Heron Hill Winery, world-class wine, ambiance and experience. Heron Hill Winery is nestled into a hill overlooking scenic Keuka Lake in New York’s Finger Lakes region. For over 30 years the winery has set the highest standards for wine quality, customer satisfaction and tasting room experience. Since its first vintage in 1977, Heron Hill has steadily grown from a small 5,000 case winery that only made white wines into a dynamic 20,000 case production facility and entertainment destination for more than 50,000 people every year. Heron Hill’s grape grower and owner, John Ingle often says that Heron Hill has “boot prints in its vineyards, not tire tracks.” People maintain the vines at Heron Hill, not machines. This personal approach and commitment to quality is evident throughout every aspect of making, serving, and selling Heron Hill’s wines. These guiding principles have remained constant through the years – from hand-maintaining the vineyards to hand-harvesting grapes to offering educational and enjoyable tastings and hosting events that combine food, wine, and entertainment. Today, Heron Hill offers nearly 20 wine varieties; crisp and light Rieslings, aromatic dry Chardonnays, the winery’s legendary Eclipse series, spicy, exotic Pinot Noirs and Cabernet Francs, and our winemaker’s specially crafted dessert wines. During the past nearly 30 years, Heron Hill has won many awards for its distinctive, elegant wines and continues to be at the forefront of Finger Lakes winemaking. In 2006, Heron Hill opened a satellite tasting room and gift shop on the West side of Seneca Lake. Located on Route 14 in Himrod, the new facility exemplifies everything Heron Hill, from the customer service to the elegant wines.

Delicious, mild red table wine. The real character comes with its slightly smoky finish and autumnal taste in you mouth. At $10 a bottle, this is a fantastic New York rd wine.

A blend of vinifera and French hybrid grapes, this medium-bodied, dry red is herbal and berry in nature with hints of plum, cherry and oak. Heron Hill shows some finesse with this blend, one of only a few on the market, specially produced to complement full-flavored game bird dishes.

A dry, medium to full-bodied red, with a brilliant ruby color. The blending of various vinifera and hybrid grapes gives this wine complexity and smoothness, with herbal and black cherry essences.
