Our estate grown fruit is crafted into expressive well balanced wines.
Our wines are reflective of our site’s soils and climate,
and express the character of each vintage of Finger Lakes wine.
founded in 1990 by The Martini Family
Ann and John Martini moved to Yates County in 1973 to grow grapes and raise their family on 100 acres overlooking Seneca Lake. Ann managed the vineyard and raised the children, while John worked for Cornell University at the Agricultural Experiment Station. The grapes from their vineyards were first sold to the Taylor Wine Company and eventually to wineries across New York State. In 1990, Ann and John opened Anthony Road Wine Company with wines made from the 1989 crop. Their children, Peter, Sarah, Maeve and Elizabeth, have been involved in the vineyard and winery throughout their growing years and are now full-time employees/co-owners of Anthony Road Wine Company. The joy of growing grapes and producing fine wines still motivates and excites the Martini family…more than a quarter-century after the first vines took root.
Family. Friends. Passion
about the vineyards
The location of the vineyards in close proximity to Seneca Lake lends itself to a favorable microclimate for grape growing. Cooling in the summer and a few degrees above average temperatures during the winter.
about the winemaker
Working closely with winemaker Johannes Reinhardt , Peter learned from one of the top winemakers in the United States until 2014 when he took on the role of Head Winemaker.
