Hobbit Hollow Vineyard is located on the west side of Skaneateles Lake, directly on the lakeshore. At Hobbit Hollow, owner Mike Falcone and vineyard manager Chris Fluri have created a perfect environment for Pinot Noir – a notoriously finicky grape. It is only with the proper care and devotion in the vineyard that Pinot Noir can evolve into a beautiful wine, and Chris is the perfect steward for this grape. His meticulous attention to detail ensures that the fruit is in pristine condition at harvest each and every year.
The high elevation means slightly cooler summer temperatures, and our Pinot Noirs from this site typically show bright cherry notes, complex earthiness and balanced acidity while our Rieslings tend to show hints of crushed slate, a crisp lime zest, and racy acidity.
