We're glad to hear you enjoyed our wines and the experience we offer here! Our Nosedive Port is one of our most popular wines, and our sweet drinkers that love Niagara love our Jenny White! Can't wait to have you back in.

This winery has some of the best red wines in the Finger Lakes and it is a good value for the number of tastings you receive. The day we visited they had people offering clothing and other accessories which made the visit more enjoyable for...More

We were so close to missing Barnstormer before they closed on the day we visited, but they remained open to do our tasting and we had such a great conversation with the staff. They are very personable and I felt like they had a better...More

Everyone at Barnstormer has the opportunity to work with the grapes to the bottle and you're correct, in a smaller winery setting this allows us all to feel very proud and connected with our wines. Thank you for the excellent review of our wines and...More

Another great place for reds! The owner (Scott?) followed us in and was very pleasant and helpful. It's a more cozy spot - especially love the wood bar for tastings. It's a little pricey for Finger Lakes standards, but well worth it. After our tasting,...More

We ALWAYS make a point to stop at Barnstormer. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The wines are great. Jenny white is a favorite for summer. Also purchased several reds to enjoy at home. Barnstormer is a must stop on the trail.

Server was excellent and really knew the wines, grapes, vineyards, etc. We loved the Syrah- rich and noble, but pricey. Dry reds were complex and aged in oak, which made them taste awesome. Newer winery and do not yet have their own grapes. Will return...More

We’ve driven past barnstormer a few times, but hadn’t gone in until this year. We were missing out. Bartender was great and the wines are really good. We’ll definitely be back next year!

Excellent wines, friendly and knowledgeable staff. My favorite winery on Seneca Lake. I especially liked the cabernet franc and semi-dry chardonnay, but even the sweet wines were very good. Stop here. You won't be disappointed!
