What a beautiful setting overlooking vineyards, Keuka finger lake and the opposing hillsides. A very large tasting room is set up to handle the anticipated numbers of visitors to this setting. The free tasting is artfully handled by a well trained staff. A wide selection of sparkling, white and red wines are offered during the tasting, but you can also select a wine of your choice from the extensive wine menu. Traditional fare to the unique, as their Rkatsiteli, are presented. Though not truly to our taste, we did leave with interesting examples of Gewurztraminer, Rkatsiteli and Lemberger wines.
