“Good experience”
Reviewed 9 March 2013 via mobile

A group of 14 of us started our wine tour at Shade Mountain. They were very friendly and accommodating as well as knowledgeable. They have a lot of nice merchandise to purchase. The wines are yummy and the people are nice. Great place to visit.

“We love Shade......”
Reviewed 11 February 2013

We love visiting on a sunny summer afternoon and sitting on their huge deck which sits on top of a hill overlooking acres and acres of grape vineyards. It really is a gorgeous view from their deck and of course we have a bottle of their Prehistoric Peach sitting on the table in front of us. It is a great deal because they let you bring in a picnic basket of your own food to enjoy with the wine. We always make an afternoon of it with multiple bottles of wine! Shhhhhh, don’t tell anyone. We have to keep this place a secret!

Another cool thing about Shade is that they are part of the Wine Trail and so they have a bunch of events with live bands throughout the year. For example during the month of March they have bands playing in their large banquet room every weekend. It’s called March Madness. We’ll be there! Check their website under events for all of their happenings.

As far as their wines go they have a huge selection with very high quality. Their wines are on par with the best wineries of the Finger Lakes in NY State. We go to the wineries in NY a lot too but why drive 3 hours when you can get great wine with a view right here at Shade?

And customer service…….. let’s just say we are regulars so we are treated like royalty. You won’t hear any complaints from us. A special thanks goes out to Caroline, Amy and Jenny for making everyone feel welcome.

“The best wines in the Valley”
Reviewed 18 December 2012

I've visited many wineries in the entire country and Shade Mountain is exceptional. Great selection of wines with wine tasting any time of the day. Their Merlot and Cranberry Wine are my favorites. I visit everytime I come to the Valley and had the pleasure of being in the area during one of their Harvest Festivals. Awesome place to visit.

“Great views, nice tasting area with gift shop”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

Located on a fairly rural stretch of road atop a hill, has nice views of the vinyards surrounding the winery. Popular for catered events, has a baquet/meeting room with a small deck, and the main tasting room/gift shop. All sorts of gifts for the wine lover, a fairly wide variety of wines produced on site.

“Don't miss this winery.”
Reviewed 20 October 2012

Don't know what the previous reviewer meant by unwelcoming atmosphere. I've been coming here for 4 years now and everyone has been very friendly. In the past they had unlimited free tastings and I believe it was taken advantage of my some patrons. Other wineries in the area charge for tastings or have just a few kinds out for the tasting of the day. I drive 2 hours to get to Shade Mountain to get my favorite wine. (Can't tell you which one it is, they might sell out and then what would I do?) Prices are very reasonable compared to other wineries. They also sell local cheeses and grapes for planting.
