Silver Thread Vineyard

Silver Thread Vineyard creates expressive, age-worthy wines in harmony with nature. The boutique winery and sustainably-managed vineyard are located on the east side of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Small production ensures the greatest care and highest quality in every bottle of Silver Thread.

Silver Thread's seven-acre vineyard and ecologically-designed wine cellar were established by organics enthusiast and author Richard Figiel. Since the late 1980's, the vineyard has followed the principles of sustainable farming. Critically-acclaimed winemaker Paul Brock and wine educator Shannon Brock assumed ownership of Silver Thread Vineyard in 2011. Paul Brock has crafted a portfolio of intense and high-quality wines that are already well-received by Finger Lakes wine aficionados. General Manager Shannon Brock, who has been a leader in the hospitality industry in the Finger Lakes for the past several years, is putting her expertise to work to create an outstanding tasting room experience.

Silver Thread is primarily a Riesling producer, specializing in styles that reflect the unique terroir of the Finger Lakes. They also produce premium estate wines from Gewurztraminer, Cabernet Franc & Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay.
