Viticulture & Vineyard Site

Sunrise Hill Vineyard, a picturesque landscape located on the western side of Cayuga Lake, is owned and operated by Bob and Kathy Ruis.  Here, 12 acres of eastern-facing vinifera grapes are grown.  The combination of soil, location and climate produce fruit packed with bright, focused flavor with a hint of mineral and spice.

Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

With its fruit forward profile, this Lemberger explodes with autumn spice on the nose and round fruit on the palate.  A medium bodied style, with a long lingering finish, makes this wine a perfect pairing with grilled meats with BBQ sauce, sweet sausage dishes, and sage rubbed pork loin.

Vintage Notes

Ever so gently, the spring of 2014 tip-toed in with a very enthusiastic welcome from both grape growers and the vines themselves.  The long and harsh winter – both in terms of temperatures and snowfall – reduced the potential crop yields early in the season.  With fewer initial clusters, vines were able to deliver a more focused flow of energy and nutrients to the remaining ripening fruit.  The Finger Lakes saw spring and summer days with temperatures regularly vacillating from cool to hot with intermittent showers, creating constant shifts and activity in the vineyards as our grapes inched towards maturity.  Each hand-harvested vineyard brought fruit to our winemakers that demonstrated playful acidity, promising flavors, and tremendous quality.
