|It's here on the east side of Cayuga Lake, King FerryTM Winery where you are invited to experience first-hand what having a burning passion for fine winemaking really tastes like.
A small farm winery, producing world-class TreleavenTM Wines, King Ferry Winery, is owned and operated by Tacie and Peter Saltonstall. Here, delicate vinifera grapes are hand-tended and selectively picked to produce extremely complex and full-flavored wines.
Treleaven Chardonnays are crafted in the centuries-old Burgundian tradition.
Choosing quality over quantity, the Saltonstall family knows by reducing yields in the vineyard, barrel fermentation and aging in French and Hungarian oak barrels—only wines with proven depth of fruit character are produced.
Peter and Tacie Saltonstall
