Estate grown on the shores of Cayuga Lake since 1997. We are committed to producing distrinctive estate wines that showcase the quality of our cool climate Finger Lakes vineyard. By maintaining the vineyard through sustainable practices, we recognize the symbiotic relationship we have with the land on which our grapes are grown.
