2016 Hunt Country Wine List
From classic dry vinifera wines, such as Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay and Riesling, to distinctive varietals like Seyval Blanc and Vignoles, innovative blends like Hunter's Red and our renowned Vidal Blanc Ice Wine, our goal is your enjoyment of a handcrafted wine of excellent value that captures the unique character of the Finger Lakes and our sixth generation family farm.
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.
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.
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 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.
Fermented in the bottle, this fine Brut-style Champagne, produced from 100% Chardonnay grapes, makes any occasion a special event.
Owing to various states' regulations, we can only ship this wine to: AK (call us), CA, DC, FL, IN, LA, MN, NH, NM, NV, NY, NC, ND, OR, TN, WV, WI, and WY.
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.
Relax after a long day's work with a glass of our Cream Sherry, a delicious blended wine with hints of raisins, nuts and caramel, and fortified with 190-proof grape brandy. Enjoy a glass by itself, with sharp cheeses and desserts, or as an ingredient in soups, stews and sauces. Serve at cool room temperature or lightly chilled. (Maine, Montana and Vermont laws prohibit us from shipping this wine to their residents.)
This semi-sweet white wine has a natural effervescence, lush fruit flavors, and a heady bouquet of orange blossoms. It is wonderful as an aperitif or paired with spicy dishes.
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.
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.
