Estate Bottled Wines
Every aspect of the production of these wines was under the control of Hunt Country Vineyards, from growing and pressing the grapes, to fermenting the juice, to aging, filtering and bottling of the wine.
The new vintage of our popular Cayuga perfectly expresses the clean, crisp flavors that this regional grape variety was bread to embody. Cayuga White is refreshing and lightly fruity with hints of peaches and a touch of sweetness. One of our most versatile wines, it pairs beautifully with salty hors d'oeuvres, as well as a wide variety of Asian and African cuisines.
A perfect everyday red wine, our Classic Red is reminiscent of Chianti: smooth, complex in fruit character, and lightly oaked. Great with pizza and other Italian dishes with red sauces, peppery beef dishes, and as a "magic ingredient" in hearty soups and stews.
Pride of our winemaker, our crisp, dry Finger Lakes Riesling exhibits golden delicious apple notes and a long, round finish. It pairs beautifully with a wide range of dishes that include crab, pork, and soft cheeses.
Our popular Hunter’s Red is a unique, non-traditional red wine with vibrant cherry and plum notes, deep garnet color, and a touch of sweetness. Aged 100% in stainless steel, Hunter's Red is smooth and easy. It goes great with barbecued meats and spicy vegetarian chile.
Our Late Harvest Vignoles is a seductively sweet after-dinner white wine in the Sauternes and Beerenauslese traditions that bursts with fresh citrus and exotic fruit flavors. Enjoy chilled with apple, pear or nut tarts, with bleu cheese, or all by itself.
Foxy Lady Red is made from delightfully sweet and always popular native Concord grapes. Discovered in the 1840s, this variety was so hardy and adaptable that it was planted everywhere; by the turn of the century, Concords made up 75% of the grapes in New York’s booming industry. Still appreciated for their intense fruitiness, Concords are the key ingredient in this sweet, fruity wine.
The beautiful balance and versatility of this Semi-Dry Riesling make it a perennial favorite of the Hunt family. This vintage is absolutely delightful. It exhibits apple and peach notes, a touch of sweetness and a clean finish that beautifully complements pork and poultry dishes.
Our marquee wine, Vidal Blanc Ice Wine is a rare and lusciously sweet after-dinner wine with rich honey, apricot and exotic fruit flavors. Genuine ice wines (picked completely frozen, pressed frozen, never thawed) are rare by their very nature. Even rarer is this opportunity to enjoy an aged ice wine. With time, genuine ice wines darken in color, with raisin and honey notes predominating.
Put your feet up after work or after dinner, sip our Ruby Port, and relax! A personal favorite of our Director of Winemaking Jonathan Hunt, this wine features vibrant berry notes and a long, smooth finish fortified with high-proof grape brandy. Enjoy a glass all by itself, or with chocolates, blue-veined cheeses or fine cigars. (Laws prohibit shipment of this wine to Maine, Montana and Vermont residents.)
We’ve been growing Vignoles since 1985 and it’s been a customer favorite for just as long. This luscious vintage bursts with citrus and exotic fruit flavors. Wonderfully delicious on its own or with spicy foods.
