We actually hit both of Billsboro's sites outside of Geneva. The barn house is a nice place to taste and relax. Their wines are quiet good and we enjoyed a picnicked lunch (we brought) on their patio. The grounds a view were a nice treat.

Thanks for your kind review. We love to have folks sit outside and enjoy a picnic lunch, either one of our Billsboro boxes, or your own, while enjoying a glass of Billsboro wine. We hope you come back to see us again! More

Great ending and our last stop after visiting a total of 7 wineries throughout the day. We really liked the White Swan and the Syrah, which we didn't find anywhere else. We didn't go the larger location with mansion, but we liked the petite tasting room.

Thank you so much for your review of our Tasting Room at the Rose Hill Mansion. We appreciate the kind words. We operate that small tasting room in conjunction with the Geneva Historical Society and we give back a percentage of sales to the Historical Society. The tour of the Rose Hill Mansion is a must next if you enjoy... More

We went to the small tasting room after visiting the Rose Hill Mansion, which was located steps away on the same property. We both did the wine and chocolate pairing. They were OK, but I was not as impressed with the chosen pairings as I have been at other wineries. I also expected more of an atmosphere from a tasting... More

Dear Mary S, I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed in our satellite tasting room on the grounds of the Rose Hill Mansion. In general we have a very positive response to our wine and chocolate pairing and I'm sorry it didn't meet your expectations. What I would really like to address is your impression of our tasting...

Cute barn and rustic feel, amazing artwork on the wall but not realistic pricing. We hit 10 wineries on our trip and of all of them served a two sip or more tasting, this one barely poured enough to wet your palate. I loved the idea of pairing the chocolates to taste but it was difficult to use the chocolate... More

Hi Cait, I'm so sorry for your less than pleasant experience at Billsboro. It certainly sounds like you were under-poured. We train our staff to pour enough for at least 3 tastes of wine with each pour with our chocolate pairing and to pour additional wine when requested. I am sorry that you weren't afforded this opportunity. We hope you... More

Love the tasting cellar! We were greeted by a very friendly woman. I wish I remembered her name. Instead of wine crackers there were pieces of locally made farm bread...yummm and samples of cheese and cured meats. Fantastic. The wines were lovely! We bought a few bottles to bring back home! They do a pizza on the patio nights. I... More

After hitting various wineries along this side of Seneca Lake this past weekend our group decided that we really enjoyed Billsboro winery. From it's selections of wines to it's jewelry, etc for sale they do a great job for those who visit. I probably shouldn't give it a good review because I'd like to keep the big tour buses away...

Billsboro Winery produces some of the very best wines in the Finger Lakes. I love their Dry Riesling, Pinot Noir, Dry Rose and Sauvignon Blanc especially. Staff is always friendly and helpful and the owners do a lot for the community. It's an amazing place. Have been many times to taste wines, purchase wines, enjoy live music and pizza, hear... More

We live in the area and Billsboro is one of the wineries we take visitors to taste. We like the overall atmosphere and the people that work there are friendly and knowledgeable. It's rarely crowded and we never feel rushed while tasting.

The wine and chocolate pairing was fabulous! I wanted to try a few wines not included in the pairing and the very knowledgeable staff was more than happy to accomodate me! My only complaint was that they usually sell the chocolates and they were out!
