This dry white is composed of fruit sourced from three different parcels around Seneca Lake. The fruit is hand-picked, hand-sorted, and fermentation takes place with native yeast.

Staff Pick Notes

Here's a new thing you can argue about over your Thanksgiving holiday: Riesling. Few grapes can produce wines of such high overall quality yet elicit such harsh reactions as Riesling.
