Vintage Room

Sheldrake Point Vintage Room

Sheldrake Point Winery is lucky to have one of the most successful library programs in the Finger Lakes. Decades in the making, it contains over 5,000 bottles dating back to the winery’s inception in 1997. Library wines provide reference for both the vineyard and winemaking teams; giving them a sense of how our vineyard is developing and how our wines evolve in the bottle over time.

We created the Vintage Room to showcase a selection of those wines. The cork floor, vaulted trellis across the ceiling (invoking the inside of a barrel), stained glass windows, and stone masonry display the talent and collaboration of several local artisans, transforming a mid-19th century horse barn into an upscale space for experiential wine tasting.

The Vintage Room is available to rent for your special events. Please email Sam Ehrenreich at SAM@SHELDRAKEPOINT.COM for more details.

Vintage Room Tastings

We welcome guests to the Vintage Room Thursday from 12PM-2PM  Friday through Sunday from 11AM-2PM. Guests may choose from 3 pre-selected library wine flights, accompanied by a sampling of local cheeses to complement the selected wines. 

Tastings are $30 per person and are enjoyed inside the Vintage Room. Reservations are available for groups up to 4 people and can be made via TOCK.  Please email Sam Ehrenreich at SAM@SHELDRAKEPOINT.COM with questions.

Please note that we cannot accommodate children or persons under the age of 21 in the Vintage Room.

Virtual Tastings

Now, more than ever, we understand the importance of being able to gather virtually with friends, family, and colleagues. Whether it be for a family or class reunion, birthday or bachelorette party, corporate retreat or team-building exercise, we want to bring your group together with this fun experience no matter how many miles separate you.

We will work with you to customize your event format and tasting kits, which are shipped to each participant in advance of the event date. Topics covered during the tasting may range from the Finger Lakes wine region and cool-climate winemaking, to the “how-tos” of wine tasting, to a history of Sheldrake Point Winery, to food pairing, to the specific wines in your glass.

Email Mia Myers at for more details and to schedule your virtual tasting!

Wiemann laying down some Wisdom!!

One of the exciting things about being a farm winery is that we get a front row seat of the changes in the vineyard.

We’re back in block 1 of Pinot Noir to talk about version starting! Hear Outside Dave chat about an indicator vine that’s planted closest to Cayuga Lake.

Time for some Dave Wiemann Wisdom! (Otherwise known as Outside Dave)

The vineyard is in full bloom, a pivotal point in the grape growing year. These delicate flowers will soon develop into individual grapes in about a month. Although they appear to be small, the blossoms are a complex and intriguing aspect of cultivating grapes. Just hear Chelsea’s shock and awe!
