Great Wines with Funny Names ~ New York Finger Lakes Wineries

Updated on February 10, 2019

New York State is Home to some of the Best, and Funniest Named Wines!

The Finger Lakes region in New York State (NYS) is proud to be the home of 110 wineries, and some of the finest vintners, award winning and palate pleasing wines. New York State is also the home of the funniest wine names, and even winery company names,

This is a listing of some of these fine, but funny, wine names. Some have even won awards, perhaps, despite their names.

Cheers, and Enjoy!


First, Let's Set the Tone Properly for this Wine article, because Wine is Really a Serious Topic

Bully Hill's  Love My Goat
Bully Hill's Love My Goat

Bully Hill Vinyards

Hammondsport, NY

Since it's inception B just a little ully Hill Vinyards has used original art for it's labels. Then there is the favorite wines creatively, and perhaps mysteriously, named "Love my Goat" and "Space Shuttle Red".

Nuff said?

See these wines and more here.

And Now... A Serious Review of the Finger Lakes Wine Region

Three Brothers Winery and Estates

Geneva, New York

Three Brothers Winery and Estates have 3 wine divisions and 1 microbrewery.

Marketed under, Bagg Dare Winery, formerly Rogue House, this winery caters, in their own words, to "...those who have a lot more fun in a Dive bar."

Apparently they had issues with the Rogue name, so I'll add another section featuring their wines when their line is updated.

They also have a division called Passion Feet Winery. The following labels are from this line and are the least suggestive wine names.

Get the picture?

Their fine (snooty) wine division Stony Lonesome Estates is admittedly what we'll call high-fallutin' and encourages you to... "feel free to leave your embarrassing relatives at our winery down the hill. We're all dukes and no hazard here". They may be featured on a page in the future.

Three Brother's micro-brewery, the "Soon to Be Legendary War Horse Brewing Company", may also be featured another day on a another page. By the way... the apostrophes in the prior sentence are in the proper place, as this is what is shown on their bottle labels. I have yet to figure out if it is wishful thinking on their part, or they're just determined as an old warhorse.

Backseat Bounce

from Passion Feet Vinyard & Winebarn at Three Brothers Winery and Estates

"Pure decadence. The kind of wine that you can't wait to tell your friends about. The illicit kind that should be enjoyed as often as possible. The kind with hints of pepper and blackberry that is so good it should be outlawed."

Noiret, Riesling, Concord

Scandelicious Raspberry Riesling

from Passion Feet Vineyard & Winebarn

"Light enough to be carried away. Delicious enough to disappear with barely a trace. Fresh and tantalizing enough that the neighbors would talk - if only they knew. Savor the moment that's too good to be true."

Pinot, Riesling

What kind of Wine Drinker are You?

Would you try a Wine with a Funny name?

... don't need hoity-toity names and labels to be great.

Give 'em a try. You might find a new Favorite.

Now the English know how to treat Wine with the respect it deserves - Uumm, sort of.

Torrey Ridge Winery

Penn Yan, New York

While this winery does have some traditionally named wines, I'm kind of fond of the names of their Red Neck series: Daisy-Moo (won Double Gold at the Indy International Wine Competition), Gravel Gerty, and Uncle Ralph's Rabble Red just to name a few.

Can you believe Cous'n Emmy Lou won at least 2 Gold and Best in Class awards in New York and California competitions.

Class? Really? Yup, really. See more about Torrey Ridge's Awards

Cousin Hick-A-Billy Finger Lakes Table Wine

from Torrey Ridge Winery

"Here is our newest addition Cousin Hick-A-Billy and he's visiting his Red Neck Cousins. A fun blend of Catawba and other Native American grapes."

See the rest of Torrey Ridge's wines here.

Pompous Ass Wine Company

The Pompous Ass Wine Company, despite their name does have some traditionally named wines such as Chardonnays, and Rieslings, but they also carry a Pretentious Port, a Bodacious Blend, and Highfalutin Red. My favorite line is Kiss My Ass White, Kiss My Ass Blush, and even Kiss My Ass Red, of which my daughter is particularly fond. See Wines available here.

The newest tag line...

Any day is the Perfect Day for a

"Kiss My Ass Party!"

Gotta love it.

      Our first and still best Finger Lakes wine experience was with the Hermann Wiemer Vineyard. But love Bully Hill as well! There are also an amazing number of superb restaurants in the area. SquidAngel Blessings.

      @anonymous: Well, there is a Broke Ass Wine, but it's not made in New York. :D

      Where can I buy Broke Ass Wine; we raise miniature donkeys and with the economy, a bottle of this wine would be the perfect Christmas gift to give!

      I've only tried Bully Hill from this list. Most of my Finger Lakes faves aren't at all funny: Herman Weimer and Sheldrake Point, for example.I'm in Ithaca and I enjoy a lot of Finger Lakes wines.
