New Wine Releases
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 beatifully balanced and elegant genuine ice wine, with delicate fruit and floral notes. Just 78 cases produced, bottles individually numbered.

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.
Gold medal, 2019 Florida International Wine Competition
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.
Our 2017 vintage was awarded the 2018 Governor's Cup for Best Wine in New York from among 800 entries. That vintage is sold out. We are awaiting competition results for this new 2018 vintage.
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 Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Lemberger. 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!
