Vineyard partners of Barnstormer
Sustainable agriculture is a cornerstone of our brand and we have teamed up with six different growers on Seneca Lake. The Finger Lakes is a special place and we intend to do our part to keep it that way. Each growing site is unique and is expressed eventually through the wines themselves that we make from each block. Being a small production winery here at Barnstormer, we have the ability to really focus on small acreage plantings of different grape varietals. With a heavy focus on Riesling, Cabernet Franc and Blaufränkisch, we have sought out growers who are able to grow exceptional examples of these grapes. We pick the majority of our fruit by hand and then do an additional round of hand sorting back at the winery to ensure only the highest quality clusters go into our fermenters. We our proud to call these families our vineyard partners!
