  • Americana Vineyards

    Americana Vineyards

    Americana Vineyards tasting room and gift shop used to be a functioning swing barn in the 1820s, about five miles away from its current location. It was rescued from demolition, meticulously dismantled and rebuilt at its new address on East Covert Road. With a history like that, you can imagine the attention to detail that goes into our wine making!

  • Six Mile Creek Vineyard

    Six Mile Creek Vineyard

    The vineyard has grown to a total of 6 acres planted in several white varietals: Chardonnay, Riesling, Cayuga White, Vidal Blanc,  Seyval Blance and Vignoles.  While Chardonnay struggles, the others do reasonably well in this unlikely location—Vignoles and Seyval best of all.  The winery grows no red varietals in its vineyard due to the fact that winter temperatures at Six Mile are more extreme than those of vineyards situated closer to the lakes.
