This is Heron Hill’s third tasting location, after the original at the winery on Keuka Lake and one on Seneca Lake which opened in 2007.
The new site, shown at right, is the former South Bristol Cultural Center, in a renovated 100-year-old barn. It features expansive open space with high ceilings and original hand-hewn wooden beams. Large windows offer a view of vineyards of Cabernet Franc and Riesling. The company has plans to plant more in the future.
The tasting room is located at 5323 Seneca Point Road. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Closed Christmas Eve and Day and New year’s Eve and Day. Phone: (585) 394-0173.
