In the 1980s, several prominent experts declared that the Finger Lakes terroir (our soil, climate, terrain and other factors) would never produce a good red wine. Well, let's call it the 30-year overnight success! Here we are, with a variety of reds that we think you'll enjoy.
Our approach at Keuka Spring has been to adapt our growing and winemaking processes to be harmonious with the natural proclivities of our red grape varieties. Several years ago we shifted our fermentation of our red wines from oak barrels to tanks. The results are reds with softer tannins and a rounder mouthfeel that we believe beautifully balance the wines' natural fruit aromas and flavors. We're delighted that our customers have embraced this change!
Blaufränkisch, also known as Lemberger, is an Austrian grape grown selectively in the Finger Lakes. This dry red wine has an earthy nose with wonderful smooth black cherry and pomegranate tones. Fuller than a Pinot Noir, try our Blaufränkisch with pork loin, burgers, and steaks.
STOP PRESS: Our 2021 Blaufränkisch was awarded Best Red Wine in New York State at the 2023 NY Wine Classic.

Our exotic Saperavi is dark, rich and alluring. The Saperavi grape originated in the Eastern European country of Georgia. Deep in color, with bright berry and spice notes, medium body and soft tannins, it particularly complements beef and lamb dishes, and tarter cheeses like chèvre.
