New Vines

Two of our wines were entered in the 2016 New York Wine and Food Classic, which awards the Governor's Cup each year to the best wine in NY. Our Gruner Veltliner was awarded a Silver Medal, and our Dry Riesling was awarded a Gold Medal.

With just one acre of grapes, training every vine, managing pest control, and being in the vineyard every day affords us a level of control not possible with large operations.  We also benefit greatly from the cooperative nature of the Finger Lakes Wine Industry.  Equipment, ideas, and honest feedback are shared freely, helping all of us become better grape growers and winemakers.

We definitely fit the category of a "Boutique Winery." Our wine production has been in the area of 200 cases each of the last few years, and has been slow to increase due to the harsh winters of late. Many winemakers say that it is harder to make small batches of wine than to make very large ones.  We embrace this challenge, and see benefits of an operation that we manage from vine to bottle.

"The Marquette Rose' will open the minds of those who have never encountered the grape."

Our wines are a reflection of our beautiful Finger Lakes setting. The cool climate here results in crisp acidity in our whites, and fruit-forwardness in our reds. Vintage variation is expected, and leads to the excitement of each new wine's release!

First Time Awards:

"Todd's wines are one of the hidden gems of the Finger Lakes; the wines I share with my family and friends."

                                                          Scott Osborn, President and Co-owner of Fox Run Vineyards

"Although the bed and breakfast aspect of New Vines ranks among the highest quality accommodations you will find in the Finger Lakes, the wines New Vines crafts are also among the best examples of Seneca Lake terroir you will find."

"Todd's love and appreciation of local bounty guide him to produce superior wines!"
