Welcome from the Winemaker

CJS Vineyard & Aurelius WIneryWelcome to CJS Vineyards.

Harvest at our vineyards has come and gone, it was a small crop this year due to the extreme cold winter damage in January 2014. Fortunately we have many great wines available from 2010., 2011, 2012, and 2013. Stop in and taste some; great wines and a wonderful Finger Lakes wine experience!

This is our second decade in the Finger Lakes wine community as producers of quality wines. Our wonderful trio of estate Rieslings: dry, semi-dry and semi-sweet, are great food wines for all your special meals! We are also have estate dry reds: 2010 Odyssey Red, 2011 Pinot Noir and the silky smooth 2011 Cab Franc. These reds pair up very well with grilled foods. For seafood try our "Villagio Blanco", perfect with oysters and shellfish. If you like it a little sweeter, our Winter Rose Blush and Fosterville Red are now available. Call, email or text for any wine requirements.

My journey with wine began in the 1950’s as a boy helping his uncle make wine in the cellar of his home in New York City. I remember the grapes, the press, the barrels, the aroma and the wine. In our family wine was part of the evening meal, everyday wines to enjoy with food. Fifty years later I still take pleasure in making handcrafted wines for our everyday enjoyment. Using grapes from our estate vineyards we make crisp, clean, exciting wines in dry and semi-dry styles and specialize in: Riesling, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Chambourcin. Our wines compliment a wide variety of cuisines, “a wine for every meal”.
