What is new at the winery
We are proud to announce that our 2007 Viognier Reserve received a Silver Medal at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition. This wine exhibits a deep golden color and exquisite bouquet that is characterized by orange blossoms and honeysuckle. Its flavor profile is rich and full bodied with hints of pears, peaches and exotic apricot. It is a wonderful addition to any summer gathering and a delightful substitute for Chardonnay. A wonderful accompaniment to grilled seafood and lobster.
