What's with the name TYCOGA?


Our winery is named after our three children: Tyler, Courtney & Gabe.

History


We are a family owned business that began in 2010 with only 50 plants. TYCOGA Vineyard was established in April of 2013. Our initial intent was to only grow grapes & to sell them. One day, a now dear friend & his wife, stopped by and gave their phone number to our son, Tyler. John & Karen told Tyler looks like you might need some help-we had NO idea who these folks were, Ben did call them and after long talks and learning about grapes, our 1st plants produced a small crop. John told Ben these are wonderful grapes-you need to make wine instead of just selling the grapes. We ended up planting many, many more grape plants. We now have over 26 acres of plants. TYCOGA Vineyard & Winery was then established in 2014. We opened the TYCOGA tasting room on December 20, 2014. The final construction was completed in April 2015. We now have over 20 different types of wines from Dry to Sweet. Our wide variety of mainly ESTATE produced wines allows us to showcase wines to both the novice and the experienced wine drinker. TYCOGA Vineyard & Winery entered the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition in March 2015 and out of the 9 varieties of wines entered won 8 awards. We are very excited for the future and what TYCOGA has to offer. We enjoy meeting every person and sharing our story. Come in as Strangers & Leave as Friends!!
