Beautiful exterior you feel like you are at an Italian Villa, wine is exquisite both reds and whites, brick oven pizzas are the bomb.

We had been out on the east side of the lake touring wineries and this was our last stop of the day. Ventrosa is very beautiful with wonderful views. We did a wine tasting with Ivory. What a delightful young lady. She knew the wines well and had very unique ways of describing them. We enjoyed our tasting with her... More

There is lots of space to sit and relax and the staff is easy going and fun! I am definitely putting this on my list of wineries to... More

Wine is very good and the tasting price is quite reasonable. Very generous pours. Staff was very knowledgeable about wines. The outside deck and views of the lake with the vineyards in front of you were spectacular. Inside was nice but very much like other wineries.

Wonderful venue for a wedding. Out door porch is lovely as it overlooks the grapevines and lake - beautiful place to take pictures of fall colors. We... More

We purchased a $5 flight for sampling on a rainy day in upstate NY at Ventosa. The flight includes five tastings. you could buy up for a souvenir glass, but I have enough of those. The wine connoisseur at the bar was especially attentive, telling us exactly what to expect in each wine, and then allowing us a generous taste.... More

We had a group of people , all ordered different things and all were delicious. Service was great. You can taste wines of the region. Plenty of room for receptions and special events! The deck overlooks vineyards and beautiful Seneca Lake. Easy to get to on 96A.

We started with pizza since word on the street gave rave reviews. We were not disappointed! Best pizza I've had. Then we tried a couple of wines and loved the Rieslings. I... More
