The first winery on Seneca Lake, widely known for its warm hospitality and magnificent lakeside setting has garnered exemplary reviews both in and outside the Finger Lakes region.

Our founders, Gene Pierce along with Eastman Beers, Edward Dalrymple, and Howard Kimball, never imagined this when they opened the winery in 1977. Just three decades later, Glenora Wine Cellars would be producing 45,000 cases, hosting 85,000 visitors, and winning 75 medals at international wine competitions in one year alone.
