Welcome to Barnstormer Winery!
Located in a historic barn, the building in which our winery resides is well over 150 years old. Just like the Barnstormer pilots of the 1920′s, we make it our mission to entertain and provide our guests with an unforgettable experience. Visit us on Seneca Lake, just 4 miles north of Watkins Glen on Highway Route 14.
Averaging an annual production of 2000 cases, we offer a wide array of wines using 100% Finger Lakes grapes sourced from some of the finest vineyards around Seneca and Cayuga Lake. From red, white and sweet wines, you’ll be sure to find something you love. Our newly renovated winery maintains a lot of the charm you would expect to find in a rustic barn. We incorporate that design into our laid back tasting room where you can relax, enjoy great wines and experience a slice of the Finger Lakes wine region that you will be sure to remember.
We currently offer 16 wines for our 2013 and 2014 vintages. As a small batch, boutique style winery, we produce limited amounts of wine each year. We only sell from our Tasting Room at this time! Some of our favorite wines include the Sangiovese Rosé, Semi-Dry Riesling, Cabernet Franc, 2014 Riesling Ice Wine and Angel’s Share (100% Vignoles). We offer a 2009 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French Oak as well that is an absolute must try. Our 2013 Dry Riesling (91 cases) won us a Double Gold in the NYS Commercial Wine Competition along with a rating of 86 in Wine Spectator, our first major publication review.
We often hold live music here and do two concert series throughout the year. The next one is our 2015 Summer Concert Series which you can find more information about under our “Events” Tab at the top of the website page.
If you come hungry, don’t worry. We have you covered. There are local cheeses, cured meats, snacks and beverages available to build your own picnic to go (see the tab above on the website page). Our selections are always changing throughout the seasons so stop on by to try something new each time. We offer Cheese & Charcuterie boards for $12.00!
Craft beers are available to sample as well from local brewers.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
