Owner description: The Hunt family has been farming west of Branchport, NY, on Keuka Lake for seven generations and started the winery in 1981. Our 170-acre farm encompasses 43 acres of wine grapes. The varieties under our care include Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Seyval Blanc, and Vignoles. We are the oldest continuous producer of genuine ice wine in the United States. Our wines have been served at the United Nations, ordered by the White House, featured in Food & Wine and on NBC's Today Show. We have nearly eliminated our fossil fuel use for heating, cooling and electricity by installing award-winning geothermal and solar systems. Our goal is to farm and make wine in ways that ensure the health of our land, water, and air for future generations.

We stopped here because we had previously been given a bottle of their seyval blanc as a gift and we really liked it. We ended up doing a wine and cheese pairing tasting. They also do chocolate and wine pairings as well. They sell the cheese there from the tastings too. We liked the goat cheese and gouda so much that we bought some to take with us. The cheeses they serve are from a local creamery. We also purchased a bottle of the seyval blanc and the hunters red to take with us. Additionally they have an area where they serve lunch. This is a great vineyard and worth the stop. They have some nice gift shop items as well. The staff was also very nice and knowledgeable.

I have been going to Hunt Country for over 30 years and they have never disappointed. Lovely selections of wines, great cafe and what a view. Staff are friendly and knowledgable. Recently they have added local and musicians traveling through showcasing their talents in the tasting room at night. What an amazing addition. If your not on their events mailing list you should be. Great things are happening there.

Note: This rating is not based on the wine since everyone has different tastes. I was impressed with the helpful, friendly staff. My friend and I began our tasting, but after just one wine, my friend realized she was in desperate need of a food break. We had some snacks out on the deck and enjoyed the view. After the break, we returned to the tasting area and they allowed us to continue where we left off. They were pretty busy, but still accommodating. I didn't end up buying any wine this time, but I would definitely go back again.

I was not very impressed with Hunt winery. The young gentleman was very sweet who gave us our tasting. He told us a tasting was $3.00 and we picked out our wines. Thats pretty much it. A couple came in after us and the woman who greeted them told them about all of the tastings they offer. She offered them a regular tasting, a tasting with cheese pairing and a tasting with chocolate pairing. If we had known about the cheese pairing we would have gladly payed the extra fee to try it.

We're really sorry all the tasting choices weren't presented to you. The cheese pairing is a good one. When you have a free moment, please get in touch with our tasting room manager, Allie (allie@huntwines.com). We want to make sure you have a way better experience the next time you stop in. Thanks!
