Overview

At Rooster Hill Vineyards we set our sights high to grow the very best grapes to make the highest quality wines. We take special care in determining the processes we use to make our wines which have earned us high marks by publications including Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast. On our Savine Estate, 4,000 feet of drainage tile is installed to ensure grapes have the best possible conditions to develop their root structure. From these techniques, we can harvest quality grapes that balance between flavor, texture, acid and tannin structure. We truly believe wine is made in the vineyard before it enters our state-of-the-art fermentation process and then control aged in our superlative French and American oak barrels. Enjoy our wines in a variety of ways by visiting our vineyards for tours and tasting room experiences, through our exclusive wine club, at our several events or through purchase on our website. After your visit or first taste, we think you'll know how exquisite our wines are and why we savor, favor and honor them.

Nice tasting room. Take the time to walk around outside and enjoy the views. Inside, the selection is good and they have some very enjoyable wines on the list.

The wine was good - the presents to purchase for friends and family even better. Great crackers for between the wines!

Chardonnay is very good and there is a red blend with Cabernet Franc and Lemburger that had a smoky/bacon taste, which we loved. Nice ambiance and knowledgeable servers.

We stayed at a wonderful bed and breakfast Steamboat Castle Inn. You can look it up on trip advisor. The town where it's listed is PennYan. Very close to Rooster Hill and on the wine trail.
