Swedish Hill Vineyard:
Family-owned and operated by Dick and Cindy Peterson, Swedish Hill is one of the largest wineries in the region.

Family-owned and operated by Dick and Cindy Peterson, Swedish Hill is one of the largest wineries in the region. After 20 years of growing and selling grapes to area wineries, the Petersons crushed their first grapes in 1985 and opened Swedish Hill Winery in 1986. Just 1,300 cases were produced that year; this year we produced over 60,000 cases of award-winning wines and champagnes. Swedish Hill is recognized as one of the top award-winning wineries in New York State, having won state, national and international acclaim. In 1997, the Petersons opened a second winery, Goose Watch, also on Cayuga Lake. The emphasis at Goose Watch is on the unusual, featuring a selection of wines that are not very common in other Finger Lakes wineries, such as Viognier, Pinot Gris, Melody, Diamond, Merlot and Lemberger. A complete list of current offerings including tasting notes can be found on the wine catalog page, where you can also order Swedish Hill wines online . Read less

Swedish Hill Winery Blue Waters Meritage Finger Lakes 750ML

Our latest addition to the great value Blue Waters series is Meritage, a blend of 42% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Franc, and 27% Cabernet Sauvignon. This complex wine is a blend of 2004, 2005 and 2006 vintages, and offers ripe berry fruits, with a balanced oak level that is noticeable but not overpowering. Compare it to any other Meritage from the West Coast or any French Bordeaux that costs even twice as much, and prepare to be surprised! - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
