  • While the wines at this winery were decent, the customer service was highly offensive. My husband and I stopped for a tasting with our 3 month old daughter. Upon arrival, the staff member grabbed my daughters headband and pulled it off, questioning why we would put that on her. She then proceeded to ask me if I am breast feeding my daughter and when I replied no, she scoffed and roll her eyes. I have never felt so offended, especially when giving my business to an establishment. I am still in shock at the way we were treated and will absolutely not be returning.
  • Very friendly staff and excellent wines! Loved the rare varietal like Saperavi (red) and Chardonnay dessert wine. Highly recommended!
  • I tasted their three red wines, and their ice style wines produced by freezing the grapes and pressing them later in the year. Dani had a mix of dry whites and reds. The ice style wines are excellent, and as good as any real ice wines. Their Chardonnay Ice is perhaps the first bottle of Chardonnay I have purchased after a tasting! Dani bought a bottle of Gewurztraminer which was also excellent. The reds were good, but not as full body as we normally enjoy.
  • Charming and friendly. One of the first wineries we visited. Was not busy, as it was a weekend in February with no events. The staff taught us so much about the wines and area.
  • Standing Stone Vineyards is located on the east shore of Seneca in a very nice location. For the nice land, good sun exposure, and good quality of their neighbors' wines, they managed to butcher many of the region's mainstay varieties. Their strongest showings were their dry Vidal and Vidal ice wines. The tasting experience and offerings were clearly geared towards the less serious crowd. Nothing is wrong with that per se, but it would have been helpful to know ahead of time... The blue-haired (as in colored, not old) tasting attendant was painfully ignorant of the wines, generally loud, and insistent that the Standing Stone wine club was the best thing since sliced bread. We will not be returning.
