The wine at Azure is wonderful. The owners, Leslie and Joe make your tasting experience enjoyable. You can truly see how passionate they are about the wines they make as they explain each one. The view is stunning from Azure.
This was probably our favorite winery. The wines were great and the service was even better. Beautiful view too!
Our stop at Azure Hill Winery was the highlight of our trip. By comparison smaller than most of the other locations we visited, but that made it all that much more enjoyable. There were not a ton of wine options but I can say the ones that we had were all delicious and more unique than any other ones in the region. Most wines on the drier side which played to our palette. Small gift shop inside along with food options at a tent on the outside. We ordered some wraps and salads and they were really good. The fresh fruit was amazing. What really makes this winery special are the owners. Joe and his wife Leslie are super knowledgeable and came to the area from New York City, where Joe was a world-renowned chef (aka the magician). They go out of their way to cater everyone. They did offer free tastings for veterans or active military which was nice. The naming comes from the color of the water in the lake as described by astronauts as a flew over it in the Gemini spacecraft, saying that they were over the azure waters of the Finger Lake region. Was a unique enough name or I had to ask how they came up with it. There is so much more I could share about Joe and Leslie, and their experiences to get them to where there today, but I don't want to spoil it for those who want to go there and share a similar experience. Be sure to talk to them because not only do they own it, but they operate it. One of them will be at your table most likely! There was sitting indoors as well as on the covered patio. It does overlook the lake as well for some scenic viewing
The wine was ok. The building is ok. The ambiance is ok. The view is really nice.
Joe is awesome! Went here with a friend for the tasting and the staff/owners were very friendly and personable and just a good time. The views don't hurt either! I liked the riesling and the brut.
