About our winery:

Dedicated to excellence in winemaking in the Finger Lakes region since 1977. Journey through the rolling hills and discover our full portfolio of wines. Heron Hill is among the leaders in recognizing Riesling as the region's flagship varietal. Today Heron Hill makes six different cool climate Rieslings -- from dry, terroir-driven reserves to our ethereal icewines. Heron Hill Winery has become a coveted destination within New York for weddings, as well as casual, outdoor food and music events on the terrace of the seasonal Blue Heron Café. Heron Hill Winery was chosen as one of the ten most spectacular tasting rooms in the world by Travel + Leisure magazine! In addition to the magnificent vaulted tasting hall and winery overlooking vineyards on Keuka Lake, Heron Hill also has tasting rooms on the west side of Seneca Lake and on the west side Canandaigua Lake.

Three things to love about us:

More than 50,000 people visit the winery every year. Visitors enjoy Heron Hill’s Blue Heron Café, specializing in freshly made sandwiches, soups, and salads. The year is filled with great events that marry food, wine, music and other entertainment, too. Heron Hill hosts live music on its terrace or in the large event tent adjacent to the winery. Private parties and weddings are also held at the winery. Heron Hill is committed to making its winery a destination – a place where people want to come back time
and again, a place that is cocktail chatter and fodder for conversation around the water cooler. As the gateway to the Finger Lakes, Heron Hill is a source of enjoyment and contentment that will reside in
one’s memory for years to come.

What makes us unique:

Heron Hill’s grape grower and owner, John Ingle often says that Heron Hill has “boot prints in its vineyards, not tire tracks.” People maintain the vines at Heron Hill, not machines. This personal approach and commitment to quality is evident throughout every aspect of making, serving and selling Heron Hill’s wines.

Our awards:

Heron Hill has won many awards for its distinctive, elegant wines and continues to be at the forefront of Finger Lakes winemaking. Today Heron Hill makes over six styles of Riesling. Heron Hill's Ingle Vineyard Riesling 2002 won "Best of Show, White Wine" & Double Gold at the San Francisco International Wine Competition
