The times they are a'changing...

After 40+ years of offering free winetastings, and being one of the few wineries in the nation not charging for tasting, we find it necessary to change. Starting May 10, 2014 there will be a $5 per person tasting fee, ONLY ON FRIDAY, SATURDAY & SUNDAY . You keep the wine glass, and the fee is refundable on a purchase of six or more bottles. Midweek tastings are still free.

This modest fee will help us to hold the line on prices, which are some of the most reasonable in the industry. For most of our customers this will be a positive; you can get your $5 back, AND keep the glass.

Grape Varieties

There are three primary families of grapes used in winemaking:(1) Viniferra, the traditional European varieties, like Chardonnay, Cabernet and Pinot Gris.(2) Native American, like Concord, Niagara, and Catawba. And (3) French American hybrids, like Chambourcin, Vidal, and Seyval. All can be made into good wine with their own distinct characteristics. We grow all three types at Buckingham, and all are popular.
