Gift ideas: For red wine enthusiasts, here is a delicious example of the classic red varietal of the Finger Lakes.
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.
Wild Mountain Man truly evokes the great out-of-doors, with wild berry and spice notes from Lemberger and hints of cherries and light pepper from Cabernet Franc. This limited edition wine, released only in favorable growing years, is not sold in stores.
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.
Our rich Epic Reserve, crafted from 100% Finger Lakes Cabernet Sauvignon, features ripe berry notes. 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, 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!
Crooked Lake Red is a smooth, off-dry red wine with rich plum and cherry flavors that dance in your mouth. A particularly low level of tannin in Crooked Lake Red make it a great "introductory" red wine for white wine drinkers looking to broaden their tastes!
Pairing ideas: Barbecued beef and pork; Mexican food; meats with other sweet & sour or spicy sauces
Serving ideas: Try to astonish your favorite white wine drinker with a taste of Crooked Lake Red!

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.
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.
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.
