When Joyce and I first started growing wine grapes in the 1970s, many viticultural experts stated that the Finger Lakes would never produce good reds. Well, it was a long process, with a good deal of help from Cornell University scientists, learning how to grow reds in the cool Finger Lakes climate. Our top 3 selling wines now are all reds!

Discover the magic of Alchemy, a dry red wine with black cherry notes, firm oak and hints of light pepper. Alchemy blends Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, all grown, vinified and bottled in New York. Enjoy a glass on its own or with a wide range of hearty meat dishes, rich cheeses, tomato-based Italian cuisine and other foods which you would naturally spice with pepper.
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.
Our very 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, great with barbecued meats or just on its own.
Just released! Put your feet up after work or after dinner, sip our Ruby Port, and relax! A personal favorite of our co-owner 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 and fine cigars. (Laws prohibit shipment of this wine to Maine, Montana and Vermont residents.)
Foxy Lady Red is delightfully sweet and bursts with the lively fresh-picked flavor of the native American Concord grape.
