Welcome to CJS Vineyards.
We are approaching harvest at our vineyards; it will be a small crop this year due to the extreme cold winter damage. Plan a visit to our vineyard and winery to see winemaking in process during late September and early October. 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.
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”.
