McGregor Vineyard began producing its first Saperavi in 1985. Saperavi is an ancient wine grape originally from the country of Georgia. This estate grown and produced Saperavi was aged in oak barrels for one year. It has intense aromas and flavors of black currants and blackberries along with hints of earth, spice, and oak. While enjoyable in its youth, this wine will age nicely for many years.

Like all of our vinifera wines, this Merlot was produced with grapes grown by our team right here on our vineyard estate. Look for aromas and flavors of currant, black cherry, leather, oak, and spice. Currently available in very limited quantities.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is notably aromatic, with expressions of fresh ripe blackberries, black raspberries, and plums. The rich berry character gives way on the palate to sweet oak and graphite/pencil shaving notes. Rich & soft with a smooth finish of lingering tannins. Produced from 100% grapes grown on the McGregor Estate.
This estate grown and produced Chancellor pays tribute to our first vintage of this wine in our inaugural year of 1980. This limited production wine celebrates nearly 50 years of growing grapes in the Finger Lakes. Estate Grown.
This vintage of Cabernet Franc represents the large, ripe 2017 vintage well. Aromas and flavors of red cherry, strawberry, and a hint of raspberry lead to a finish that sits lightly on the palate. More subtle flavors of graphite, herbs, dust and oak are also expressed nicely on the finish. This wine is light to medium bodied and has outstanding fruit expression.
This is a luscious and opulent dry red wine made from a blend of estate grown Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, & Merlot grapes and carefully aged in oak barrels. This ruby red wine is rich and complex - boasting flavors and aromas of black cherries, raspberries, earth, and leather - supported by a bold tannic structure that allows it to age wonderfully.
Enjoy with grilled steak, lamb, and firm cheeses.
A dry oak aged blend of vinifera and hybrid grapes including Saperavi, Sereksiya Charni, Lèon Millot & Cabernet Franc. It’s soft and velvety in the mouth with excellent fruity character and a smooth finish. This everyday red wine pairs very well with spicy foods, BBQ ribs and red sauces.
Initial aromas of black cherry, raspberry, coconut, and spicy oak soar in this Pinot. The vibrant, ruby red color of this wine is bookended with a smooth and lengthy finish. Like most reds from our 2015 vintage, this wine will not be available for long.
This is a bold and complex Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, & Merlot. Aromas of ripe red fruits, sweet oak and a subtle earthiness. Ripe tannins offer a pleasing finish to this youthful yet elegant wine.
This vibrant, ruby red wine is very aromatic and flavorful. It has a rather understated complexity of aromas and flavors that come alive in the glass as the wine breathes and opens up. Red cherry, strawberry, black tea, forest floor, spice and vanilla. The wine finishes with lingering fruit flavors and velvety tannins. This wine is quite approachable right now, but can easily cellar for at least 3-5 years.
