Attraction details
Owner description: At Rooster Hill Vineyards we set our sights high to grow the very best grapes to make the highest quality wines. We take special care in determining the processes we use to make our wines which have earned us high marks by publications including Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast. On our Savine Estate, 4,000 feet of drainage tile is installed to ensure grapes have the best possible conditions to develop their root structure. From these techniques, we can harvest quality grapes that balance between flavor, texture, acid and tannin structure. We truly believe wine is made in the vineyard before it enters our state-of-the-art fermentation process and then control aged in our superlative French and American oak barrels. Enjoy our wines in a variety of ways by visiting our vineyards for tours and tasting room experiences, through our exclusive wine club, at our several events or through purchase on our website. After your visit or first taste, we think you'll know how exquisite our wines are and why we savor, favor and honor them.

“Excellent Wine”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We visited approximately 30 wineries along the Keuka and Seneca Lake Wine Trails. For our money, this was one of the best quality vineyards. Their Reislings, Gewertzs., and Traminettes are spectacular. They are on par with NAPA, Sonoma and Washington state - where we have visited as well. Don't miss this jewel on the east side of Keuka Lake.

“a Penn (Yan) and Pencil review”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Last year, we visited, oh, 10-12 wineries and brought home wines from most of them. This year, we skipped the rest of them and stuck with our favorite, Rooster Hill, picking up a case and a half of the Silver Pencil and a half case of Rosemont Red.
