We are a small farm winery, located on the Westside of Keuka Lake, in the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Customers who visit Azure Hill Winery are served with individual attention by the owners/winemakers, while tasting some of the finest handcrafted wines in the area. Tastings start with details about our wines, and the winemaking processes, the region, grape growing, and a variety of topics.

The site was chosen for the beautiful view of Keuka lake and it's bluff, as well as the rolling hills, and excellent soil content. Established in 2006, seven rows of Riesling were planted by hand, and over the years Riesling vineyard has approximately doubled. Grapes from these vines are used for our most popular Sparkling Brut Riesling made in the traditional méthode champenoise style, and our estate Rieslings. Recently 2 additional blocks of red grape vinifera vines - Zweigelt and Saperavi, were planted along Gallagher Road.

Azure Hill Winery produces Rieslings, New York Blends, and Red wines from estate grown grapes, Finger Lakes and New York regions. The first vintages produced for sale were the 2010 and 2011 Rieslings and were released in 2012.


Azure Hill Riesling - 2012 Winner of a silver medal - Grand Harvest Awards competition 2013 and a bronze medal. 2013 New York State Fair Commercial Wine Competition.
