Description:

Heron Hill Winery is nestled into a hillside overlooking scenic Keuka Lake...

Heron Hill Winery is nestled into a hillside overlooking scenic Keuka Lake in New York's Finger Lakes region. For over 35 years, Heron Hill has won many awards for its distinctive, elegant wines and continues to be at the forefront of cool climate winemaking. Establishing our heritage among some of the first vinifera wineries in the Finger Lakes, John and Josephine Ingle founded Heron Hill Winery in 1977. Through perseverance and long-term dedication to excellence in winemaking, Heron Hill Winery has become a world-class destination.

Heron Hill remains family-owned. For the Ingles, practicing sustainably is a way of life and means giving respect. Respect for the land in how we farm our estate vineyards, and respect for the consumer by offering wines with an authentic sense of place and by providing visitors with a friendly and informative experience.

Today, Heron Hill offers over 20 wine varieties; crisp and light Rieslings, aromatic dry Chardonnays, the winery's legendary Eclipse series, complex Pinot Noirs and Cabernet Francs, and specially crafted dessert wines.

What a view!

It was no wonder Heron Hill was voted a top ten tasting room in the world. The views of Keuka Lake were amazing! Prolly got a bonus point for that. The wines were solid, nothing... read more

Stopped here on the way to Niagara - lovely location with great views down across the lake. Given around 8 wines to taste ranging in price - but all were lacking in taste or body. I guess they will keep trying!

Heron Hill is a huge winery on Keuka Lake. Their tasting room is crazy and they have outdoor tastings when the weather is nicer... as well as outdoor dining. Their store is really cute and this place was busy, busy, busy. We weren’t overly impressed with their wines, but a lot of that may have been the super crazy environment... More

Excellent selection of wine. Particularly enjoyed their Cab Franc it was light, peppery, notes of tobacco. Pricing is reasonable for an excellent vintage. The view is spectacular. Highly recommend them for someone who likes dry reds.

Have not visited for several years but the wine prices have doubled and many are around $40 or more per bottle. The wines are well made but not worth the price. The tasting room is beautiful with absolutely stunning views of Keuka.

Thank you for taking the time to visit again. The only wines we are currently selling for over $40 are icewines. We have raised the price of a few red wines because we have had some very good vintages with lower yields, most of our white wines are between $14-20. More

Stopped here on a recent trip back to Central NY. Completed a sample of 5 wines; yum, and 3 spirits. The rep was very informative and pleasant. The wines were delish, although we were disappointed that a Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was not available for purchase at that location! We would have loved to have a bottle! Hopefully we can find...

Beautiful setting and building on lovely Lake Keuka! Tasting hosts friendly and knowledgeable. Wines all from local farmers/ vineyards and are more impressive the most in this area. Nice little cafe with pretty views... limited hours during non peak time of year. Love it. One of my favorites!
