Variety is the Spice of Life

Wagner Vineyards
Lodi, New York

Bill Wagner, founder of Wagner Vineyards, has long been respected as a pioneer grape grower, vintner, restaurateur, and most recently, microbrewer in the Finger Lakes region. He started the winery on the eastern slope of Seneca Lake 30 years ago. Today, due to the talents of four generations of Wagners and the esteemed winemaking team of John Herbert and Ann Raffetto, Wagner Vineyards cultivates 250 acres of grapes and produces 50,000 cases of estate wine each year. They focus on the production of a full range of award-winning Riesling wines (dry, semi-dry, sweet, and Riesling Ice) complemented by an impressive list of Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, ice wines, and blends.
The winery is also the site of The Ginny Lee Café, offering guests the chance to enjoy Wagner wines along with fine cuisine and spectacular views. And all summer long, the brewery deck is the place to go for live entertainment, great wine, food, and Bill Wagner's other libation, craft-brewed beer. A visit to Wagner's offers something for visitors of all interests and the portfolio offers something for wine drinkers of all tastes.
