Knapp Vineyard Restaurant Menu


Knapp Winery and Vineyard Restaurant has opened for the 2016 Season.  Located on the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, on Ernsberger Road, three-quarter miles from the lake, this full service restaurant will be open from 11AM to 5PM daily until the end of November.  John McNabb, Executive Chef has created a menu that largely comes from local farms and businesses.  “I have immersed myself in creating my menu components from scratch and using as many local ingredients to capture the flavors of the Finger Lakes”, says McNabb.

Inspired by flavor and being able to create a product from scratch, Chef McNabb has also composed a symphony of delicious homemade items that are rooted in many of his entrees.  Experience the freshly made country paté as part of the assortment of appetizers.   Vegetarian options are plentiful  and a large assortment of delightful sides and veggies. All in all, it is fair to say that Knapp’s Vineyard Restaurant offers a flavorful and umami (savory) rich menu for the 2016 season. 

The Vineyard Restaurant is set next to the Tasting Room and offers patio seating when the weather allows.  Below is our 2016 Spring Menu.  Join us for lunch after a delicious wine tasting in our tasting room.  Perfect way to spend a day in the Finger Lakes.
