Fall in the vineyards


Fall in Loughmare's vineyards

Take a look at this beauty and see why Fergal and I are so grateful for Colm’s wedding gift! This is looking from the vineyards by the holy well across Fullarton Road toward the site of our future vineyards.

‘Harvest Home’

     Can’t get that hornpipe out of me mind these days. Busy time here at Loughmare as we’re dancin’ through the vineyards picking this year’s crop!
     Our team has been gatherin’ them by hand into bins like these. Shane comes by with the tractor and loads up the bins to bring into the winery.
     We were worried about the harvest with all the rain earlier this summer. But buíochas le Dia,  we’ve had some fine warm weather over the past couple of weeks that’s been gettin’ the Brix (sugar levels) just right!
     Sláinte! ~ FergalIMG_2210

Céad míle fáilte romhat!

 celtknot    That’s Irish for a hundred thousand welcomes to ye. Here at Loughmare Winery we take pride in extending to you our heartiest of welcomes. After tasting our wines from native grapes, come dine in our gourmet cafe (with a real turf fire on chilly days), browse through our shop of New York-made gifts or take in the incredible view of Keuka Lake from our castle turret.
     Our newly planted vinifera and hybrid vineyards will be expanding the range of quality wines we offer soon. During the summer, come to our Saturday evening céilithe featuring traditional Irish musicians from Rochester (with take-away from Shane’s “chipper”.) On Wednesdays, we feature Wine & Words — readings by poets and authors from the Finger Lakes Region followed by sweets from The Parlor City Patisserie and our dessert wines. 
     Come, watch us grow. Sláinte!
