Three Brothers Wineries & Estates - Geneva, New York

Updated on September 11, 2014

This is yet another of the adventures we enjoyed during our visit Upstate New York.

Three Brother's Winery is an absolute must visit if you are planning on visiting upstate.

Upon our arrival we purchased our passport to visit each of the 3 unique wineries and the microbrewery. We began our wine tour at Stony Lonesome. The view of vineyard from the deck is beautiful! With a breathtaking view of Seneca Lake.

Stony Lonesome has a classy atmosphere. Of all of the wines tasted at this winery I loved the Estate Reserve White Merlot. They also have series of Riesling Wines called "Four Degrees of Riesling". Simply labeled with numbers: 0, 1, 2 and 3.

0 = Dry

1 = Medium Dry

2 = Medium Sweet

3 = Sweet

I like sweet myself so I went for the 2 and 3.

What is your preference, sweet or dry?

After Stony Lonesome we were off to Bagg Dare. This was worth the trip all in itself! The theme is a dive bar. Old trucks filled with all kinds of trashy looking items, hubcaps and license plates on the walls. The trail to Bagg Dare is full of quirky items like this.

The wine is all sweet, which is fine with me. The best though, has to be the names of the wines. Wine featured are: Well Hung, 69 Ways To Have Fun, Poor Limp Richard's, Bone Spirit, Ride'er All Night, Dog Head Red and Driv'er Home. All of the wines were good I would have to say my favorite was probably the Poor Limp Richard's.

For those who want beer!

This was a pretty cool idea too! A brewery for those who may not like wine. My husband liked that idea. He likes beer, he will drink wine, but for the most part, I am the wine drinker and he is the beer man.

I did not drink much of the beer at this particular stop, but it was still cool because my husband liked it.

Make your own beer! - I got this for my husband a couple of years ago.

Beer or wine? IT'S A DUEL!

What's better, beer or wine?

This was our last stop. Again sweet wines. I would have to say it was a toss up between the 90 Seconds In Heaven and the Scandelicious. All of the wines I tasted were good though. By that point I am surprised I remember what I liked :)

Another cool perk is that they sell small bottles so you can mix up a 4 pack of what you liked from all of the wineries. All of the wines are not available in this size, at least they were not all on the shelf when I was there. But still quite a few were available.

      Terrific story and pictures. I grew up in the Finger Lakes region of NY State (was born in Canandaiqua), so am quite familiar with Seneca Lake and Geneva, NY. My brother brews his own wines which are so good he's even won a Blue Ribbon at the New York State Fair. I've visited many wineries in upstate NY and agree with you about Three Brothers Wineries. Glad you enjoyed your visit. Congrats on LotD.
