A selection of exciting varietals and blends introduced in the past 3 months.
Keuka Lake’s cool September evenings help our Chardonnay grapes capture even the most delicate fruit and mineral flavors. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, this Chardonnay naturally expresses the many beauties of the grape. Enjoy a glass on its own, or paired with white fish, shellfish and rich cheeses like Camembert. Serve chilled. Cheers!

Alchemy is the medieval predecessor to chemistry: a search to perfect certain substances and to create a magical ‘elixir of life.’ The closest thing we’ve found to a universal cure is a phenomenal wine and we hope you enjoy this one. Our Alchemy is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. This dry red wine has black cherry notes, firm oak and hints of pepper. Enjoy a glass on its own or with a wide variety of hearty meat dishes, rich cheeses, and tomato-based Italian cuisine.
Two classic French varietals come together to make this perfectly balanced, full-bodied wine. Our Cabernet Franc-Merlot is a selection of the finest barrels from two past harvest seasons. The bold, fruit-forward flavors of this blend pairs well with red meats, hearty soups, and sharp cheeses. Enjoy now or lay a few bottles down to age. Limited quantity available.
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.)
A personal favorite of owner Joyce Hunt, our 100% Finger Lakes Chardonnay exhibits delicate fruit flavors and soft vanilla and buttery notes imparted by eight months of oak aging and malolactic fermentation. Enjoy it chilled with cheeses, shellfish, chicken, and pasta with pesto, butter- or cream-based sauces.
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.
