Viticulture & Vineyard Site

Structured and harmonious, yet strong and elegant, our Davis Vineyard is a spectacular representation of quality grape-growing in the Finger Lakes.  Hand-planted by Phil Davis' father in 1991 and our oldest vines about a quarter-mile off of the eastern shore of Seneca Lake on Howard Gravelly Loam, this 5 ½ acre site is perfectly suited to produce lively, old-world style wines.

Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

More than just your casual picnic quaff, the latest release of the Davis Vineyard Dry Riesling is summer sophistication in a glass.  With notes of key lime pie on the nose and a mineral driven burst of lime-y citrus on the palate this wine lingers with a distinctive lemon curd finish.  Pair with Waldorf Salad, lime cured ceviche, lemon peppered breast of chicken, or traditional strudel.

Vintage Notes

Winter in 2017 was again unexpectedly, and a little nervewrackingly, mild (we kept waiting for the other shoe to drop).  After the drought of 2016 I think we all welcomed the rains of early spring 2017 but when the wet continued into late spring…  then early summer… then midsummer… enough was enough.  Just when everyone felt that all was lost mid-July dried right up, temperatures soared, and we were finally blessed with Summer with a capital “S”.  The vines went wild!  In October -mid-harvest- it still felt like high summer.  Harvest just kept going and going with everyone reporting larger than normal yields and I think we were all a little more than pleasantly surprised by the truly astonishing qualities we were finding.  Look to whites from 2017 to be vibrantly expressive and reds to be stately and sophisticated.
