Our vineyards were established in 1995, with a small planting of Riesling and Cayuga White grapes on the Fosterville Road site. In 1998 we added our first Chambourcin vines. Over the next several years more Riesling, Chambourcin and Pinot Noir were planted. In 2003 and 2004 we planted Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Riesling on a site on the southwest side of Owasco Lake. This gives us a total of three acres of vineyards. The small vineyards allow us to carefully tend the vines and harvest by hand, producing high quality wine grapes.
We broke ground for the new Aurelius Winery building and tasting room on Fosterville Road in the summer of 2002 and opened our doors in May of 2003. Our tasting room offers a cool and relaxing atmosphere for you to enjoy our fine Finger Lakes wines. You'll find personal and friendly hosts and you can meet the winemaker just about every weekend. Tours of the winery and vineyard are always available. We enjoy sharing wine stories with many of our home winemaking customers, and provide information for those interested in growing grapes or making wine.
