PAPAYA - BAY LEAF - SUCCULENT
Sunrise is high-toned and high-style. It prefers glamping over roughing it on the landscape, manicured grass over uncultivated terrain, and is always prepared to provide the most gracious hospitality to all that it encounters. As one of our longest-lived lieux-dits and the only site we work with on Cayuga Lake, Sunrise has a penchant for making friends and a yearning to be in the spotlight. Just as it unfolds on the hillside of Cayuga Lake, a sight of meticulous refinement, the wine of Sunrise is also neatly layered and without subtlety, putting all dimensions of its gem (Riesling) on display. Driven by flavor, ripeness, and minerality, it is forward but not showy, exaggerated but sincere. Just as the perfect host, it greets you warmly and seeks to feed curiosities and pleasure.
About Forge Cellars
We are a small, artisanal producer focusing entirely on Riesling and Pinot Noir. We are made up of three like-minded and passionate friends--French Winemaker-Grower, Louis Barruol of Château de Saint Cosme in Gigondas and Finger Lakes partners Justin Boyette (Winemaker) and Richard Rainey (Vineyards, General Manager).

We strive to grow grapes and handcraft wines of interest and value that perfectly balance minerality, aromatics and fruit to reflect our exceptional Finger Lakes terroir. Each vintage is viewed as an opportunity to express our region - to reflect its soils, its cool climate and its hillside lake terroirs.

Our choices in the cellar guard the purity of our vineyards. Simply put, we make wine in the traditional, handcrafted manner. We harvest by hand. We sort by hand. We load the grapes into the press by hand. We shovel the vats out by hand. We employ spontaneous fermentation and ferment in very tiny lots, so that we truly understand the expression of the vineyard each year. We use very low levels of sulphur and don't fine or filter our red wines.
