30th Celebration


This year marks our 30th Anniversary and we will be celebrating throughout the year, with a major Anniversary Party planned for Saturday June 4th!

Each year we host a special anniversary case sale at our Finger Lakes winery, and this year is no exception.  In fact, this will be the BIGGEST case sale we have ever hosted in our 30 years of operation! The case sale will take place on June 4th with more details to come!

The June 4th festivities will also be featuring live music, BBQ food, along with fun games and activities for everyone to enjoy.  Another exciting part of the day will be our first ever vertical tasting of multiple vintages of our Optimus, one of the best known Finger Lakes red wines for years.

Beginning with our first vintage in 1991, Optimus has been our flagship red wine and is made from a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This featured tasting will be alongside owner, Dave Peterson, and members of our winemaking team. Tickets for the vertical tasting will be $10 per person and can be purchased by calling the winery at (607) 403-0029. Tickets for the vertical tasting will be limited but the celebration is a free event for the general public who can also partake in a traditional wine tasting in the tasting room with the standard tasting fees.
