

A warm welcome awaits you at Tickle Hill Winery! Located on the east side of Seneca Lake, we invite you to come relax and experience excellence while you sample our unique wines.

Tickle Hill Winery is a small family owned and operated winery in the Finger Lakes Region. As young adults both owners, Tim and Valerie worked in local vineyards. They loved it so much that they spent 25 years saving to pursue the life dream of owning their own vineyard and winery.

Tim & Valeries son, Chris is a top-notch winemaker! He was only 27 years old when the doors to Tickle Hill Winery opened and is still possibly the youngest winemaker in the region. He had the opportunity to attend Corning Community College to study winemaking and has also done an internship under two Master Wine Makers. It is no surprise that he is able to produce such delicious, and unique wines!
