Atwater Estate Vineyards

An Unforgettable Finger Lakes Wine Experience

About the winery
Atwater Estate Vineyards is a family-owned winery located on eighty scenic acres on the eastern side of Seneca Lake. Our unique site boasts a micro-climate ideal for grape production, and we are intimately connected to every vine we grow. This hands-on knowledge allows us to lovingly cultivate the grapes in our vineyards with precision, balance, and high quality control. As a result, the winemaking team can create thoughtful wines in a variety of styles with the use of neutral barrels, skin and stem inclusion, and sparkling offerings.

History & Geography
Our vineyards are located in the southern portion of Seneca Lake, affectionately referred to as the “banana belt” region of the Finger Lakes. This area is a micro-climate within a macro-climate, warmer than any other spot in the region, allowing more challenging varieties the opportunity to grow and ripen. We are committed to providing sustainable culture practices that enhance the quality of the fruit and the earth it stems from. Seneca Lake’s massive depth of over 600 feet retains heat, keeping the surrounding soils warmer in winter and cooler in spring, protecting delicate varieties that would otherwise freeze. In fact, the uniqueness of the soil, climate and growing conditions, or terroir, have earned “Seneca Lake” a position as a unique wine growing appellation region apart from the Finger Lakes.
