The Hunt family has been farming west of Branchport, NY, on Keuka Lake for seven generations and started the winery in 1981. Our 170-acre farm encompasses 43 acres of wine grapes. The varieties under our care include Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Seyval Blanc, and Vignoles. We are the oldest continuous producer of genuine ice wine in the United States. Our wines have been served at the United Nations, ordered by the White House, featured in Food & Wine and on NBC's Today Show. We have nearly eliminated our fossil fuel use for heating, cooling and electricity by installing award-winning geothermal and solar systems. Our goal is to farm and make wine in ways that ensure the health of our land, water, and air for future generations.

Hunt Country was a cool spot, and we enjoyed the wines there. Their store has some really cute gift items as well. A group of 6 came in while my husband and I started our tasting, and the woman who served us got really frazzled with that many people at one time... However, it didn’t ruin our experience. The woman... More

Because we like to visit a lot of different wineries, we do not get to Hunt Country as often as we should. We have probably been there 8-10 times in the past 20 years and always enjoy it. On our October 2016 visit we decided to try the wine and cheese pairings they were offering: four wines paired with specific... More

Thank you so much for being a long-time supporter of the winery! Very much appreciated. The 2015 Dry Riesling is one of our favorites. And, despite the bad rap that goat cheese has in general, the cheeses by Lively Run are always fantastic. More

All I can say is wow! Any winery can be ho-hum without good people running it. This was not ho-hum by any standard. The two ladies that were there when we stopped in on October 6th were so nice, so friendly and we loved them. They were retired school teachers and they made our visit perfect. We sat outside on...

My sister and I had a very enjoyable time wine tasting at Hunt Country on a Saturday afternoon. It was a busy afternoon with many limo busses and the staff was apologetic to those of us in small groups. The wine selection was plentiful and the wine is very good.

Really glad you enjoyed the Cream Sherry. We totally agree it's a wonderful end-of-day drink during the winter. Art has plenty of stories about falling asleep next to the woodstove while sipping some Cream Sherry after working a long day on the farm. More

On a rainy Sunday my friend and I decided to visit a few wineries. At lunch time we found ourselves at Hunt Country winery and after a tasting with an excellent pourer we were thrilled to notice their cafe.

So glad you enjoyed your lunch. Our chef, Mary Campbell, always does an amazing job turning seasonal variety into a tasty menu. Not all of our ingredients are organic, but we do source organic and local as much as possible. That zucchini in the quiche?

We, along with our friends, enjoyed the winery tour with Art, the owner of this fantastic winery. It was a very friendly, informative tour, with some history of the winery sprinkled in, along with interesting facts about the science of winemaking.
