The scenery at the winery was gorgeous and the staff were incredibly attentive. There's so many wineries and breweries in the Finger Lakes, but I would highly recommend this one.

It is amazing how much the staff behind the counter impress you enjoying your tasting. Wine is about community. It is sharing with friends and often includes great food too. So when you are at a tasting you need to connect with the staff member who is pouring as they are your shared experience at the moment. I did not... More

We had a very nice lady serving wines for our tasting. She was very knowledge about the wines and interested in what we prefer. They have a beautiful location and loved to see them going solar and reduce their carbon footprint. Would stop here again.

With all the challenges that farmers have faced over the years, we feel lucky to have been able to hang in there for six generations. And since we'd love to have another six, we've been focusing on the sustainability of the farm and business. We just completed the installation of the solar panels (348 of them!). They should generate 70%... More

Stop here for their Cabernet Franc; it is very, very good. Beautiful winery atop a hill on Keuka. There is a modest tasting fee, but the fee can be used towards wine purchases. You can taste from the list or do a wine and cheese or wine and chocolate pairing. I chose the wine and cheese and it was excellent.

;-) I have a secret to share. When our team does a particularly good job serving guests on a given day, they can take home a bottle of wine of their choice. Over the past year, the wine most chosen by our staff has been the Cab Franc. Great minds think alike! Thanks so much for your nice review.... More

On our annual trip to the Finger Lakes Wine Country we try to visit different places every year. This was a bit of a drive for us, but it was worth it. Nice wines with good discounts.

The Hunts and their staff are always very welcoming and fun, their wines are superb, and the view from their tasting room is spectacular. We also find so many things we like in their gift shop. This is a family-owned and -operated vineyard and winery that goes back five generations! (And now their grandson is the 7th generation.) To top... More

This is our favorite winery and one of the friendliest on the Keuka Lake Wine Trail.

I attended the Northeast Jazz and Wine Festival in Syracuse this past weekend. I visited the wine tasting tent to check it out before I paid for the tastings. Was very pleased to see all local NYS wineries. I went back on Saturday night and found out that Hunt Country left the festival at the beginning of the Saturday night... More

I thought I'd like this winery best because they pair wine and cheese. But the cheese portions are puny and the wine isn't all that great. Puny wine pours too.

We serve 1 ounce of cheese and 2 ounces of wine in our Wine & Cheese Tasting. I'm very sorry we disappointed you. It's a balancing act. We want to serve enough to really taste the wine and cheese, but not so much that we risk getting the guest intoxicated (guests can visit several wineries in quick succession) or inflating... More
