Loved this winery overlooking Seneca Lake! Bought a glass of the delicious Syrah wine after tasting six wines, and enjoyed it on the deck while taking in the views of their vineyards and the lake beyond them. Perfect spot to relax!

We tasted several wines and found 3 we loved. The wine was reasonable and the staff was very helpful. They directed us to a farm-table cafe a few minutes up the road. They also offer cheese and crackers and a beautiful view of the lake.

We stopped on 8 July because of the great location overlooking Seneca Lake. We enjoyed the wine tastings and liked the medium dry Riesling the best. Great to enjoy this good wine with the great view of the lake and vineyard.

We stopped here on the Seneca Lake wine trail. They have tastings available. Most of the wine was semi-sweet to sweet. My favorite was the Riesling. It was a beautiful day so we were able to get a glass and enjoy it on the deck....More
