Atwater Vineyards

We couldn't grow the grapes we do without our lake. Seneca Lake's massive depth (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.

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.
