“It is always surprising to find how many people still have only a nodding acquaintance with wine. And this holds true here in New York State, famous as it is for its superb wines.”

– Francis L. Farrell 1947-1987

Tours

Experience the historic atmosphere of Brotherhood Winery by taking a leisurely stroll through our vast network of underground cellars. Excavated by hand in the late 19th Century, the dimly lit cellars house over two hundred oak barrels and feature a crested vault containing some of the oldest vintages in America.

Our team of knowledgeable guides will reveal the secrets of these mysterious vaults and keep you amused with tall tales of folly and tragedy. The tour will get you well acquainted with the complete wine making process and you will feel like an expert in oenology.

Test your wine tasting skills in our modern showroom and enjoy the many flavors and textures Brotherhood has to offer the budding and discerning wine lover.

Guests will be added to tours on a first-come-first-serve basis.  

No pets allowed inside the building.  Pets welcome in our outdoor wine garden.

Story of Brotherhood
