Owner description: Heron Hill Winery is nestled into a hillside overlooking scenic Keuka Lake in New York's Finger Lakes region. For over 35 years, Heron Hill has won many awards for its distinctive, elegant wines and continues to be at the forefront of cool climate winemaking. Establishing our heritage among some of the first vinifera wineries in the Finger Lakes, John and Josephine Ingle founded Heron Hill Winery in 1977. Through perseverance and long-term dedication to excellence in winemaking, Heron Hill Winery has become a world-class destination. Heron Hill remains family-owned. For the Ingles, practicing sustainably is a way of life and means giving respect. Respect for the land in how we farm our estate vineyards, and respect for the consumer by offering wines with an authentic sense of place and by providing visitors with a friendly and informative experience. Today, Heron Hill offers over 20 wine varieties; crisp and light Rieslings, aromatic dry Chardonnays, the winery's legendary Eclipse series, complex Pinot Noirs and Cabernet Francs, and specially crafted dessert wines. They are celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2017!

We love this winery! Each year, for my daugthter's birthday, we go wine tasting. Heron Hill is a must stop. The people who work there are very friendly and they know their wines. Ed was our host this time, and he was great. We told him what kind of wines we liked (all 5 of us have different tastes), and he suggested perfectly. The winery is beautiful and the scenery is outstanding; overlooking Keuka Lake. I would recomend this winery to everyone. Their dessert wines are among the best I have ever tried!

My wife and I spent a pleasant evening this last summer attending the wedding of our dear friend's daughter. Not only is the setting above Keuka Lake beautiful, but also the winery itself. Both inside and outside it is a warm and inviting setting. Living in Chicago after having lived in Dansville, NY and with my folks in Bristol Springs, NY, we were well aware of the high quality of New York State wines. The tasting at the wedding confirmed that Heron Hill produces the best of the best in wines. We greatly enjoyed sampling and we took many bottles back with us to Illinois. For a beautiful trip to the country, a breathtaking view across the vinyards to Keuka Lake, and excellent well crafted wines, you can't miss when you stop at Heron Hill.

The setting is fantastic with amazing view of Keuka Lake. The wines were all fantastic along with the decor. The gentleman helping with the tasting was very friendly and knowledgeable about the wines we tasted. The tasting price was very reasonsable, $5 to taste 6 wines. Overall I would say its worth stopping by this vineyard, I had no regrets!

Took our Grown Children and their Significant others for a wine weekend get-a-away. One of our final stops was at Heron Hill, and by far it was our best. Ed, our host was attentive, and provided an excellent tasting with a knowledgeable commentary on all the wines we tasted. The view and the interior surroundings only added to the experience. If you are planning on a wine tasting experience make sure you include Heron Hill on your Tastings Trip. We did, and it made our trip with our adult children one to remember, and Don't forget to say Hi to Ed!
