Standing Stone Vineyards
9934 Route 414
Hector, NY 14841
(607) 582-6051

Tom and Marti Macinski took a lesson from the wise and purchased land that previous vinters had used for decades before. The ideal conditions of the soil proved beneficial, and in just two short years of purchasing the property, they released their first wine in 1993. The 800 cases flew out the doors in 12 weeks. Today, they produce 8,000 cases of award winning wines. Their dessert wine, the Vidal, has garnered attention from Wine Spectator and other wine enthusiast publications. Their $10 tasting and tour is worthwhile, and while reservations are not required, large groups should call in advance.
