Standing Stone Vineyards is integral to the heritage and future of the Finger Lakes region. Located on the Eastern slopes of Seneca Lake, the site is not only visually stunning but also ideal vineyard land. Factors such as proximity to the lake, slope, and soil type are vital components that contribute to moderating lake effects and ripening, and contribute to the distinct nature of our wines.


Standing Stone Vineyards embraces the pioneering spirit of Charles Fournier and Guy Devaux, the Gold Seal winemakers who planted Chardonnay and Riesling on our site in the early 1970s. Our production showcases all that this exceptional site has to offer, from classic styles made from some of the oldest vinifera plantings in the region, to more innovative offerings made from lesser known varietals, like Saperavi.


In order to achieve the purest expression of place, we implement low intervention practices, both in the cellar and in our farming methods. We have increased biodiversity and ecosystem health and eliminated synthetic inputs. It is an exciting time to delve into what this farm has to offer and we invite you to taste the wines, and explore with us.


In the summer of 2017, the owners of Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard, on the west side of Seneca Lake, purchased Standing Stone Vineyards from Marti & Tom Macinski. Their goal is continue the stewardship of this historic vineyard site
