Lake Zurich local...

http://www.kuemin-weine.ch/home.html this is in Freinbach, SZ, you can visit them direct and they will let you try the wine before you buy. They also supply good bottles from Quinten, though pricey at 28 CHF and up, but good. I think they are making Pinots in Quinten.

You can visit them direct as well, and make a day trip out of it, as the only way to access them is by boat as there are no cars, and only tractor roads there. Access is from Murg, by ferry boat.

They have a good selection of Zurichsee wines here...

At Halbsinsel Au, where they are also making wine, there is a wine museum, that also gives tours and wine degustation tastings. At the restaurant you can try their wines by the glass. And they are doing some interesting blending combinations there, because their vineyards are run by the Hochschule in Wadenswil. If you visit the Hochschule you can buy these wines by the bottle.
Halbinsel Au can be reached by the big boat in the summer, or at the Au trainstation, S8, any time of the year. It's a beautiful park for walking, and swimming when it gets warm.

There are other vineyards worth making days trips like the ones on Ufenau and the small one at the castle in Rapperswil, but I am too tired to explain more tonight.

If you want to expand out from there, there are some decent wines from Weinigen to Baden. But Swiss wines are typically soft, with their Pinots excelling and whites in the French part.
The Walensee is FARTHER away than Andelfingen, and not nearer than Stein am Rhein !

French part ? Stein am Rhein, Schaffhausen-Mainland, Zürcher-Weinland and the eastern shores of the Lake of Zürich excel with good white wines.
