Family owned farm winery, producing Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Vidal Ice, and several bordeaux style red wines. Overlooking historic vineyards, with a delightful tasting room experience. In 1991, we purchased historic vineyards on the east side of Seneca Lake. A long line of venerable vintners spent years researching the quality of these lands. We followed in their footsteps by growing wines in the same historic vineyards that served Gold Seal Vineyards so well in the past. History became our best teacher, for conditions on the rolling hillsides above Seneca Lake proved ideal for growing and harvesting premium grapes and subsequently crafting heavenly wines. In just a few short years, our boutique winery began to make history with a prized selection of award-winning wines. Our wines continue to reap honors and critical acclaim on the wine circuit, but we've only just begun to show our potential. We plan to move into the history of the future, with the great vineyards of the world, bringing much deserved recognition to the new world-class wines of the Finger Lakes. From ripe, richly flavored grapes we produce premium wines - each year making slightly more wine which is better than the preceding vintage. Our first crush, in 1993, yielded only 800 cases, which was quickly discovered and sold out in just 12 short weeks. We now produce about 6500 cases, allowing us to bring wine to you in more locations. We always encourage you to visit the winery, drink in the view, and enjoy the current vintage. Tour our 30 plus acres of vineyards, expanding to 40 acres over the next few years. Learn how we carefully nurture the fruit of the vine through the fall and winter, and into summer, in a way that allows the best features of that fruit to show through in the finished wine. The wines are made and sold in renovated barns. The white wines are made in stainless steel tanks, allowing temperature control of fermentation and cellaring, and the red wines and Chardonnay are made in oak barrels - primarily American Oak. We spend many hours tasting the wines, both to follow their progress, and to assess the blends. We believe that the hands-on, vineyard based approach to our wines results in a superior wine finished in the bottle. You can tour our facility, often including a visit with someone from the winemaking team, and often including samples of the current vintage from barrels or tanks. Read less

Great green apple and starfruit notes dominate on the nose and palate of this crisp, dry New York white. Light- to medium-bodied and very fresh, the Standing Stone Dry Vidal is terrific with grilled chicken or poached fish.

Vidal is a French hybrid of Ugni Blanc and Seyval Blanc and is much prized by the growers of the eastern United States and Canada for both its winter hardiness and its ability to produce delicious wines ranging from dry to late harvest sweet. This delightful example from Standing Stone Vineyards is dry, but a touch of oak smooths the crisp acidity, allowing the fruit to show its ripe tropical flavors. Serve with seafood, Mexican, or Asian dishes or sip with hors d'oeuvres or while weeding the garden.

Crisp and clean, with ripe tropical flavors. the Vidal grape is a descendant of the Ugni Blanc (Trebbiano in Italy) and serves as the base for this delightful wine. A portion of the wine was aged in older oak barrels, smoothing out the crisp palate and making the mouth smooth and full, but austere. Serve this wine with grilled fish and cilantro, or try it with Chinese take out food to jazz up a weeknight meal.
