It’s February and the groundhog has us all in an uproar over his predictions.  So let’s just let him know that he isn’t slowing us down for nothin’

This weekend is the Seneca Lake Wine Trail’s ticketed event for several wineries and creameries.  We are paired up with Sunset View Creamery (www.sunsetviewcreamery.com)for Preferred Pairings on Saturday only. Tickets are still available.

March 27 – 29 is Cruisin’ the Tropics.  We are redoing our tasting room to become a tropical getaway, complete with the beach…Bring your sandals and play in the warm sand! Sand Castle competitions anyone?

She’s Headed South!!!!

Please join us in congratulating Linda Chambers, our beloved Tasting Room Manger, as she heads South for her retirement.

Details are forthcoming regarding the May Celebration, to be held here at the Winery, where we welcome all of our customers to come and bid her a fond farewell.

November 14, 2014

We hope to see you here for the Seneca Lake Wine Trail’s Annual Deck the Halls Celebration on November 21 – 23 and December 5 – 7.

While you’re here, be sure to check out our NEW RELEASES: MEDIUM-DRY RIESLING and CRANBERRY WINE.

One staff member shares her family’s favorite Holiday meal recipe: Use CRANBERRY WINE in your stuffing, and baste your turkey with it too! When you serve CRANBERRY WINE with your meal, it’ll be a hit!

We love our Grapehounds

This is Syd. Syd was adopted by Kime and Kevin Yost of Painted Post, NY through Monica’s Heart.

Cruisin’ The Tropics and FLIWC results

The results are in! This year medals were awarded to the following wines at the 2014 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition:

Congrats to the team!!

The 2014 Cruisin’ The Tropics weekend finished up with our own version of white beaches with an early spring snow and ice storm. Our warm weather friends did not let this stop them for one minute and brought lots of humor, grass skirts, flowered leis and pirates to sample the Caribbean Cuisine and Wine pairing.

We invite you to stop by Friday evenings from 5 – 6 to enjoy conversations with our staff, on the deck, overlooking beautiful Seneca Lake.  We talk about and sample our latest releases and share cheese platters from New York State cheese producers. Join Us through the warm months, weather permitting, of course.

Don’t forget that the Finger Lakes Wine Festival is July 12 – 13 at the Watkins Glen Speedway.  We have lots of surprises in store this year, including another booth location. Make your plans now for a great weekend of wine, food and music.
