Bully Hill Vineyards

Bully Hill Vineyards Bully Hill Vineyards Inc. was owned by the late Walter Stephen Taylor. He was the 4th generation of his Family to be involved in grape growing and wine making. Because the family has been either growing grapes or making wine since 1878, it is The Oldest and most Famous Family Name to be continuously associated with Wine and grapes in America. Walter Stephen’s Taylor grandfather, Walter Taylor, at age 21 came to Hammondsport from Halsey Valley, near Owego, N.Y. He took over a vineyard on Bully Hill, from a man named Streeter; the Vineyard consisted of 7 acres of land and a little cabin, which were paid for in 3 years. Just down the road were the vineyards of George Chapman; he had a daughter named “Addie”. Walter Taylor had purchased a new 80 acre farm in 1880 just up the road ¼ mile from the Chapmans where he continued his wine making and grape growing. During this time Walter Taylor and Addie Chapman became man and wife and created five children; all of whom were born on Bully Hill. The children were: Fred C., Flora, Clarence W., Lucy, and Greyton H. Taylor.
