“We decided to enter the wine business because we believe that the Finger Lakes region can grow wines that are among the best in the world.”
Tom & Marti Macinski, Owners

In 1991, they 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 their 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, their boutique winery began to make history with a prized selection of award-winning wines. their wines continue to reap honors and critical acclaim on the wine circuit, but they’ve only just begun to show their potential. They 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. Their first crush, in 1993, yielded only 800 cases, which was quickly discovered and sold out in just 12 short weeks.

They now produce about 8000 cases, allowing them to bring wine to you in more locations. They always encourage you to visit the winery, drink in the view, and enjoy the current vintage. Tour their 41 acres of vineyards. 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. They spend many hours tasting the wines, both to follow their progress, and to assess the blends. They believe that the hands-on, vineyard based approach to their wines results in a superior wine finished in the bottle. You can tour their facility, often including a visit with someone from the winemaking team, and often including samples of the current vintage from barrels or tanks.
