The wines are very good. . We like dry wines... The reds were good, but... There are other wineries with good reds that don't cost quite as much... Definitely worth the stop... read more

After several wine tastings on the wine trail, we found this winery by a chance recommendation. We were impressed by the quality of the wines, appeciative of the laidback atmosphere, and delighted by the charming setting at Billsboro.

Living in Ithaca we've been to many wineries. Billsboro has some of the nicest staff we ever had the pleasure of meeting. Brian, our tasting guru steered us in the right direction once he learned our wine preferences. Pours are generous, and we never felt rushed or pressured while others were waiting.

The staff here is very friendly and if you can manage to be out there for pizza on the patio do it. Great food and the wine is awesome.

We stopped in 11 minutes before closing and tasted 6 wines. Our pourer was friendly and knowledgeable and gave us great info in the town of Geneva where we planned to dine that evening. Felt no rush. The wines are very good. We bought a couple bottles of dry riesling and a franc blend both of which are excellent. We... More

Don't get me wrong. I really like Billsboro. Good wines. Nice setting. When I took 2 winery novices on the trail, Billsboro should have been a perfect first stop. To me there are 3 things that make a good winery experience - the wine, the atmosphere, the pourer. I was there on June 16, early afternoon. No one else at... More

No one likes to get a bad review, but this one was particularly troubling to me as the owner. We pride ourselves on our top notch staff and our welcoming atmosphere, as can be seen in the majority of our reviews. Unfortunately that was not your experience and for that I apologize. I won't try to make an excuse, as... More

We have been here often because we are very fond of their Rieslings. If you like sweet wines, this is not the place for you. They do not grow their own grapes but purchase from surrounding vineyards. We started with a male pourer who had the attitude of not really caring or knowing much. When others arrived, he left us... More

Thanks for thumbs up on our Pinot Noir. Our winemaker has received many accolades for this particular varietal. For the first time this year, we will be releasing two 2014 vintages from two different single vineyards, Sawmill Creek and Leidenfrost. They are remarkably different despite being grown at vineyards only a few miles away from each other. Release will be... More
