This place impresses you from the minute you pull off Route 96A. Once inside I find the décor matches the theme very well. Tuscany. An excellent selection of wines and some really great pizzas. I recently had their chili. Very unique with just a touch of afterbite. Loved it. If you are there in the summer, you have to enjoy... More

I took a friend here for a special birthday lunch and was SO disappointed. An employee started walking toward us as we came in the door - walked right by - no hello or any greeting - we mistook her for a hostess, boy was that a mistake! Then we went to the counter to order a green salad with... More

Ventosa is an absolute must on a wine tour. The decor is beautifully done and their food is top notch! The view from their balcony is a must see.

We frequently make a stop here .The wines are top notch and we often try to make happy hour followed by live music .Michael has went out of his way on more than one occasion to find us a table on evenings when the crowd is large. A '"must stop" if touring the Finger Lakes .

This winery was "on our list" of recommended wineries from a friend of a friend and it was one of our favorites! The staff was very friendly and explained all the wines to us in great detail. We did not feel like we were being rushed through a tasting as we did in some of the other wineries we visited.... More

Our Saturday wine tour started off at Ventosa vineyards at 11:30 and it was a wonderful start to our day. The views are beautiful and the building is clean and inviting. The man providing our tasting was very pleasant and informative about the wines he served us. We had a group of 17 people and he did a very good... More

We were in this area for a wedding. We stopped in for some wine and ended up staying for two hours. The view is fantastic and the décor is very upscale for this area. The wine is good for this area.

I have been to Ventosa many times, and I'm always pleased with my service. This time was slightly different. First, you have to have food reservations for 6+ people on a weekend, which was not relayed to me when I called and asked if I could bring a small group of 7 for lunch. We originally were told we needed... More

The tasting was well done with knowledgeable staff. The dry wines were good albeit pricey. The cafe had many good choices and we had the pizza. Great ambiance with a fabulous view.
