Description:

Heron Hill Winery is nestled into a hillside overlooking scenic Keuka Lake...

Heron Hill Winery is nestled into a hillside overlooking scenic Keuka Lake in New York's Finger Lakes region. For over 35 years, Heron Hill has won many awards for its distinctive, elegant wines and continues to be at the forefront of cool climate winemaking. Establishing our heritage among some of the first vinifera wineries in the Finger Lakes, John and Josephine Ingle founded Heron Hill Winery in 1977. Through perseverance and long-term dedication to excellence in winemaking, Heron Hill Winery has become a world-class destination.

Heron Hill remains family-owned. For the Ingles, practicing sustainably is a way of life and means giving respect. Respect for the land in how we farm our estate vineyards, and respect for the consumer by offering wines with an authentic sense of place and by providing visitors with a friendly and informative experience.

Today, Heron Hill offers over 20 wine varieties; crisp and light Rieslings, aromatic dry Chardonnays, the winery's legendary Eclipse series, complex Pinot Noirs and Cabernet Francs, and specially crafted dessert wines.

I enjoyed this stop on the famous wine trail in the area. The beautiful and aged majestic building overlooks the many grape vines down below which are named for the type of wine grapes. Inside the tasting room the employee was very informative about the different types of wines to taste and there were many to choose from for people... More

Mgr handled our wine tasting. She was very friendly and knowledgable. Patiently explained differences between white and red wines. Normally drink a sweet wine, but was encouraged to try their blush wine. A drier wine, the blush would not have been on my taste list but I loved it and bought a bottle. Also tried their grape flavored iced tea.... More

Besides having the most amazing view, atmosphere, and winery, its is by far in my opinion the best WINE on Kueka. Highly recommend this to those on the tour here.

Stopped here on the way to Niagara - lovely location with great views down across the lake. Given around 8 wines to taste ranging in price - but all were lacking in taste or body. I guess they will keep trying!

Heron Hill is a huge winery on Keuka Lake. Their tasting room is crazy and they have outdoor tastings when the weather is nicer... as well as outdoor dining. Their store is really cute and this place was busy, busy, busy. We weren’t overly impressed with their wines, but a lot of that may have been the super crazy environment... More

It was no wonder Heron Hill was voted a top ten tasting room in the world. The views of Keuka Lake were amazing! Prolly got a bonus point for that. The wines were solid, nothing I'd have to have. Prices were reasonable and they had a varied selection.
