of Our Award Winning Winery
2019 New York Riesling Winery of the Year.
Saturdays, & Sundays in season at 4 pm by appointment
Colloca Estate Winery, on the beautiful shores of Little Sodus Bay on Lake Ontario, is now offering tours of the award winning Lake Effect Vineyard® … New York’s Riesling Winery of 2019.
The vineyard won the award in this year’s New York International Wine Competition held recently in New York City.
The Tasting Room on the estate is open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. But weekend visitors can make a day of it with a tour of the magnificent 103-acre estate.
Visitors learn about the micro-climate that makes the North coast of America along the Lake Ontario shoreline cool in the evening summers and warm in the long winters… ideal for Riesling. Just like the Finger Lakes do for the wineries dotting the surrounding hills, Lake Ontario does the same … but on a grander scale.
The “terroir” as it is known and the special glacial geography make conditions for this part of New York among the best in the Northeast for making great wines on the Great Lakes.
During this intimate guided visit, you’ll take in the million dollar views of our secluded nine-hundred feet of unobstructed waterfront, see the progress that we have made on our various buildings, and enjoy a tasting of our current releases of approximately 10 wines.
Tours are held weekly at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. They’re $15.00 a person – but in addition to including a wine tasting (valued at $7.00) you get to keep the glass (a $5.00 deal) and you’ll get a coupon for $5 off a bottle of wine from the tasting room … $17 in swag!
