“No flavor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2012

We have visited many wineries in the finger lakes area of New York, this one seemed to have bland wines with little flavor.

“Breathtaking view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2012 via mobile

The wine here was very good, but the highlight was the breathtaking views of Cayuga Lake which can be enjoyed while tasting wines indoors or while drinking a glass on the patio or in the lawn. The Golden Spumante was outstanding!!!

“Not a great experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012

The tasting room was crowded so I'm giving the staff the benefit of the doubt. The server was not friendly or inviting, and the tasting counter was not croweded when we tasted, but a good crowd had just left. We each only tasted one type of wine - I don't know if there is a fee for more than that, but we were not told literally anything other than the description of the wine. We might as well of had a recording. The wine, I try, but I'm not a NYS wine fan so I won't comment on the wine. Needless to say, I didn't purchase anything.

“Try great wines & cheese for a few dollars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012

Try this - great selection of wines from the area - and suggest you also buy teh cheese they have here. For a few dollars you get a 'free' glass and are led through som every interesting wines. We like European style wines, and there were a good selection. Great fun, nice server, interesting as well.

“A fun afternoon while at a conference!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

In between an afternoon meeting and a business dinner, a friend & I stopped in for a tasting. We had an excellent time and came home with a new bottle of wine for the weekend!
