Heart & Hands Wine Company is located in a serene setting overlooking the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake. We are committed to producing cool-climate wines which authentically express the unique character of the Finger Lakes. Our production is quite small - currently under 1500 cases, which allows for an intense focus on quality. Our intent is to produce food-friendly wines, and we offer several wines crafted from Pinot Noir and Riesling grapes for your enjoyment.

By far one of the best winery that I have been to among the ones around Cayuga Lakes. There is a nice tasting room with a warm environment. In terms of wines, they strike a good balance among fruit note, body and the sweetness in Riesling. Also highly recommend their Pinot Noir and Blanc de Noirs.

We chose to visit Heart & Hands during our recent Finger Lakes trip because my husband saw a write-up in a national publication. The small tasting room was busy but we were able to jump right in and were treated to a very knowledgable "tour" of four wines. We had a nice chat with the staff and ended up taking... More

A visit to Heart and Hands is always the highlight of our visits to the Finger Lakes. The wines are outstanding and the tasting experience is the best in the region. The education and personal attention makes every visit special. Tom and Susan have worked hard to make and present wines that are truly unique.

Visited the Finger Lakes and dared to try several wineries. After years of occasionally tasting NJ and PA wines I was stunned at the quality in the Finger Lakes and Heart and Hands was second to none. The wines are not cheap but the care and high quality standards are evident to anyone who knows wine. Wonderful Rieslings and good... More

Very disappointed. We just left because their were two people that didn't even acknowledge us after 10 minutes. Yes, it was busy, but they noticed us and ignored us. We were hoping to buy a case of wine and sample some really delicious wines. Will not be back.

These folks really put their hearts into these hand crafted wines. From hand picking and sorting the grapes to hand blending the juice to form the perfect wine. This is a serious wine lover's winery, so no soda pop wines here. But if you like rich velvety Pinot Noir and bright crisp Riesling you need to go here now! But... More

Its a long trip around Cayuga Lake, but the wines do reflect the care with which they are made. I am not a fan of Finger Lakes style pinot but do love the Riesling and they have very good Riesling.
