SENECA LAKE WINE TRAIL MEMBER
Established in 1805, the Fulkerson farm has a vast and unique history that we would love to share with you! Fulkerson Winery is celebrating 25 years in 2014. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff invites you to sample a few of our 20+ fine wines. Our offerings are diverse and handcrafted. We focus on Riesling, producing several different styles from dry to semi-dry to sweet and even a Riesling iced wine. We have other unique whites including Gruner Veltliner and Traminette. We are also well-known for our extensive selection of dry reds including lesser-known varietals like Dornfelder and Lemberger alongside more traditional varietals such as Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc, plus several others. Those who like something a touch sweeter will delight in our light and fruity Moscato, the ever-popular Matinee, made from Himrod grapes, and several other semi-sweet to sweet wines.
Since 1979 we’ve been offering fresh pressed grape juice to home winemaker’s every fall. Today, we produce over 30 varieties of fresh-pressed grape juice and a new option, fresh crushed whole fruit to home winemakers during harvest. We’re proud to be your one-stop shop from fermentation to bottling, plus an expert staff to help you along the way. During juice season (typically early September through mid/late October) we offer free home winemaking classes on Saturdays at 2pm. We stock an extensive selection of home winemaking supplies and recently enlarged our home brewing options as well. We carry grain, supplies, and even home brewing kits.
Bring your picnic and enjoy a glass of wine under our grape-covered pergola. In the summer you can take a horse-drawn Vineyard Tour and learn about grape growing, winemaking, and the rich history of the Fulkerson farm. For those looking for a more in-depth and unique tasting experience, call and book one of our Reserved Tasting options. These feature a private tasting in our mezzanine overlooking the tasting room with an experienced server who will walk you through wine and cheese or wine and chocolate pairings depending upon the flight you select.
Families enjoy our seasonal you-pick fruits including cherries, peaches, and apples. We look forward to sharing in your wine country experience. Join us in the digital world for a conversation on Facebook or Twitter, we’re happy to field your questions and help you plan your visit.
