Five generations ago, the Wagner Family began to grow grapes on the East Side of Seneca Lake. In 1976 Bill Wagner, a third generation grape grower, took an old backhoe and began to dig a cellar in the middle of an old horse pasture. Since the grand opening in 1979 the Wagner/Lee family, with the help and dedication of loyal and hard working employees, has grown Wagner Vineyards Estate Winery into a world class winery right here in the heart of the Finger Lakes.
The people of Wagner Vineyards Estate Winery are what makes us what we are. Our passion, knowledge and experience show in our wines. Everyone from the vineyard to the tasting room plays a vital role in our winery. Take the chance to get to know us below!
