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. The wines themselves are top-notch, among the best around. And the prices... More

We visited several (5) wineries while in the Keuka Lake area and Hunt Country was my husbands favorite. He loved the wines and the surrounding area. I'm so glad we decided to take a drive and stumbled upon this winery. The tastings cost $2. But they then give you $2. In coupons to spend on wine , not to mention... More

My wife and I visit the Keuka Lake wineries every year for the past 20 years. We always make a stop at Hunt Country winery. It does not have a restaurant like some of the other Keuka Lake wineries but their wines are excellent and very reasonably priced. The staff is very knowlegable and helpful. The gift shop is a...

Took a last minute trip up to Rochester this past weekend to visit my boyfriend. While up there, I decided we should go on another Finger Lakes wine tour (we went last year to Seneca Lake), but this time on Keuka Lake. This was our first stop.
