The Standing Stone Vineyards Experience
Standing Stone Vineyards is the realization of a vision – to grow and craft world class Riesling and Gewurztraminer in the Finger Lakes. That vision led Tom and Marti Macinski to this very special farm, originally planted by Gold Seal Vineyards in the early 1970s. The planting of Riesling and Chardonnay was preceded by 3 years of research on sites throughout the Finger Lakes, by industry leaders Charles Fournier and Guy DeVeaux. The Gold Seal research and planting, and Macinski’s vision of world class wines contributed to the Finger Lakes recognition as a world class wine growing region.
