The Hunt family has been farming west of Branchport, NY, on Keuka Lake for seven generations and started the winery in 1981.
Our 170-acre farm encompasses 43 acres of wine grapes. The varieties under our care include Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Seyval Blanc, Valvin Muscat and Vignoles. We are the oldest continuous producer of genuine ice wine in the United States. Our wines have been served at the United Nations, ordered by the White House, featured in Food & Wine and on NBC’s Today Show. Hunt Country Vineyards has garnered 20 major awards (Gold medals or higher) in prestigious competitions since 2011.
We have nearly eliminated our fossil fuel use for heating, cooling and electricity by installing award-winning geothermal and solar systems. Our goal is to farm and make wine in ways that ensure the health of our land, water, and air for future generations.
