We had the Red Tail Ridge riesling at the Ports Cafe while there for dinner, and I liked it so much we had to make a special trip here. We had spent the day out and about at the Keuka Wine Trail, and pulled in to this winery about 7 or 8 minutes before closing. A woman came out to... More

Had the option to try three tastings, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. the wine were good examples of what the Finger Lakes has to offer. The winery has a place to sit down and relax and enjoy the view.

Beautiful dry fingerlake wines. Small business. Knowledgeable staff. Especially loved the 2012 Pinot Noir. Gerwarztraminer and Reisling above average too.

What can we say! This wine is some of the best ever! We were there for their Red Dinner and they did not disappoint. We stocked up on the wine to bring back to New Jersey. This area of the finger lakes makes an awesome weekend trip from NJ. Only a 5 hour drive and there are some amazing restaurants... More

Hello, Thank you for your nice review of RTR since we are always trying to make the tastings for our customers as best as it can be! Our current interns are actually from Namibia and from Illinois originally. However, one of our owners did grow up in MN so he shares that knowledge with us. Glad to see the wine... More

While researching our road trip we learnt that the Finger Lakes region was very scenic and known for its viticulture. Then while having dinner at Convivial in Washington I ordered a Riesling called Good Karma and it was quite good so we decided to visit the vineyard. Our tasting was conducted by Sarah who explained the process to us and... More

I always enjoy a good Riesling, and I LOVE when a winery has more than one to offer! I tried them all here, and greatly enjoyed it. I also appreciated that purchasing their Good Karma Riesling resulted in a percentage going to support a local charity. We had a nice time chatting with the two ladies working, and learned a...

Hi Aimee, Thanks you for the great review and for stopping in at Red Tail Ridge. We are glad you like Good Karma as much as we do. In fact, with this charity wine we have raised over $24,000 for local food banks and the numbers keep growing! See you on your next visit in the Tasting Room. Cheers, Danielle More

If you are out for a day to get drunk while sampling wines in the Fingerlakes area, this is not the place for you. If you want to taste really good wine, this is the place for you. I live in the area and always take anyone who wants to taste wine, to this winery. It's relatively small and they... More

I've been here before, so I felt safe in recommending a stop here to visitors to the area. I am sad to say we were very disappointed. The pours were so small and the selection limited, we could not tell if we liked it. I am very disappointed to have recommended it.

Patty, We apologize for your experience. The crew is trained to pour 15ml samples to ensure we are giving even pours to everyone. I will make sure they are using their practice glass to pour an accurate amount. We have sold out of a few wines like Dry Rose and Dornfelder recently. So if these are of interest to you,... More

Out of the dozen and a half wineries (over 2 days) that we visited, this was the only one that we felt un-welcomed in. Not that there was animosity. There just didn't seem to be any interest in presenting their products.
