The Hunt family has been farming west of Keuka Lake in New York’s Finger Lakes region for seven generations. In 1981 we started crafting wine. We are committed to responsible farming and caring for the land that has given us so much. We have reduced our fossil fuel use by installing award-winning solar and geothermal systems. We’re improving soil health through the use of mulch and compost. And we’re increasing habitat for bees, birds and other wildlife all around the farm. Because to make great wines, you need clean air, clean water and healthy soil.
