Perhaps you have heard news as it is filtering to all of us in bits and pieces. The basic point: the Finger Lakes region was hit with a frost on Thursday, May 18th. A very warm early spring that leads to early bud break brings a lot of risk. Frost occurring after bud break is perhaps the most feared weather event in any cold climate wine growing region.
Being a Rotondo Club member at Billsboro, I bring all my out-of-town guests for tasting. This time it was my brother who informed me he "wasn't much of a wine drinker" (not sure how we're even related!!!!) The servers were fabulous. They explained wine to him and made recommendations of good "introductory wines." We also did a chocolate tasting - simply delicious!!!! As always, a wonderful time. Thank you all for making a first time visit special. See you again soon!
Great experience. We arrived upon opening and service was fantastic. Very knowledgeable staff. Unique barn tasting area with patio. Prices were better than many other wineries in the area. Not a large selection of wine but good quality. Grapes are grown locally by other vineyards.
Nestled in the woods, Billsboro Winery has a classic barn-style presentation with stone interior walls and a maroon barn style exterior. They excel in service with restaurant type seating on the inside and outside on their covered deck. They offer a choice of dry and sweet wines, and uniquely offer a curated flight with chocolate parings. Although I was not interested, I can see where this would be a hit with many others. Billsboro’s classic look and well seated areas for enjoyment are a great draw for wine enthusiasts.
Had a great wine tasting here! Lovely wine and very thorough history for our crew who wanted the full wine taste experience. Thanks to Keith who did an excellent job and the staff!!
