“Great Pinot Noir!”
Reviewed 22 January 2013

Our experience at this winery didn't start out as well as we would have liked, as we ended up there on a day that there were busloads of organized wine tours attending. Aside from it being quite loud and rowdy, we were having a hard time finding a place at the tasting bar, and were asked by one older gentleman working behind the bar to please move out of his way. What saved the experience for us, was a nice young man (whose name I now can't remember).. he offered to have us sit out on the deck, and he would look after us. It was a bit cool to be doing that in November but we appreciated his attention. Once the room emptied out and we were able to move inside, we had a very nice conversation with him re the winery and the wines offered. We were looking for a wine to pair with our Christmas turkey and left with a wonderful Pinot Noir. Our suggestion to the owner/manager would be that if you are going to entertain groups on a Sunday afternoon, you might want to close the facility to the general public. I would rather find that out, than have a bad experience. We will definitely go back next time we are in the Finger Lakes.
