We are honored to have received a number of prestigious awards over the years, but our greatest satisfaction comes from your ongoing enjoyment of our wines, and we very much appreciate your recommendations of Keuka Spring to friends and family.
A delectable, "off-dry", refreshing Riesling with wonderful fruit. White peach, apple, and gentle floral character lead to a soft finish. A premium example of Finger Lakes Riesling. Enjoy it with grilled checken, salmon, crab, cream soups gouda or cheddar cheese, Caesar salads, or just about anything!
Epic Reserve is a rich blend of Finger Lakes Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. While fermenting, we "rack and return" the wines -- called délestage in French -- to increase oxygenation and improve extraction of color, flavor and tannin. The result is a wine of distinction and depth with ripe berry notes that pairs beautifully with juicy meats like steaks, pork roasts or chops, pasta with white or red sauces, and other hearty dishes. Serve at cool room temperature (60-65 F). Bring a bottle to dinner with friends!

This beautiful and distinctive wine is true to its name: gewürz means spiced or perfumed in German. Floral on the nose, rich fruit notes on the palate, long, clean and soft on the finish. Enjoy this exceptional wine as an apéritif with dried fruits and cheeses, paired with curries, or with spicy sausages and sauerkraut.

A classic dry Riesling, with delicate hints of apple blossoms. Our driest Riesling, well-received in Europe and at tastings. Humphreys Vineyard, located on Seneca Lake, is meticulously managed by Harry Humphreys. Its unique east-west orientation creates clean and delicious fruit and consistently balanced and intense Rieslings. This wine would be nice with roasted poultry (chicken, Cornish hens) or broiled fish.
93 pts., Robert Parker. The delicate skins of Riesling grapes make authentic Riesling ice wine very rare. In late December 2017, with the mercury at about 14 degrees F, we were able to hand-harvest a very small lot of perfectly frozen Riesling grapes at our friend Harry Humphreys’ vineyard on Seneca Lake. The lovely and rare result is this beautifully balanced and elegant genuine ice wine, with delicate fruit and floral notes. Just 78 cases produced, bottles individually numbered.
Aromas and flavors of peach and apricot leap to the senses with our luscious Semi Sweet Riesling. Abundant natural tartness beautifully balances the sweetness of the finish.
Pairing ideas: Pork tenderloin, ham and turkey with their traditional pineapple, apple and cranberry condiments.
A blend of 65% Seyval Blanc, a wonderfully dry, crisp and fruity wine, and 35% Chardonnay, which brings body and smoothness. This vintage highlights tropical fruit and guava on the nose, which lead to full fruit character with a crisp finish.
92 pts., Robert Parker. This, our first Vidal Blanc Ice Wine, is lusciously sweet with soft fruit flavor, a round mid-palate and long, satisfying finish. The grapes were hand-harvested at 12-17 degrees F while frozen solid (the grapes and us, too) and pressed frozen to yield a tiny amount of sweet nectar. We ferment that concentrated juice with special yeast to convert about half the natural sugar to alcohol, leaving the other half to balance the wine's natural tartness. This lovely ice wine, made the authentic way, is available for a limited time at a special introductory price of $29.99.
Fresh, new vintage! A nose of passion fruit and orange blossom opens to a wine graced with aromas of juicy yellow plum and lemon peel. Dried apricot finish. Savor the bouquet by swirling and smelling before tasting. Sip this semi-sweet wine chilled, with lemon-roasted chicken or artichokes French, or with appetizers such as hummus and pita, or with fresh vegetables and dip.
