General Information

Bagley’s is known for it’s laid back attitude and unpretentious approach to wine. As one of the oldest wineries along Seneca lake we are very proud of our unique history. We opened our doors in 1980 and have been growing, producing and selling wine from our 40 acre farm in Hector. Our founder Dave Bagley was passionate about Finger Lakes wine and loved sharing his wines with many visitors over the years. Sadly, Dave passed away in 2008, but his legacy lives on as his daughter Brittany has followed in his footsteps. Today Bagley’s is female owned, and operated with a small family-like crew that works very hard to produce delicious wines to share with their customers.

About Us

Bagley’s Poplar Ridge Vineyards was born after our late owner Dave Bagley decided to stop making wine for others and start his own business.  Dave had worked for many of the still active wineries here in the Finger Lakes for a few years before deciding it was time to do it for himself.  In 1977, he bought a beautiful chunk of land right here in Valois and got to work planting 20 acres of vineyards and making future plans.  By 1980 he had built himself a winery and very shortly after, a reputation.  It didn’t take long for every stranger who walked through the door to leave as a friend.  Dave spent 28 years creating his dream of a winery including filling it with delicious wines, outgoing employees, chocolate lab puppies, and classic rock and roll.  He could always be found sitting on the corner stool or outside in a rocking chair, surrounded by big chocolate labs, while drinking champagne and making friends with every customer.  When Dave abruptly passed in 2008, his daughter Brittany stepped up and took over the business.  She has since worked hard to keep Dave’s spirit alive in both the wine and the good times that are had on any day of the week here at Bagley’s Poplar Ridge Vineyards.

Our Wines

“Wine Without Bull”

When my father dreamed of his ideal winery he felt that inclusion would be a integral part of our brand. The wine industry has traditionally been a prententious industry that made many feel as though they couldn’t participate if they didn’t know how to swirl their glass properly, or pick out the ‘fine leather’ notes. Dave made it a point to make sure that everyone felt welcome in his tasting room, whether you pulled in the driveway in a pick up or a beamer, you would be treated with the same respect and kindness as the next person. He made many friends over the years with this philosphy and we know that he made an impression on everyone that met him. 15 years later and a day doesn’t go by that we don’t hear a story from a visitor about Dave Bagley.

At the end of the day we are just farmers that make a delicious product, and we are humbled and lucky to be able to share it with you!
