Arbor Hill Winery is located near Canandaigua Lake in the famous Finger Lakes Region. In this warm, wonderful New England country setting, the Brahm family has created a unique complex of antique buildings to showcase their award-winning wines, gourmet wine food products, gifts and gift boxes. Back in the early 1800’s, the Randall and Standish families migrated to the South Bristol area from New England. They settled in the region and grew hops and small fruit. Today, Arbor Hill Winery continues the tradition of producing award-winning wines and largest line of gourmet food products in the Finger Lakes Region.

One of the area’s most popular attractions is The Famous Naples Grape Pie! The rich tradition began sometime in the 1960’s with Al Hodges, who commissioned Irene Bouchard to make this unique grape dessert for his historic Redwood Restaurant in Naples. Each year, during the Annual Naples Grape Festival, thousands come to celebrate the harvest and sample the grape pies. Today, dozens of bakers produce more than 30,000 grape pies during just six weeks of the year. For years, Arbor Hill has been bombarded by requests for Famous Naples Pie from as far away as Hawaii. But we were unable to offer these delicious pies…until now. Today, you can enjoy grape pies all year long, from Arbor Hill.
About Brew & Brats
Arbor Hill has long produced wines and gourmet foods having distinct flavors signifying the heritage of the region. They now make 21 different wines and 47 gourmet food products.
This new venture builds upon the historical significance of hops, an integral ingredient of beer. The Towns of Bristol and South Bristol were noted for their hop production – most of which supplied the McKechnie Brewery of Canandaigua in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
The featured sausage is made with Arbor Hill Sherried Wine BBQ Sauce, which has been a staple at Arbor Hill almost since the winery opened in 1987 – due to the original formulation developed by Neapolitans Darryl Braun and Doug Preston.
Arbor Hill has also partnered with Hartmann’s Sausage of Canandaigua to offer other exciting flavors and styles of sausage with taste and quality second to none.
The new venue, the historic carriage barn behind the retail store, gives them the grilling capability and ample space for people to enjoy a great brat and beverages.
Arbor Hill Winemaster, John Brahm, sums it up this way -- “There aren’t too many places in this world where the region’s natural attributes, the available expertise and the passion of accomplishment come together. We are fortunate to live in such a region.”
