Swedish Hill Winery

Swedish Hill Winery Swedish Hill's roots can be traced back to 1969 when Dick and Cynthia Peterson planted their first vines. For over twenty years they sold quality grapes to area wineries. In 1985 they decided to start their own winery and opened the doors of Swedish Hill in 1986. Since then they have grown to be one of the largest wineries in the Finger Lakes area and also one of the top award-winning wineries in the Empire State. Tours at Swedish Hill are relaxed, informal and culminate with a tasting of fine wines.

The winery is located in central New York, just 8 miles south of Seneca Falls or 35 miles north of Ithaca on Route 414 (see map). Call, E-Mail, Fax, or write to us to obtain a complete schedule of events or for detailed directions to the winery. We look forward to getting to know you!
