Welcome to NY State's Warm West Coast! Bordered by Lake Ontario to the North, Niagara Escarpment to the South and Niagara River to the West, our climate is moderate and warm. An early spring and long autumn season help us produce gapes that add depth of flavor in our wines. Warm days and cool nights create wines with a balanced ripe fruit and acidity.
Our climate allows us to grow and ripen a range of grape varietals, including but not limited to Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Saperavi. The wineries of Niagara Wine Country are all grower/producers of vinifera grapes and wines.
The Wineries of Niagara Wine Country are nestled below the Niagara Escarpment amidst a landscape of vineyards, farm fields and orchards stretching to the shores of Lake Ontario to the North. A short drive from Buffalo, Niagara Falls or Rochester brings you to a wine country experience. We are open year round!
