Wonderfully tucked away near the canals, Frederick takes you through the wine he makes describing his history, the wine regions, and tools around wine. The wine was tasty, but the presentation was fabulous. Even Tucker the poodle, was very friendly.

Small, intimate winery. Doesn’t look like much from the outside but it was my favorite winery. The owner is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. All of their wine offerings were excellent. You may not have the exterior scenery, but I can definitely recommend this establishment.

Short and sweet but worth the stop. Delicious wines, a fantastic host and the sweetest pup! The 2 port's were so different from other wines on Seneca or Cayuga. A definite stop if you are near Ithaca!

What a wonderful place to visit. Friendly welcoming staff offering tastings and a tour. A traditional Winery of Old World Character. Left with some excellent selections of Port and Wine to enjoy at Home. A+

They only produce two wines and two ports but seriously recommend stopping in for a tasting and listening to the owners story of his family’s winery and France and the antiques. Both wines were very good (blends) but the ports were our favorite.
