Our very popular and refreshing Dry Rosé is a lovely wine to enjoy with lighter food at lunch and dinner, or all by itself. Beneath its light garnet hue is a complex blend of Lemberger, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The winemaking team used secondary (malolactic) fermentation to develop a beautiful soft texture that is uncommon in Dry Rosés. Stone fruit and hints of maraschino cherry shine on the palate. Try a nicely-chilled glass with a slice of wood-fired pizza, grilled ratatouille, cheese dishes, tandoori chicken, or salmon burgers. Perfect for your summer picnic or barbecue!
Available as a special release, this dessert wine is creamy and soft with luscious apricot and honey flavor. Enjoy as dessert, or with fresh fruit, cheesecake, or carrot cake. Limited quantity.
Cabernet Franc grapes grow happily in our cool Finger Lakes climate and glacial soil. This beautiful varietal is dry and smooth, with hints of cherries, soft tannins and a little light pepperiness in the finish.
Pairing ideas: Peppery or barbecued beef; lamb cooked in herbs; goat cheese quiche. Serve at cool room temperature.
Gift ideas: For red wine enthusiasts, here is a delicious example of the classic red varietal of the Finger Lakes.

We ferment and age our very dry Chardonnay in a blend of French and American oak barrels to impart a lovely toasted vanilla aroma and creamy finish to the delicate fruit notes of this wine. Chardonnay was one of the four original wines that inaugurated Keuka Spring Vineyards back in 1986, and remains a perennial favorite of our customers today.
Pairing ideas: Grilled salmon, risottos, pasta with white (cream- or cheese-based) sauces, steamed or grilled shellfish, spring vegetables. Serve chilled.

Serving ideas: Try to astonish your favorite white wine drinker with a taste of Crooked Lake Red!

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!
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.
Lemberger is an Austrian grape grown selectively in the Finger Lakes. This wine has an earthy nose with wonderful smooth black cherry and pomegranate tones. Fuller than a Pinot Noir, try our lemberger with pork loin, burgers, and steaks.
A rich, classic Merlot. Dry, smooth, soft, and mellow, with depth and black cherry and plum tones. Enjoy with pasta, red meat, chicken cacciatore, and steaks.
Miller’s Cove Red is one of our best-selling and favored wines. Dry, soft, deeply-hued and full-bodied, this blend based on classic Bordeaux varietals is a perfect accompaniment to your winter stew, chili, steak, lasagna, or lamb. Miller's Cove Red has received many Gold Medals and has been awarded Best in Show and Best New York State Red Wine three times.
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.
