Sheldrake's agricultural legacy has continued with the planting vinifera grapes beginning in 1997. The vineyards are situated on a slope between two gorges that feed into Cayuga Lake and the site is blessed with well-drained gravelly glacier soils.

Our goal is to grow quality premium varietals including Cabernet
Franc, Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Grape LugPinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The first estate vintage, from fruit picked on our site in 2000, was released in 2001. Subsequent vintages have produced superior fruit quality which is becoming more and more evident as the wines are being finished and released.

Through sustainable practices and sensitivity to the environment, it is our desire to preserve Sheldrake Point's agricultural heritage while producing fine wines that display the flavors and character of our unique terroir.
