Overview

At Rooster Hill Vineyards we set our sights high to grow the very best grapes to make the highest quality wines. We take special care in determining the processes we use to make our wines which have earned us high marks by publications including Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast. On our Savine Estate, 4,000 feet of drainage tile is installed to ensure grapes have the best possible conditions to develop their root structure. From these techniques, we can harvest quality grapes that balance between flavor, texture, acid and tannin structure. We truly believe wine is made in the vineyard before it enters our state-of-the-art fermentation process and then control aged in our superlative French and American oak barrels. Enjoy our wines in a variety of ways by visiting our vineyards for tours and tasting room experiences, through our exclusive wine club, at our several events or through purchase on our website. After your visit or first taste, we think you'll know how exquisite our wines are and why we savor, favor and honor them.

Amazing views of Keuka Lake in a lovely rural setting. From sparking cider to the 2017 Traminette, we really enjoyed the winery offerings. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Great wine related gifts.

We stayed at a wonderful bed and breakfast Steamboat Castle Inn. You can look it up on trip advisor. The town where it's listed is PennYan. Very close to Rooster Hill and on the wine trail.
