    Had a fantastic time at this winery! Taking a trip here did not feel awkward, especially since I have not been to many wineries in the past. The younger woman who was working was wonderful and made my girlfriend and I feel incredibly welcomed. We had a fun time exploring the property and looking at all of the giant dinosaur figurines and other animal figures they have scattered across the property. They have a dry, sweet, and mixed list for the wine tasting. We had tried the "Sweet" list which gave us 5 different ~2.5 oz cups to try. We really loved all of the flavors that were given to us especially the Seneca Dream Red, the Seneca Dream Red Bubbly, and the Vidal Blanc Iced. They also have a disk golf course if you are interested in that. The course travels around the property and looks like a lot of fun to do. We went on a Tuesday afternoon and there was a couple people there when we arrived. The property is off of the main road so it is a nice quiet place to go and enjoy so great wines.

    What’s great little winery in the Finger Lakes. This one is “off the beaten path” but not far from other local attractions/wineries. But we’ll worth seeking out! Beautiful countryside, nice big tasting area. Not pretentious!! The servers did a wonderful job telling us about the winery and wines and the tasting was at our pace which was so appreciated. We were able to sit out on the big beautiful back deck and relax. Grabbed some cheese and crackers and just enjoyed the last of the summer. Afterwards we wandered the grounds and saw sheep grazing and a menagerie of Donosaur and animal figures (see photos). Our favorite winery in the area. Would definitely return and highly recommend!

    Hands down quirkiest winery I’ve ever been to. Came with our two young kids after a busload of tipsy women were leaving to continue their Monday afternoon celebration elsewhere. The lone tasting room employee was visibly exasperated (as anyone would be after a horde of drunk people just put them through the ringer), but was extremely gracious, kind & awesome. Wines skewed more to sweeter whites, with a few drier whites and just a few reds. We are both dry red drinkers, so we had the only dry red, Baco Noir, and a strawberry flavored slush concoction…both were decent. The iced drink was especially clutch on a 92 degree day. The quirkiness came in the form of the herd of sheep that have free reign over the property, the public chalkboard wall, the massive array of life-sized ‘dinosaurs’ on the property & the disc golf course amongst them. Kids loved it, the sheep were adorable, and as someone who travels with discs it was nice to see a course on a winery. Needless to say we will be back for the welcoming & zany atmosphere, even if the majority of the wines aren’t necessarily our style.

    This is an older style vineyard, looking more like a manor. The outside is a little rundown with needing painting and a new sign but once you walk in you see a beautiful tasting room. We were given a three flight choice this time: sweet, dry and mixed flight. I tried the sweet while Jammie went with the mixed. After ordering you go sit down which we decided to do on the patio. Again the patio and chairs could use a good round of paint and the deck railing makes it hard to fully enjoy the view of Seneca Lake over the vines. Why don't people build terraced decks!! The tasting is an at your pace of a tasting board which I love. No stress to drink fast or to slow down.  The music in the background also gives it a chill feel. They also have a chalk wall that people write their names on which is such a great idea! The wines were great. As we were leaving the vineyard though we came across some 40-60 ft statues of dinosaurs so we decided to stop. While looking around we came across more dinosaurs in the woods. We started to walk around and get some pictures when a man approached us. We were both worried we had stumbled on some private property but it was the owner of the vineyard out walking his dog. He was seeing up a scene with the dinos in the woods for people to come and view. It got us to stop and he wasnt even done yet. Can't wait too see what it looks like at the end. We also noticed that people were playing disc golf that was set up around the property. This looks like more fun then we gave it credit, definitely worth coming back for!

    Making our way to Ithaca, we took the scenic route and stopped at this winery. Being dog friendly we were already impressed. Although the wines are not quite our style, we were over the top impressed with the lovely young lady who had only been on the job for 5 days. Very attentive and a great attitude. Definitely went above and beyond our expectations and she was aiming to please.
