The wine was just ok here. We liked the other stuff they were selling. We got dipping sauce here to last us a year!

We stopped by the Billsboro Tasting Room near the Rose Hill Mansion one afternoon and were greeted by Pablo who helped us with a tasting and subsequent purchase. This is a very small and delightful room housed in an old cottage. We had a nice conversation with Pablo and learned more about the wines of the Finger Lakes under his... More

The highlight is they offer a vertical tasting of reslings which is unique. However it was too crowded, over priced and preppy.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. I'm sorry you found us too busy. Saturdays in September and October are among the busiest days during the year for all the wineries in the Finger Lakes. Many of our customers avoid these weekends for that very reason. I hope you will try visiting us again on... More

This place was recommended to us by a local. They do dry European style wines. I thought their wines were the best in the Finger Lakes area. The wines are from locally sourced grapes, they are not estate grown. $5 tasting fee. Tasting room is in a beautiful 100+ year old barn, with some outdoor seating in a beautiful location... More

This little winery was wonderful! The day I stopped in, the owner took time to go over every wine with me since no one else was there. He was so sweet and very knowledgable. The wine was delicious! I even bought a bottle and will definitely be going back.

Mostly dry wine. Did enjoy the dessert wine. there was neat jewelry and original artwork here but we didn't feel like the experience was amazing. $5/4 or 5 wines (I forget) and you can have $2 chocolates. Didn't indulge in that but I bet they were good. Also there's some bread and sauces you can try. Was not offered any... More

I'm sorry your experience at Billsboro didn't meet your expectations. We do try to let everyone know that we are a winery specializing in dry wines. We mark it on all our literature and on-line marketing materials, but it's hard to reach everyone. We charge a $5 tasting fee for 6 different wines and we return that $5 with a... More

We loved the wine, winery and especially Deanna. She exceeded our expectations in every way. She was very experienced and knowledgeable about the wines and so pleasant to work with. She then was able to give us some great ideas on what to do on our vacation. Thank you, Deanna for everything!!

Our large family group of 10 arrived right before a rainstorm and waited out the storm enjoying their enjoyable wines. Pablo was a great host and took time to explain the differences and unique qualities of each wine. What a great way to begin our Seneca lake wine tasting experience. Thanks Pablo.

The winery's showroom was well-groomed, clean and welcoming. the sales associate was knowledgeable and accommodating. but most of all: what an excellent wine! we purchased the Syrah 2012, a dry red wine spicy with deep peppery flavor, truly a pleasure! and the Kashong White 2013, a semi-dry white wine, very fruity and round, very pleasant to the palates.
