I've done a couple tours in the area and Billsboro winery feels unlike any of the others. It feels less industrial, touristy, or large scale. It feel like you're being welcomed into someone's home. The wines are some of the best i've had. 11/10 would...More

Billsboro is an amazing winery. They are a small, quaint winery (no buses or limos typically crowing this tasting room). Vinny, the winemaker, has a very distinct style, I'd say his wines are most similar to a French winemaker. Whites are crisp but balanced, minerality...More

Billsboro is building a great reputation for quality wines. Just tasted the 2015 reds and they are excellent. The Syrah will likely win some awards like its earlier brother. Tasting room is modest sized, but there is a very nice outdoor area. They do have...More

Very attractive tasting center in a remodeled 1800's barn and great wine. Also, the wine was a little more affordable than many in the area. Would highly recommend a visit. They focus on dryer red and white wines from grapes grown on their own land.More

Thank you for taking the time to give Billsboro a review. We appreciate it. One amendment I would make to your comments, while all our grapes are grown on Seneca Lake, they are not grown here on our property. We buy our grapes exclusively from...More

Prior to two weeks ago, the winery was considered pet friendly but had an incident and all dogs are to stay outside on patio which is quite acceptable. Wine was excellent and the service people knew their products. We bought a few wines and can't...More

Billsboro makes some nice wines and their tasting room has a great atmosphere. While I realize the days of free tastings and $8-$10 bottles of wine on the Finger Lakes are long gone (RIP Bill from Lakeshore), Billsboro's prices are pushing the limit. Once I...More
