Cultivating Excellence, Vintage by Vintage

In 1992, Mel and Dorothee Goldman’s love for the Finger Lakes led them to fulfill their dream of planting a vineyard on former Taylor Wine Co. land. After retiring in 1997, they focused on growing Riesling and Pinot Noir vines, eventually impressing European critics with their wines.

Today, Keuka Lake Vineyards boasts 40 acres with six varietals, each vintage rooted in their original passion for the Finger Lakes.

In 2023, we were in the first group of New York vineyards to be certified as a New York Sustainable Winegrower. 

We are passionately dedicated to protecting and nourishing the Keuka Lake ecosystem, and that passion informs all of our decisions in the vineyard.


Tastings & Tours

We are open year-round for tastings; however, our off-season space is much smaller than our 200-year-old barn. Reservations are highly suggested, click below to learn more.


Current Releases

The interaction of our temperate climate with the soil and topography of the land surrounding Keuka Lake, gives our vineyard sites their unique terroir.

Wine Spectator’s Finger Lakes Review

Keuka Lake Vineyards has been quietly putting out some stellar bottlings, led here by the top-scoring, small-production Falling Man Vineyard white. With such impressive offerings, as well as notable values, this winery can now be included among the Finger Lakes’ elite producers.

Elaine Chukan Brown: A return to hybrids

I enjoyed the Keuka Lake, Turkey Run Vineyard Vignoles 2019, grown in the gravels of New York state’s Finger Lakes AVA. It’s beautifully aromatic, with a round palate of orchard and stone fruits mixed through with pithiness, bursting acidity and a silky texture.

On the south east end of Keuka Lake, nestled within homes, a small woodland, and Silvernail Road, where passersby pause for polite conversation, lies a particular vineyard owned by Keuka Lake Vineyards (KLV).
