Eat and Drink With Us

The Copper Oven’s specialty is wood fired pizza. Our menu rotates monthly and relies on home grown and locally sourced ingredients. Our promise to you is good food and drink in a rustic, friendly environment.

Oven Sign

The core of our 6,000 pound Le Panyol oven is made up of “Terre Blanche” (White Earth), a kaolinic clay that has been specially harvested in France since 1840 for the many special properties that make it ideal for wood fired cooking.

Born from a quarry amidst the vineyards of Crozes-Hermitage on the edge of Provence, The Copper Oven now lives at Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery which is located on the Cayuga Wine Trail West in Ovid, New York.
