Elaine's Vineyard

The Elaine's vineyard selection is a tribute to the late Elaine Hazlitt - a pioneer in the Finger Lakes wine industry, whose constant smile and unwavering strength provided inspiration to all who knew her.

The vineyard overlooks the eastern shores of Seneca Lake, and has a slight slope.  Vineyard Manager, John Santos is well known in the region as an innovator who has a deep understanding of the vines and vineyards he manages.  He employs a "balanced vine" strategy in order to ensure appropriate yields, curtail excessive vigor, and deliver pinot noir grapes with intense flavors.
