As you step into their tasting room the first thing you notice is elegance
founded Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars and has consistently produced award-winnning wines with his own grapes since the 1990 vintage.
Mark's family has been in the Seneca Lake grape business since the time of his great grandfather, and since the 1940s has produced vitis labrusca and French-American hybrid grapes for sale to big wine producers like Taylor and Widmer.
As the giants began to stumble and estate wineries emerged in the wake of the Farm Winery Act of 1976, Mark took over the family business in 1978 and shifted the emphasis of the family farm to cultivating premium vitis vinifera grapes to supply the budding new wineries.
The original vineyards are planted on lands recognized as far back as the 1800s as ideal for grape cultivation. Superior soil content, gently sloping hills, unusual prevailing wind patterns, ample sunlight, and proximity to the deep waters of Seneca Lake are all important ingredients that contribute to the production of Lamoreaux Landing's premium estate-bottled wines like their Cabernet Franc.
GOLD MEDALIST - This full bodied red has a big, rich nose with aromas of black cherry, chocolate, cranberry and spice. With luscious ripe fruit on the palate, this Cab Franc has an excellent oak structure that will allow it to withstand the test of time. Bring on your heartiest of fare including game meats, beef steaks, roasts, and meatball goulash.
We opened a bottle of this premium Cabernet Franc at our last wine tasting which was much enjoyed by our customers. If you are interested there are still a few bottles on the shelf which retail for $17.60 with 10% off.
