  Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc has traditionally been blended with other red Bordeaux varieties, including its relative Cabernet Sauvignon. Produced as a varietal wine, Cabernet Franc displays rich bright fruit with medium body and toasty tannins. Look for aromas and flavors of ripe plums, blackberries and black currants in this vintage.
The pleasing floral bouquet and a bounty of ripe fruit flavors introduce you to this Catawba and Cayuga blend. Taste the fruit - strawberries, cherries, peaches - everything you could ask for in a blush. Serve this semi-sweet treat very cold or over ice.
  Cayuga White
Made from the regionally developed Cayuga White grape, this light and fruity wine features a floral nose enhanced by rich fruit flavors of apricot and pineapple.
Pretty aromas of pear, melon and toasty oak marry with lively acidity in this food-friendly wine.
  Dry Riesling
Bright citrus, peach, & mineral aromas show through on the palate and highlight this elegant crisp wine.
  Dry Rosé
The Dry Rosé is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay and Cayuga White grapes. Light and refreshing, with hints of strawberries, cherries and a judicious touch of barrel character from the oak aged Cabernet Franc. The crisp acidity balances the wine beautifully. Serve chilled.
  Estate Red
Soft and versatile, this blend, including DeChaunac and Cabernet Franc, has hints of vanilla and oak complementing bright berry tones. Formerly House Red.
  Fireside Red
Black cherry and cinnamon overtones make this sweeter style red taste like cherry pie. With no oak aging, this wine is wonderful when you are looking for a light and easy drinking red. Serve chilled.
  Pinot Gris
Rich and elegant pear mingles with clean mineral flavors in this varietal wine. This wine has no oak aging and is an excellent alternative to Chardonnay. Pinot Gris is sometimes known as Pinot Grigio.
  Pinot Noir
This medium-bodied wine is slightly spicy with aromas of cherries and smokey undertones.
  Raspberry Rhapsody
This wonderfully aromatic treat is made from semi-sweet white wine infused with locally grown sun-ripened red raspberries. Intensely flavorful with lively acid, it's delicious by itself, as an aperitif, with chocolate or as an interesting addition to your cooking.
  Raspberry Royale
Deliciously different! An intensely sweet and luscious fortified dessert wine made with an abundance of fresh red raspberries. Richly aromatic and intensely flavorful, it is perfect to sip after a special meal. Fabulous with dark chocolate desserts!
The aroma of peaches in this rich & luscious semi-dry wine gives way to more peaches, mangoes, & citrus in the mouth; finishes lively and long.
This fun alternative to traditional red wine, our Sangria bursts with lively citrus flavors and livens up any occasion. Tart lime, lemon and orange combine with a pleasantly sweet blended red wine for a convenient bottled version of this perennial favorite. For those who like to cook with wine, it makes an excellent addition to beef stews and chili.
is off dry wine is light and refreshing with delicate notes of citrus and apples. Excellent balance and a long clean finish make this wine perfect for all occasions.
  Sparkling Wine
Dry (Brut) Methode Champenoise, made from Cayuga White grapes bright fruit with tiny bubbles.
  Vintner's Reserve Riesling
The 2003 Vintner's Reserve Riesling is a blend produced from the finest fruit that our estate vineyards had to offer. We believe it to be the truest example of the 2003 season. A modest amount of residual sugar was retained to balance the crisp acid structure and enhance the palette. This wine is full of pleasing mineral, peach, and pear notes that follow through into the lush mouthfeel, and persist for the duration of the lingering finish.
