This place seems stuck in time, as the oldest wine maker in the region that isn't necessarily a bad thing. The museum is a bit outdated (see the USSR flag) but it's cute. The tastings are free and the store is well stocked. Overall a good stop on a tour of the wine region! Their bubbly was as good as expected!
My wife and I came here 20 years ago during our honeymoon. We came back this week to celebrate our anniversary. They were great 20 years ago and they have maintained that quality. Spumante and the peach chardonnay are amazing. If you are able to go during harvest season, check out their tours. One of the oldest and best winery's in the Finger Lakes. Highly recommend.
