The vineyards are growing, we've seen some shoot growth but did experience some frost damage last week. Stop in and taste our wonderful estate Rieslings that go great with your spring / summer dinners, picnics and outings! We are also tasting our estate dry reds: 2010 Pinot Noir, 2010 Odyssey Red and newly released 2010 Chambourcin. They pair up very well with grilled summer foods. If you like it a little sweet, the latest vintage of Fosterville Red is now available. Visit our tasting room on Fosterville Road, it will be a fantastic Finger Lakes winery visit!
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 estate: Riesling, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Chambourcin. Our wines compliment a wide variety of
cuisines, “a wine for every meal”.
