  • An estate occupying a beautiful spot on Seneca Lake. Their attractive and well-appointed facility is unfortunately at odds with the portfolio of wines, which were of uniformly low quality. Wines lacked the necessary nuance, structure, and overall sound winemaking to carry the high amount of sugar present in almost all bottlings. This is not an estate that we can recommend or will revisit.
  • My husband and I went to The Finger Lakes for our honeymoon and went to over fifteen different wineries. I would say overall this was my favorite as far as wine goes. They have a nice range from dry to sweet. It's also a nice facility and has a great balcony and view of the lake.
  • Your experience will depend on what you expect from this winery. If you expect soon to be made classic wines you'd be disappointed to no end. If you only expect to have good table wines on the sweet side that would be right where their wines in my opinion would land. We actually came to visit with no expectations whatsoever as we usually explore wineries outside of our must visit list during every trip we take to the Finger Lakes. We stopped in to taste some of their Rieslings and I can only say that the Dry versions were disappointing but the late harvest versions were on par with some of the better ones we've tasted over the years. That's why we only bought 4 bottles instead of a full case. One thing to note of this is that it is very difficult to find a good pairing for the late harvest Riesling of any kind and this one is no exception.
  • Wines are ok. A bit too expensive to me. Staff was ok, just felt a bit rushed through and didn't take the time to talk about each wine like many of the other wineries do.
  • Great place staff and wine is the best. Awsum reisling just came out
