Visit By Boat

Our tasting rooms are accessible by water! Visitors to Cayuga Lake with boats up to 35’ in length are welcome to tie up at one of our eight slips. A gravel path will lead you along our 400-foot beach to the tasting room across the street. From the water, look for the farm buildings and small F-shaped dock just south of the point.

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.

Vintage Room Tastings

We welcome guests to the Vintage Room Thursday-Sunday from 11-2pm. 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. Reservations are available for groups up to 4 people and can be made via TOCK or by emailing Mia Myers at mia@sheldrakepoint.com.

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 mia@sheldrakepoint.com for more details and to schedule your virtual tasting!

“The sweetness of doing nothing…” except drinking Dry Rosé 🍷🌸

Tasting room is open 7 days a week for seated tastings, or glass and bottle service! Can’t wait to host you ☺️
...

Do you love Rosé as much as we do? Want to explore the varietal a little further? Well, we have the perfect event for you!

On Saturday, July 16th, from 2:00pm - 4:00pm we will be having our very first Rosé All Ways event!

What do we mean by rosé all ways? During this event, we’ll be tasting rosé both vertically AND horizontally! We will begin with a flight of Sheldrake Point Dry Rosé pulled from our library, followed by a flight of 2021 rosés – each produced by a different Finger Lakes winery. Small bites made by Chef Chris Pawlowski demonstrate the versatility of this style of wine.

You can purchase your tickets and reserve your seats through the link in our bio - cheers! 🌸🍷

Join us in welcoming Mia as our new Wine Club Manager!

Many of you will recognize Mia, as she has been a key member of our Tasting Room Team since 2018. In 2021 she became our Hospitality Specialist, focusing on events, Vintage Room tastings, and our library wine program.

She is once again changing hats and taking over management of the Wine Club—we know she will be fabulous in this role!

After 7 years, Whitney is leaving Sheldrake Point for a position in Alumni Affairs and Development at Cornell University. We wish her well and know that she'll miss our Wine Club community. Who knows...maybe she'll join us as a member!
