My husband and I have found some local (Finger Lakes) red wines that are really good "for New York" (known much more for spectacular whites, especially rieslings). These reds were just downright GREAT red wines! We did a tasting and Phyllis was informative, friendly and...More

Stopped in because we were driving by. The tasting room was full. The server looked rushed. And then, he was immediately friendly. He gave us great service and poured us extra. The wine was excellent. We were so happy we stopped. We bought a case...More

That's about it.....Great view and big gift shop. The wines are ok. The server I can only assume was not knowledgeable in her wines as she offered little to no information on the wines. The experience fell quite flat

We went in and sampled from the Idol Ridge Winery and Alder Creek Distillery. Ended up buying both wines and spirits. They have an excellent selection of both. One stop for two types of beverages, you cannot go wrong.
