Atwater Estate Vineyards

Located in the sunny, southeastern shore of Seneca Lake, we use quality estate-grown fruit to produce dynamic varietals and artful blends to please every palate. Located in the 'banana belt' of wine growing, we produce quality viniferas, innovative blends, sparkling and luscious dessert wines. Boasting a magnificent view of the lake, our comfortable tasting room welcomes you with an inviting and knowledgeable staff and includes many "Made in NY" items.
