The story of Anyela’s Vineyards began three generations ago in Eastern Europe and continues today on the hillside high above Skaneateles Lake. The Nocek family combines its viticultural experience with the cooler climate patterns and fertile soil to grow their select grapes. Unlike other vineyards along neighboring Finger Lakes, they protect our vines from the cold after the fall harvest. One by one, they carefully remove them from the trellises and bury them in the rich earth to insulate the sensitive primary buds, which eventually become the fruit. In spring, they re-trellis the vine for maximum sun exposure. They also control our grape yield to cultivate the ripest, most flavorful fruit. Since planting their vineyards in 2001, Anyela’s Vineyards has three vintages in development and continues to grow in reputation as a vintner of exclusive wines for every occasion. Visit Anyela's Vineyards to sample wines, stroll through the vineyards, and enjoy the spectacular view. Reservations are available for winery tours as well.
