The casual environment is a great place to enjoy a variety of fine wines, local music, local art and the culinary culture of the Finger Lakes. Now also home to Forge Cellars.

Normally I visit with my husband as wine club members. Today I visited as apart of a bachelorette party. I know large parties can be difficult to deal with. The staff was extremely accommodating. Amazing wine and customer service.

A simple winery, with a basic tasting, offering nice wines from the region. Something for everyone in this visit. They also are helping out a sister winery until they complete their tasting room.
