Thousand Islands Winery

Thousand Islands Winery The Thousand Islands Winery is located in Jefferson County, New York. It is the most northern winery in New York State. The winery is situated on a farm that was built in 1836. The farm was later owned and operated by Captain Massey, and his wife Ida. Captain Massey was a famous Riverboat Captain in the 1930's, who owned and operated a huge Great Lakes Vessel that he eventually sold to the Department of Defense for the war effort during World War II. Steve and Erika Conaway purchased the farm in December 2002. Upon Steve's retirement from the military, they decided to create a winery in Alexandria Bay. The Conaways hope you enjoy their wines and the Saint Lawrence River Valley as much as they do. The Massey legacy of quality lives on today. Although the horses and cattle are no longer a part of the farm, agriculture continues in the form of Viticulture. We believe that our wines are second to none. Please stop by and experience the hospitality of our staff and taste our wines.

If you like eating grapes, you'll love this wine. It is like drinking spiked grape juice with a kick. It has an intense red grape and mayberry aroma and is a pleasure to drink on any occasion. Awesome with venison.
Back and better than ever! This German style wine is full bodied and smooth. It goes well with chicken, pork and fish. it is very fruity. A delightful,refreshing drink on a hot summer day. Serve chilled.
  Saint Lawrence Red
This red wine is a blend of carefully selected grapes. It is a light style red wine. It compliments grilled chicken,fish and vegetables. We had the fisherman in mind.
The grapes were harvested late in the season and had high concentrations of natural sugars. We believe that Vignoles were the finest grapes in New York. The wine is light and crisp and goes well with fried foods, chicken,pork and fish. It is very fruity and delightful.

This wine has a pronounced fruity aroma and is refreshing with apricot flavors, Excellent choice for a dinner wine. It is a premium blend of Catabwa, Diamond and Delaware grapes. Recommmended to be served chilled.
