King Ferry Winery is a small farm winery, located on the east side of Cayuga Lake, producing world-class Treleaven Wines. Here, delicate vinifera grapes are hand-tended and selectively picked to produce extremely complex and full-flavored wines.
Choosing quality over quantity, the Saltonstall family knows by reducing yields in the vineyard, barrel fermentation, and aging in French, Hungarian, and American oak barrels, that only wines with proven depth of fruit character are produced.
King Ferry Winery is widely acknowledged as a leading maker of superior, smooth, full-bodied Chardonnays, which are crafted in the centuries-old Burgundian tradition. The winery also produces more than a dozen award-winning Treleaven Wines including a variety of exquisite Rieslings, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir, Meritage, Vignoles, an earthy aromatic Cabernet Franc, and a soft, easy drinking Merlot.
The winery is owned and operated by Tacie and Peter Saltonstall.
