Pretty good wine in a nice tasting room

This place was not on our radar, but the building looked so nice we took a chance that paid off. The wine is above average withe Via Biaco semi semi white and the Cab Franc the highlights. We didn't eat here, but the food looked and smelled tempting.

We arrived 1/2 hr before closing. Michael, the nephew of the owners, spent time with us talking about the vineyard, the layout and the specific areas for each grape variety. All while we sampled the wines. I was very impressed by his willingness to spend time with us. The view from the wine bar was lovely. I wish we had... More

My wife and I visited Ventosa on their Friday night band night recently, something we have done many times over several years. They can't seem to get the simple "buy one get one" procedure perfected, even after all these years. Every time we go they are doing it differently (IE sometimes they give a single ticket for each drink, other... More

we love going here not only for the great Happy Hour wine deal but for amazing music from very talented local artists. If you want a really beautiful ambiance, great pizza and panini's made by Ernie , and just a fun evening then stop by!

I took my husband here for his birthday and we had a terrific time! Mid-summer breeze, great food, the scenic overlook of the lake and the great service all added to the already beautiful day we were having :)

My husband and I stopped into Ventosa during a very cold and snowy visit to Seneca Lake. We went there since they were one of the few wineries that were open and serving food during this time and were pleasently surprised with the red wine we tasted and the food we ordered. Granted it was a cheese plate with local... More

Everything here is phenomenal! From the wine choices to the food to the service! Nick was incredible! He was so knowledgeable about the wines and food and different pairings. He even gave us a couple xtra samples of wines not listed which led me to purchasing them! Nick is a huge asset to that place and I cannot wait to... More

A large party of us had a lunch at Ventosa on November 8. The food was very good, the wood-fired pizzas especially. It was a lot for them to take 16 orders and get them done all at once, and they slipped up and omitted one. They were very apologetic but the order, a special of the day, didn't show... More
