“Wonderful visit. Our wine poured was knowledgable and friendly. She was able to aptly match our flavor palates to create a wonderful experience. We opted to sit on the porch with a glass of wine and some cheese overlooking to amazing views. Excellent wine, service and environment“. – M.M., Fort Worth, TX Oct 2015
“We’re not much for tastings as we prefer to simply order a glass of dry red or white wine of the staff’s choosing and then taking it out and enjoying the grounds, especially in wineries with views of the lake. The knowledgeable woman in the tasting room would have none of that and charmed me into tasting all of the “dry wines” before choosing one. She was right as they were all so very different, and I ended up with a wine I truly enjoyed rather than just any dry wine. Her explanation of “meritage” was also very helpful, and she probably could have taught this long-time wine drinker so much more. A great experience from a great winery representative“. – B.D., Utica, NY Sept 2015
“This was by far one of the best customer service experiences in the tasting room. The winery representative was very friendly and knowledgeable about the wines and enthusiastic. This is a place for Riesling. Yes, I know the Finger Lakes is known for Rieslings but this place is REALLY good“. – P.B., Harrisburg, PA Aug 2015
