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

Our newest single vineyard Dry Riesling appears a scintillating straw hued quartz in the goblet.  Resplendent citrus & lush tropical fruit aromas braced by succinct minerality tantalize the nose.  This sumptuous multi-faceted Riesling combines a bright crispness with a bursting, exuberant juiciness.  It delights the tongue!  We recommend this wine be paired with raw, cured or smoked fish as well as prosciutto, and arugula salad, pork schnitzel, and shrimp tempura.

Vintage Notes

Winter of 2018-19 was pretty mild, resulting in little to no bud damage and setting us up for a good year of growing to come.  2019 started with a pretty “by the books” finger lakes spring, with an on-time start to the growing season; no late frosts to hassle us and a reasonable amount of rainfall.  The growing season was warm but not hot, with moderate rain which tapering off by the fall to a nice mild harvest season.  The weather cooperated well and allowed the vines to achieve full ripeness and flavor development.  Overall, a solid growing season finished with a nice easy, harvest.
