CJS is a family winery, with plenty of knowhow and expertise. The tasting was very warm, friendly and informative, reflecting deep tradition. Good wines, too.

This winery is definitely off the beaten path. With so many large wineries in the Finger Lakes, it was nice to visit a small intimate operation. The owner, Chris, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his wines. Reds are better than the whites here. Try...More

We stopped in on our way home and the proprietor/winemaker walked out to greet us. After an enjoyable sampling of the available wines, he gave us a quick tour of the facility. It was clean and well organized. I would recommend winery for Riesling lovers.

We have visited CJS Vineyards on numerous occasions, and it's always wonderful. Chris takes the time to discuss and explain all of his wines, which are marvelous, and the prices are very good. Looking forward to a return trip.
