Tasting Room

Couple wine tasting at Sheldrake Point Winery

USA Today Reader's Choice 2018 Best Wine RegionDue to the current spike in Covid-19 cases locally, we have made the difficult decision to suspended all tastings and wine service. Our concern for the health of staff and guests alike is top of mind as we navigate the coming months. 

We will remain open 7 days a week 12-5pm for to-go purchases. We hope you’ll still plan to visit, say hello, and stock up on wine for the holidays.

Note: ride-sharing companies (like Uber or Lyft) do not operate regularly in our area. If you are dropped off, please ensure you have a pick-up already scheduled.

Event at Sheldrake Point Winery

Walk-in tasting requests will be accommodated if reservations are not full. Please see the host upon arrival.

Vintage Room

Sheldrake Point Vintage Room

The Vintage Room will remain closed for tastings and rentals until further notice.


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; to get a sense of how our vineyard is developing and to see 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.

Vintage Room Tastings

Our tasting room manager welcomes guests to the Vintage Room on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30-2:30. Guests are treated to a flight of 3 pre-selected library wines alongside their current release counterparts, as well as a local food pairing to complement the wines. Tastings are $30 per person.

  • May – October: no reservation needed — walk-ins welcome!
  • November – April: by reservation only.

Please email to schedule.
