Mark Wagner founded Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars and has consistently produced award-winnning wines with his own grapes since the 1990 vintage. Mark's family has been in the Seneca Lake grape business since the time of his great grandfather, and since the 1940s has produced vitis labrusca and French-American hybrid grapes for sale to big wine producers like Taylor and Widmer. As the giants began to stumble and estate wineries emerged in the wake of the Farm Winery Act of 1976, Mark took over the family business in 1978 and shifted the emphasis of the family farm to cultivating premium vitis vinifera grapes to supply the budding new wineries. Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars was the logical culmination of generations of grape-growing knowledge and decades of Mark's viticultural experience. The soaring Greek Revival building, which was designed by Ithacan native Bruce Corson, opened on August 30, 1992, and offers visitors unparalleled views of more than 25 miles of water on Seneca Lake. Lamoreaux Landing is aptly named after a 19th century steamboat landing on Seneca Lake, and the pilings from this dock can still be seen below the vineyards down on the lake. However, this connection to the deep waters of Seneca Lake extends way beyond a geographical namesake or signature view. In the winter months, radiant heat from the lake insulates nearby vineyards, protecting the vines even on the coldest days when the air temperature in the region drops below zero degrees Farenheit, which is cold enough to kill delicate European vines like Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Merlot. The original vineyards are planted on lands recognized as far back as the 1800s as ideal for grape cultivation. Superior soil content, gently sloping hills, unusual prevailing wind patterns, ample sunlight, and proximity to the deep waters of Seneca Lake are all important ingredients that contribute to the production of Lamoreaux Landing's premium estate-bottled wines.

Probably the best value in New York State Riesling both the Dry and Semi Dry from Lamoreaux Landing have always been amazing. Light-bodied and totally crisp with green apple melon and light apricot notes.

A signature Lamoreaux Landing Riesling presenting intense notes of peach, apricot and lemon in harmony with an edge of minerality. A smooth palate is highlighted by lemon and green apple with a steely finish. Pair with meats, cream sauces, or mild Asian cuisine. - Winery

Scents of passion fruit and citrus give way to tart green apple flavors in this lean, attractive riesling. In texture, even in personality, there’s energy and drive as warm and pure as a sunbeam. This would make a fine aperitif, or pair it with pad thai noodles.

Apricots explode from a glass of this semi-dry offering. With other notable aromas of citrus, red apple, and melon, this beautifully balanced Riesling reveals hints of honeydew melon on the palate before finishing with a rush of white peaches, which linger. Enjoy this wine on its own or pair it with spicy cuisine, salty dishes such as cheeses, or fresh fruit. - Winery

Intense stone-fruit and honeysuckle notes merge seamlessly with hints of smoke and crushed stone. While ripe and rich, it’s also penetratingly dry, with juicy fruit flavors. It’s gorgeously composed with striking lime-juice acidity and a savory, minerally tone that lingers.
