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 entrees consisted of filet mignon, chicken madera and stuffed haddock and all were delicious along with the Ventosa wines.

This was our first time at Ventosa. We had a wonderful family experience and highly recommend visiting them for a wine tasting, lunch in their cafe, or a special occasion in their banquet room.

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.

Ventosa has a Mediterranean feel. It is the place to go for a casual lunch with a glass of great wine wile overlooking the vineyards.

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 deciding our choices, we were told to move down so that they could accomodate people that came in well after us. We walked out and chose not to give them any of our money.

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 delicious pizza we got there 2 years ago , so we ordered again, knowing that the menu was scaled back to 4 pizza choices and no add on or toppings list on the menu. What we got was a small pizza for 1 and it was cold in the middle on freezer burned on the outside crust. When we complained to "chef Ernesto" ( which in all actuality should be "chef Mike" for microwave) , he told us it was not microwaved. Considering the do not even own a pizza oven anymore, I highly doubt it as I have had my fair share of microwave pizza over the years. Do not expect fresh and be willing to pay nearly $12 for a personal pan frozen pizza if you go there.
