A friend and I recently visited several of the wineries in and around Ithaca, and Ports of New York was hands down our favorite. The wines are all delicious, and we loved chatting with Frederic about his family's history! HIGHLY recommended for any wine afficionado!

Wonderfully tucked away near the canals, Frederick takes you through the wine he makes describing his history, the wine regions, and tools around wine. The wine was tasty, but the presentation was fabulous. Even Tucker the poodle, was very friendly.

Small, intimate winery. Doesn’t look like much from the outside but it was my favorite winery. The owner is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. All of their wine offerings were excellent. You may not have the exterior scenery, but I can definitely recommend this establishment.

Short and sweet but worth the stop. Delicious wines, a fantastic host and the sweetest pup! The 2 port's were so different from other wines on Seneca or Cayuga. A definite stop if you are near Ithaca!
