Where It Begins
We believe that great wine begins in the vineyard. A vineyard’s geology, soil, and microclimate lay the foundation for the vines. Thoughtful selections and plantings of rootstock and vines harness the potential of the land. Sustainable farming and viticultural practices nurture the vines and produce exceptional fruit for winemaking.
Our estate vineyard is located on an ideal site on the Onondaga limestone escarpment, on a gentle slope in near proximity to Cayuga Lake. The vineyard is sustainably farmed without the use of insecticides or herbicides.
We also partner with several other like-minded winegrowers on Seneca, Cayuga, and Skaneateles lake. Our grower partners have deep knowledge of their terroir, and the willingness to go the extra mile to carefully tend the vines and cultivate exceptional fruit.
