This was our second experience at the Hunt Country Vineyards twilight picnic. This is an event that they hold on a single Saturday night every August. There was great wine and food along with entertaining music and hayrides. The vineyard is in a beautiful setting. We had a great time.

We're so glad you enjoyed the evening! (We did, too.) This year we thought we'd start the festivities earlier with a variety of educational tours. I'm glad you liked the haywagon vineyard tour. It was great of you to come all the way from East Aurora. Thank you so much for the nice review, and we hope to see you... More

The staff here is great, friendly and willing to tell you all about the wines. They are one of my favorite vineyards in the Finger Lakes, as I appreciate most of their wines, so a tasting is well worth it for most people. I was here with the gals and we really enjoyed the stop and left with a few... More

I have been to Hunt Country before on a large wine tour; but I wanted to experience it again in a smaller group. I am glad to have stopped there with my mother-in-law and my husband's visiting aunt over the 4th of July weekend. It was an intimate affair and we were welcomed immediately. We decided upon the new cheese... More

Whenever we visit the Finger Lakes (which is at least a 5 hour drive from home) we always make sure to stop at Hunt Country. The wines are very good and the staff is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We absolutely love ice wine and Hunt Country has one of the best in the region. On our most recent visit, we... More

Thanks for the recommendation! We began the chocolate and wine pairings a year or so ago ... two of the most amazing flavors, combined! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I spend some weekends in summer in the Adirondacks, also about 5 hours away, and so I appreciate your driving all this way from home. Thank you for coming back... More

I visited this winery as part of the Keuka Holidays bus trip a few weeks ago. It was one of the seven I visited that day and it was the best, hands down. Excellent selection of wine and friendly staff that was helpful and knew their wines. One of the girls there helped me with all my tastings and questions... More

Wines were wonderful, as was the service, the view, and everything else about it! Paul waited on us. Made us feel important- not rushed at all, and kept us well informed. My favorite winery in all the Finger Lakes!!!

We've gone on many occasions to Hunt Country Vineyards. They are a class organization with class employees. We've been served once or twice by Paul and he has been excellent with his explanations of the wines. The other staff is equally pleasant and friendly. Very outgoing and approachable.
