Surrounded by vineyards tumbling to the western shore of New York's Seneca Lake, Glenora Wine Cellars is a leader in the renaissance of regional American winemaking.
Glenora was founded in 1977 shortly after the passage of New York's Farm Winery Bill. Glenora achieved instant acclaim in wine circles when its initial vintage won several medals at the New York State Fair Commercial Wine Competition. Constantly expanding and refining it's product line, Glenora had, by the end of its first decade, grown from a farm winery to a commercial producer and from recognition as a top New York winery to recognition by The Wine Spectator as one of the world's top wineries.
Since its creation in 1977, Glenora has grown from an annual production of 5,000 cases to 40,000 in recent years. In 1987, the winery under took a major expansion to accommodate increased production of top quality champagnes and premium table wines using the finest grapes from New York's wine growing regions.
Glenora currently produces classic Vinifera wines from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Cabernet as well as Methode Champenoise sparkling wines. It is one of the largest producers of Vinifera and Methode Champenoise wines in the Eastern United States. The wines are principally marketed in the Northeast.
The largest plantings of Vinifera grapes in the Finger Lakes lie within the vineyard sites of Seneca Lake and are available to Glenora's winemaker. In addition, we have contracts with the finest wine grape growers on Long Island to supplement the Finger Lakes' crop and insure a successful vintage.
Glenora Wine Cellars has long been a company with traditional roots, a vision for the future and innovative plans to make that vision a reality.
