For those looking for wines and food from the old country, this is your vineyard. Ventosa has successfully established the Sangiovese grape and has establish itself as the maker of fine Italian-based wines. We sampled them with a light lunch on the deck that overlooks the vineyard and Lake Seneca.

Ventosa is located on the northeast corner of Seneca Lake in Geneva. It is very nicely decorated and well maintained. The view of the vineyards and Seneca Lake from the expansive terrace is beautiful. The wedding banquet of 200+ guests was well staffed and the owners were visible and appeared to be committed to quality and customer satisfaction. Our party's... More

Visited here this spring and tasted their wines. They have a beautiful building painted and decorated like a Tuscan mansion with a lovely deck overlooking Seneca Lake. Wines are excellent and the ambiance is fabulous. Definitely worth a visit.

We stopped at this winery as we had never been here in previous wine tours. The location was great. Staff, not so much. In fact, those giving the wine tasting were rude. We came up and asked to see the menu. We asked a couple of standard questions. After having been there for a few minutes and in process of... More

We go wine tasting on Seneca Lake often, but have not been to Ventosa in 2 years.....now we know why. It was wine and cheese pairing weekend, plus a Riesling passport tasting package and of course also being a wedding season/ first sunny warm spring weekend and they were under staffed at the main tasting bar. We also remembered a... More

I have been to Ventosa many times for lunch, both in good weather, seated on the balcony, and in colder weather, seated indoors. Regular lunch means ordering at the counter, then seating yourself to have your meal brought out to you. This is not fine dining. The lunch menu is generally good, if not huge, and I especially enjoy the... More

This place was so snooty. I was there with a group of friends and thankfully we did not stay very long. The staff was rude and the environment was not very welcoming. I was not impressed whatsoever. The server acted as though we were inconveniencing her by being there and it was just not a good experience. I will not... More

We just came here for the wine tasting and it was a beautiful december day! Ventosa's service was great and the wine tasting was a wonderful experience! Their whites have a great scent and taste to go along with it! I would highly reccomend this winery for a future tasting!

Thank You for the review! December sure is a great time to visit us; the terrace is a little chilly but you can't beat the view, and it's not so crowded. Thanks for stopping, we hope to see you again, soon! More

What a wonderful time we had, the ambiance is awesome. The food was absolutely delicious. We chose the prime rib and it was tender and perfectly seasoned. The cocktail hour appetizers were plentiful- swedish meatballs-yumm, scallops wrapped in bacon, huge schrimp, etc all excellent. The staff was eager to please and it made the evening a huge success.
