At Rooster Hill Vineyards we set our sights high to grow the very best grapes to make the highest quality wines. We take special care in determining the processes we use to make our wines which have earned us high marks by publications including Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast. On our Savine Estate, 4,000 feet of drainage tile is installed to ensure grapes have the best possible conditions to develop their root structure. From these techniques, we can harvest quality grapes that balance between flavor, texture, acid and tannin structure. We truly believe wine is made in the vineyard before it enters our state-of-the-art fermentation process and then control aged in our superlative French and American oak barrels. Enjoy our wines in a variety of ways by visiting our vineyards for tours and tasting room experiences, through our exclusive wine club, at our several events or through purchase on our website. After your visit or first taste, we think you'll know how exquisite our wines are and why we savor, favor and honor them.

While Rooster Hill's wines are decent, especially their prosecco-style sparkling wine, the staff we encountered ruined our experience. The woman serving our tastings was very aggressive in her attempt to get our NY State friends to sign up for the wine club, to the point we suspected the staff works on commission. Because the rest of us were from Philadelphia,... More

As we stated in our reply to your friend's review on Google, Maggie, this is not the experience we try to foster here. This is surprising to hear. We love making wine and the folks that it brings to our area near Keuka Lake. If one of our staff said anything that made you feel less than welcome, I absolutely... More

Overall I was impressed with this winery. I stopped by with my mother, who is a club member with them. It has a wonderful view of Keuka Lake, and they've done a great job with making the exterior look nice. The tasting room is small, but I think they've done a good job with the decor. We weren't greeted when... More

Chardonnay is very good and there is a red blend with Cabernet Franc and Lemburger that had a smoky/bacon taste, which we loved. Nice ambiance and knowledgeable servers.

While my eyes were adjusting to the light, the first employee encountered was on the floor restocking the rack and she looked up at me as if to say what are you looking at me for? No greeting, no "someone will be right with you" and I was afraid if my bf saw this he would turn and leave because... More

Wines are really good, and love their little gift shop! Our kitchen is decorated in chickens so we bought a bunch of stuff last time, this time the rooster decor was a little lacking. But the wine is worth a stop!

What a deal! $5.00 for five samplings and keep the glass. Our presenter was very helpful and went out of her way to keep us entertained. I found out I like wine way more than I ever thought I would.

Great wine selections; very informative and helpful. Nice touch is they give extra tastings if you pair together. They also give free glasses. We bought their semi-dry reisling.

Rooster Hill had an excellent selection of mostly dry wines, which the hubs and I greatly appreciated. Their cider was delicious, as was their dry sparkling white wine. They were also the only winery we visited to include a glass with our tasting (and the glasses were VERY nice). My only comment would be that they were very quick to... More
