About
Casa Larga Vineyards – We are now celebrating 45 years of producing award winning Finger Lakes wines. In 1974, Mr. C planted the first two acres in Fairport, NY, naming it Casa Larga after his grandparents' vineyards in Italy. The first harvest came in 1978 and won three awards at the NYS Wine Competition. Estate White (currently Pallido) and Estate Red (currently Tramonto) were those first wines. Mr. C's dream came true and passion, patience and tenderness were his gifts to the vines and the wines they produced. Mr. C's hobby matured into a larger business, and Casa Larga became the 21st licensed winery in New York State. Casa Larga has now entered the golden era of New York State winemaking, becoming an icon, as well as a sparkling jewel of the Finger Lakes and Rochester regions. We are home to the New York State Ice Wine Festival every February and the Purple Foot Grape Stomping Festival every September. Experience the Italian Way of Living, with wine, food and family.

The moment I saw the rows of vines and the rustic "Casa," I thought of Europe. Tuscany, to be exact. The setting is beautiful and the premises are lovely. These wines have won awards over the years, and I can recommend the whites in particular. Stunning facilities for a wedding or large gathering.

We booked ahead for a wine and desert tasting on Mother's Day. We checked in and were handed glasses of champagne immediately! The greeter David showed us to our table with a beautiful display of desserts and colorful wines. He was extremely pleasant and made us feel welcome and answered all of our questions. The deserts were amazing and the wines there have always been some of my favs. My mother and I had a wonderful time!

Casa Larga was our first stop on our second wine tour day. It's in the middle of Rochester, so very convenient. Our tasting was supposed to come with 5 pours, but I think by the time we left, I'd had 12 or 13. They had a great variety of wine, mostly whites, but everything from bubbly to dry to sweet. One of my favorite stops!!!

Hello Kihyland, thank you for stopping at Casa Larga Vineyards, we do appreciate your visit. Yes, we are convenient...south of Rochester NY and just north of NYS Thruway. We just celebrated 45 years of producing award winning wines here in the Finger Lakes wine region of New York State. We remember when there were less than 10 wineries in the Finger Lakes and now there are 400 wineries and 1,600 family owned vineyards. Our founders, Mr. and Mrs C. knew they were on to something! Come see us again when you are in the area. GO NY WINES!

Me and my wife had our wedding at Casa Larga in November of 2021. Everything went as planned and was an amazing night. Before we left the venue, our wedding planner asked awkwardly if we were going to tip the staff, and I assured them that we would figure it out and drop something off the next day when we picked everything else up. After the wedding we went to our hotel for the night and went through our cards, we quickly noticed we were missing money from two individuals in our wedding party. We verified with them it was $500 in total. Casa Larga has a card box policy, one of the members of our wedding party would count and go through the cards with our wedding planner and lock them in the office untill the end of the night. Our wedding planner grabbed the box of cards and went to find the specified person. One of the cards went missing and one was in the box with no money in it. We were assured when we signed the card box policy that it would be secured for a worry free night and that we didn't need a lock on the box. The next day when we went to get the rest of our things and talk with the staff, we asked if they had cameras in the bar area, and they told us no there are none in the room. While we grabbed the rest of our things we realized the next wedding they were setting up for, the card box was on the same table, in the same corner. Casa Larga was going to look into this and we havent heard anything back since. Our night was absolutely perfect otherwise, and we don't want anyone else to have this happen on there special day.

Went to buy a grape pie but they do not sell them this time of the season so decided to have a flight of wine. I was delighted to have a great wine tasting and great conversation with Lou. She was very friendly and very helpful in my selection of wine. Lou, I will be back very soon for more tastings!! Thank you!!!

My wife and I had an early anniversary celebration (CHILDLESS) @ Casa Larga where we were married 8 years ago and tried the new food truck. The food was amazing! It was gourmet sandwiches and we chose the sweet potato hash for a side. Add in the wine slushy and it made the perfect late lunch meal.

Most definitely looking forward to going back and trying out other menu items soon.

My fiancee and I stayed nearby at the Woodcliff Hotel and Spa recently (which was great), and decided to visit this vineyard for a tasting. We arrived approximately a half hour before the tasting room closed, and were told we were too late and there would not be enough time to sample any of their wines by an unpleasant and smug man working behind the counter. We assured him we would not be more than 10 minutes tops, as we have done tastings before and did not need any education on the types of wines we were sampling. He then grunted something under his breath and barely spoke to us during the 10 whole minutes it actually did take for us to do a tasting. The vineyard itself is beautiful and the wines they have are pretty good...it's just a shame that one person can ruin the whole experience for two people who just wanted to enjoy 10 minutes of wine together.

The place looks wonderful. We went there for a wedding that started at 5. After the ceremony it took an hour before we were seated. During this hour a tiny bar with three people served about 200 people. There was also a table, about 2'X3' that had some minimal appetizers.

Main course arrived at 9:30 (after intervening lousy tiny salad about two hours after the event started) . When we finally got the food -FOUR AND A HALF HOURS after the party started, it would not rise to the level of mediocre - overcooked unidentified piece of beef, two and half tiny potatoes, and three asparagus shoots.

While their winbe does rise to the mediocre level, their event planning is at best super miserable and more precisely atrocious.

I truly felt sorry or the young couple and their family - fantastic people that fell for the most miserable place.

If you are planing an event the nearest mcdonalds, burger king, or drug store would be much much better.

Lines. Right from the start you are in a line at this event. Paying to get in...why? Getting your free beer/wine that comes with your $10 entry. For the two food trucks (one with a 40 minute wait after you order). The wine is also $7 per glass...seriously??? It's a nice setting but the execution fails. Go elsewhere until they hire someone that knows how to execute on an event like this.

Please know that we are constantly reviewing and investigating new equipment and methods and that our pre party and post party meetings with staff and vendors occurs before and after each patio party, where we review all aspects of the night. Your comments will be shared at those meetings. Thank you for sending in and again, we are so very sorry you did not enjoy yourself.

We went to this local winery a few days ago with friends visiting from northwest Canada. Unfortunately, our experience was boring. The wines were excellent but the person pouring the wines did not explain or add anything about the wines. In fact, at one point she left us and reappeared later. I had to ask questions about each wine to learn their content (grape variety).
