At Sheldrake Point Winery we embrace the adage that great wine is made in the vineyard, and our winemaking and vineyard teams work closely to ensure that the grapes we pick are of the highest quality and optimal ripeness. Over the years, we have honed our approach to winemaking so that the focus is on terroir. This means that we produce the best wines possible in any given year with as little human intervention as possible, letting the vineyard and vintage truly shine.
Uphill from our tasting room, the winery at Sheldrake Point sits nestled among the vines and commands a stunning view of our sloping lawns, Cayuga Lake, and the cliffs on the opposite shore. The two buildings, one powered by solar since 2004 and the other by geothermal energy since 2018, represent our commitment to sustainability in winemaking as well as in the vineyard.
