COYOTE MOON VINEYARDS (town of Clayton)

Touring wineries in the north country is a must for those who want to sample a wide range of wines made from cold-hardy grapes, and Coyote Moon Vineyards on East Line Road arguably is among the most popular wineries in the region.

The winery, which opened a store earlier this year in Watertown’s Salmon Run Mall, draws a steady stream of visitors with special events and new products. It recently began selling sweet wines packaged in cans, for example, and it hosts two-hour scenic cruises of the Thousand Islands area from late June through mid-September.

The cruise, which leaves from Coyote Moon’s Wine and Craft Beer lounge at 6:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, showcases award-winning wines that customers have a chance to sample before they leave shore.
While on board, they’re able to bring a bottle of wine and munch on cheese and crackers provided by 1000 Islands River Rat Cheese, Clayton. Admission is $39.95.

The north country also is home to seven other wineries: Thousand Islands Winery, Alexandria Bay; Otter Creek Winery, Philadelphia; Venditti Vineyards, Theresa; Yellow Barn Winery, Hounsfield; Tug Hill Vineyard, Lowville; River Myst Winery, Ogdensburg, and Bella-Brooke Vineyard, Hammond.

For those who want to visit multiple wineries in one trip, a popular “North Country Wine Tour” is hosted on Sundays by Clarence Henry Coach, Watertown. That tour, which includes five winery stops, costs $69 per person.
“It’s a ton of fun and a great way to experience the north country winery by winery,” Mrs. Peck said of the tour, which the Watertown chamber recommends to visitors.
