The Winery


Nestled in the beautiful BashaKill wetlands of New York State's verdant Catskill Mountains, BashaKill Vineyards is Sullivan County's first commercial farm winery. We opened our tasting room doors in December 2007, and since then we have continued to make our wines by hand, in small batches, in American and French Oak barrels in our wine cave carved into the hillside. We now produce 9 different wines varying from semi-sweet Germanic styles to dry, oak-aged robust reds. We produce two estate wines from organically grown grapes on premises: a sparkling rosé made from our Marquette grapes, called our Rambling Rose Rosé and, our naturally-sparkling estate Cayuga White grape wine called Estate White Tail, which we delicately infuse with organic lavender grown by hand on the nearby Winterton Farm.

We are fortunate enough to live in this great wetlands preserve, which inspires us to grow our grapes organically, to compost all of our grape pressings to give back to the earth, and to keep sheep as nature's lawn mowers. The BashaKill aqueduct offers uniquely mineral-rich water which lend themselves to creating excellent, full-body beers, including our Snowy Owl cream ale, made from 80% NY-raised barley from Ithaca's East Coast Malting Co., on tap all season. The marshlands provide an ideal micro-climate for our red and white grapes, blanketing them in insulating fog, which keeps them protected from the cold that would otherwise be fatal to these delicate varieties. More than 2,000 acres of this wildlife preserve are available for hikes, kayaking, fishing, and horse back riding, giving us an enclosed natural environment with fresh air and water all year round for growing the purest grapes.

We also ferment our own kombucha, now on tap all year long and made from organic sugar and 100% organic Formosa Oolong black tea.
