The Randazzo family of Coyote Moon Vineyards handcrafts each award-winning wine at their vineyard located in the heart of the Thousand Islands in Clayton, New York. At Coyote Moon Vineyards winemaking is not a passion it’s an obsession and it starts from the ground up. The family carefully pays attention to details; it is the little things that make award-winning wine and unique wine tasting experiences.

After four years of cultivating grapes, DeLuke launched Northern Flow Vineyards in May, complete with a tasting room and patio connected to the garden center. According to DeLuke, the new venture is a natural extension of decades of horticultural experience in the 1000 Islands.

The terrior at Deerlick Farm is the French definition of a perfect vineyard site with south sloping vineyards, limestone soil, and Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River to temper the northern climate. This unique site imparts a flavor in the grapes that creates a complex wine, something we like to call the ‘taste of the Cape’. Join us for wine tasting and tours!

Otter Creek Winery, named after the creek it overlooks, is one of Northern New York’s newest family farm wineries. Owned and operated by Kyle Hafemann, the youngest person to ever start a New York Farm Winery, opened in 2007 and currently produces over 7000 gallons of 13 different varieties of wine.

The winery is accessible by water, on Chaumont Bay, at the entrance to Sawmill Bay.  Sawmill leads to the harbor where there are two yacht clubs, the historic Crescent Yacht Club and the Chaumont Yacht Club.  The waters are renowned for fishing, sporting a worldwide reputation for catches of walleye, bass, muskellunge, perch, pike, lake trout, bullhead and salmon.

Thousand Islands Winery is your entertainment mecca for both local residents and visitors to the Thousand Islands region! The Winery features monthly family-friendly events that are affordable and open to the general public. These include comedy, live music, craft markets, painting activities, and much more!

Two people very much in love with each other got this crazy idea… Why don’t we learn how to make wine.  To sum up what could be a long story, after some blood, sweat, several swear words, and lots of tears, that my friends, is how Busted Grapes was born.
