Excellent wine quality and knowledgeable staff. We felt very welcomed and were treated with utmost respect. Awesome older wine selection and rustic vibe. Not as commercial as some of the other wineries in the area, but much more inviting.
The barn is very cute and intimate. The wine was pretty good as well. Unfortunately the service we received here was awful. We did come with a big group and without a reservation, which I understand is a nightmare in the service industry, especially when you’re solo behind the bar. But that said, it could’ve been handled so much better. I would rather be turned us away for lack of reservation instead of the bartender begrudgingly serving us and making snide comments about us being there. It was just plain uncomfortable. Unfortunately I cannot recommend this place. Had much better service at Barrelhouse 6 Distillery just up the road.
Nice winery. On the smaller side with great wine and nice decor in the tasting room.
A friend and I visited several FL wineries last week. This was the first on the day we scheduled with Finger Lakes Transport which allowed us to relax and enjoy all that wine! Our hostess was knowledgeable about their wines and the history of winemaking in the FL AVA. Their wines tend to be on the drier side and quite tasty, even though we lean toward off-dry. Blends are not noted on the tasting menu, but hostess provided that info. I was anxious to try the Vignoles Method Ancestral (AKA "Pet Nat) and found it to be a pleasant, dry sparkly. Another review commented on the lack of view from the tasting room (an historic barn), but outside provides a lovely view of their vineyards, Seneca Lake, and vineyards up the east side of the lake.
Don’t be fooled by the no frills barn setup, Keuka Lake Vineyards is making some awesome wine. They have a solid variety, and some older bottles so you can appreciate the impact aging has (specifically Riesling and Cab Franc). They also had a killer Pet Nat Vignoles. If you want lake views and a beautiful porch or estate, maybe skip this one, but if you want to appreciate some of the best wines FLX has to offer it’s a must visit.
