WINE WITH A VIEW
Established in 2009 as a vine-to-wine facility, we pride ourselves in contributing to the Finger Lakes as a wine region on the rise. “Where the good life demands grape views!”
With the purchase of 64-acres of land in 2005, owners Chris Weaver, Viticulture & Enology graduate of UC Davis, and Jim Coppola, Agricultural Economics graduate of Cornell, got to work clearing out the land for what would soon become their dream vineyard and winery. Over the next two years the owners along with friends, family, and local contractors cleared land and built a vineyard community with ten 1-acre lots, now known as Toro Run Estates. Along the way 11 acres of land was cultivated and prepped for planting. In 2009 with the assistance from a local nursery and Cornell University 15,000 vines were planted. In 2018 we planted 5,000 vines of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, making us 100% estate grown with a total of 14 acres of vines.
We offer all the beauty of the Finger Lakes as a member of the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, with a spectacular panoramic view of Cayuga Lake that has been voted one of the best in the area. We serve true, world-class wines, including our signature estate grown Grüner Veltliner and Pinot Meunier Reserve, as well as Méthode Champenoise Sparkling Brut. In addition, our Authentic Spanish Tapas have gained us recognition as a New York Winery with a Spanish Flair. Features of our property include a wedding terrace able to accommodate up to 250 people, a 2-mile hiking trail, and access to a private vacation cottage which can accommodate up to 8 people.
As a proud member of our nation's original wine trail, with vineyards sloping down to the deepest and widest point of our glaciated lake, we are proud to serve you true world-class, award-winning, estate grown and cellared wines. Our vineyard and tasting room sit atop a hill on the west side of Cayuga lake, offering one of the most spectacular panoramic views in the Finger Lakes.
