Winning a Best of Class Award is an honor, and we congratulate our winemaker, Michael Reidy, and the vineyard team for such a fantastic accomplishment. In addition, White Stag and 2020 Merlot also took home gold medals. Click here to see the complete list of awards
Schooner White is a Finger Lakes blend comprised of our estate-grown Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gewürztraminer. You get notes of rose petals and lemon-lime when you swirl it in your glass. The wine has bright, melon, and citrus fruit flavors, with a touch of raw honey. We love to pair this wine with fresh seafood, a green salad, chicken or pork with cream sauces, and South-East Asian dishes. Schooner White is 11.5% alcohol with a residual sugar of 1.1%. We produced 499 cases, and it retails for $15.99 at either winery location.
