Overview

Heron Hill Winery, rated as one of the most spectacular tasting rooms in the world by Travel + Leisure, is nestled into a hillside overlooking scenic Keuka Lake in New York's Finger Lakes region. For over 40 years, our family-owned winery has won many awards for its distinctive, elegant wines and continues to be at the forefront of cool climate winemaking. Establishing our heritage among some of the first vinifera wineries in the Finger Lakes, John and Josephine Ingle founded Heron Hill Winery in 1977. Through perseverance and long-term dedication to excellence in winemaking, Heron Hill Winery has become a world-class destination for wine as well as a wedding event venue. For the Ingles, practicing sustainability is a way of life. Respect for the land in how we farm our estate vineyards, and respect for the consumer by offering wines with an authentic sense of place and by providing visitors with a friendly and informative experience.

The tasting room offers some beautiful views of Keuka Lake. I especially enjoyed the semi-sweet Reisling. A favorite. Afterwards we stopped on the outdoor patio for a nice lunch. Food was casual sandwiches which were fairly priced. In addition, there was a local guitarist who...More

Heron Hill is a nice winery, one of their main problems is their production is a bit lacking. The wines overall are decent, good Rieslings but they were out of most of their reds. The atmosphere is very nice and the service in the tasting...More
