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 12-2pm. Guests may choose from 3 pre-selected library wine flights, accompanied by a sampling of local cheese and crostini to complement the selected wines.

Tastings are $30 per person, and reservations are available for groups of 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 wine making, 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!
