There is no doubt that Walter Taylor changed the wine landscape in NY. Although I am not particularly fond of his wines--the personality and history were absolutely fascinating. This was my second trip to the vineyard--the first being 26 years ago. The changes were significant. There were many vineyards to choose on the Seneca Trail--but we opted for Bully Hill... More

The views from on top of one of the highest points surrounding Keuka Lake were amazing. Wine tasting is complimentary when you eat in the cafe on the property. The food was absolutely wonderful and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful.

I had originally visited Bully Hill many years ago and I remembered it to be only good at sweet wines. This visit, I was bringing my mother along. Know that she only drank sweet wines, I figured that this would be a great stop. I was right. My mother loved it. Along with her, I was pleasantly surprised that the... More

On October 6, 2014, our group of four visited Bully Hill Vineyards. We didn't know in advance whether there was a charge for wine tasting. There is a $5 charge and you get to keep the glass. For $5, you get to taste 5 different wines. We tasted Love My Boat, Banty Red, Vintage Riesling, and Late Harvest Vidal. Generally,... More

My husband and I visited here as our third stop of the day. It was a fun stop, with a tasting room, sakes room, wine museum, gift shop and restaurant. The wine host was not only knowledgeable, he was very entertaining. This was truly a fun stop! Thank goodness they had a restaurant, because after 3 wineries we really needed... More

We visited 8 wineries on our October trip to NY wine country and this was by far our favorite. Our wine ambassador was delightful in her sense of humor, generous with her pour and knowledgeable about all of Bully Hill's many wines. Their prices were reasonable and we left with a case that we are still enjoying and sharing back... More

None of us liked the wines, we found the majority of them too sweet. The winery itself is actually gorgeous and we wish we could have stayed for lunch but there was a big bus full of people and we did not have time to wait.
