We've visited wineries including most on the Cayuga, Seneca, Keuka, and Thousand Island Trails. For some reason (probably because it always seemed too "commercial") we had never stopped at Three Brothers. We scored a day off on New Year's Eve and looked up the hours and decided we'd give it a try. We arrived on at the property about 1:15 pm in a FRIGID blowing windchill off the lake. The parking lot was icy and so was the walkway. We had no idea where we were supposed to go and finally saw a wooden arrow sign pointing towards the building to our left. There was a sign telling you to go inside and purchase a passport (which didn't state a dollar amount but instead said the fee for the passport varied by season). Apparently, it must vary so much that they can't post the price. We decided it was the season of freezing your ears off in the wind so we hurried inside. We found a tasting room with the bar to the left, a cash register to the right of the door with a counter. A fire (gas log) was warming the room to the right with another room just beyond the fireplace. No one was there to greet you. There was a one person behind the tasting counter which was full of tasters. We looked around and stood there for maybe 10 minutes. No one came to sell you a passport or tell you where to go or if we were in the right place. To this moment, I'm still not sure how you taste at this place or what is up with all the buildings. For us, we'll stick to more intimate wineries where owners or workers greet you, talk to you, explain the wines, the bottle choices, the label choices and so much more to you. It appeared this was a one stop shop for the people that like to load up on tasting samples and really don't want info or knowledge from the experience. If you are looking for one stop, commercial foo foo then this is probably your place. If you are looking for someone to care and talk to you with their love for the business and not the love of your money, maybe not so much. We, needless to say, left and traveled on down the road to places we love and enjoy. I doubt we will ever come back.
