At Prejean Winery, we honor the tradition of winemaking that has been handed down for almost a thousand years. Prejean Winery grows grape varieties that originated in Europe; such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Chardonnay. Our Gewurztraminer, planted in 1979, is a mouthful in more ways than one. It is grown in the Alsace region of France. Riesling, also grown in France, but known predominately in Germany, is now the Finger Lakes’ signature grape variety. Our Dry Riesling has just won Double Gold Winner in the 2019 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

Finger Lakes Wines
Seneca Lake Winery
The Finger Lakes is the largest and most well-regarded winemaking area in the eastern United States, and it owes much of its recognition to the depth of the lakes, the steep slopes of the surrounding hills, and the moderate environment. These and other aspects make for superior viticulture in the Finger Lakes. Lots of varietals thrive in this climate, however the Finger Lakes Rieslings are particularly esteemed by wine lovers. Seneca Lake has some of the most beautiful vineyards that go for numerous acres on the sloping hills that surround the lake.
