Our Wines

N. Kendall wines was founded in 2011 by Finger Lakes native Nathan Kendall.  He is an internationally trained Winemaker who has experience in Sonoma, Willamette Valley, Waipara (NZ), Adelaide Hills (AUS), and Mosel (GER), although the plan was always to return to the shores of Seneca Lake. His passion is to create wines in an old world style using quality grapes and minimal intervention.

Having traveled throughout the world focusing on cool climate regions and varietals, Nathan’s focus is on Riesling, Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, and sparkling wine.

All lots are carefully sorted, and the pristine fruit then undergoes long spontaneous fermentations. Post fermentation, the wine ages for months on the gross lees to enhance the texture. Wines are then carefully racked, never fined, and gently filtered before bottling.

We feel the best way to express the unique terroirs of each of our individual sites is by using low intervention winemaking.
