Distilleries & Wineries

Perfect distilleries & wineries near you

Buffalo is recapturing its legacy as a boomtown for booze. Small batch distillers are popping up all over town, ready to serve you our finest local libations.


Buffalo is bookended by a pair of wine trails, thanks to the ideal microclimates and soil conditions that exist along Lake Erie, the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario.


To the south, you’ll find the Lake Erie Wine Country, which is the largest grape growing region east of the Rockies. To the north, it’s the Niagara Wine Trail, which has developed a reputation for producing world-class wines. If you savor every sip of Chardonnay or perk up at the sight of a glass of Pinot, then the itinerary below will help you navigate your purple-lipped pursuit of vino in Buffalo.
