Villa Bellangelo

One of New York state’s most historic wine estates, Villa Bellangelo has some vines dating back to 1866 which are still bearing fruit today. Previously known as Squaw Point, the name changed in 2002, since when they have focused on making Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer for whites, and Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc for reds.

They source their fruit from vineyards around Seneca Lake, and make a wide variety of cuvées including single vineyard Rieslings to showcase their varying terroir, while their semi-dry Riesling was selected as one of the best from the Finger Lakes in a 2014 Wine Spectator feature. 

“New York State is the most underated wine region in North America”
