Our vineyards were established in 1995, with a small planting of Riesling and Cayuga White grapes on the Fosterville Road site. In 1998 we added our first Chambourcin vines. Over the next several years more Riesling, Chambourcin and Pinot Noir were planted. In 2003 and 2004 we planted Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Riesling on a site on the southwest side of Owasco Lake. This gives us a total of three acres of vineyards. The small vineyards allow us to carefully tend the vines and harvest by hand, producing high quality wine grapes.
Grape Growing & Winemaking
We practice sustainable viticulture in our small estate vineyards, allowing us to harvest the grapes at their peak. Our old world minimalist winemaking style produces fine Finger Lakes wines for your enjoyment while minimizing our impact on the environment.
