Silver Thread Vineyard

Silver Thread Vineyard was established in 1982 on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake, at the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes region. The winery is named for a local waterfall, Silver Thread Falls, known as one of the loveliest in the Finger Lakes.. 

 

 

 

 

 

Silver Thread’s seven-acre vineyard and ecologically-designed wine cellar were established by organics enthusiast and author Richard Figiel. Since the late 1980’s, the vineyard has followed the principles of sustainable farming. Silver Thread has earned critical acclaim for its wines. Their Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were lauded in Wine Advocate, The New York Times, and The World Atlas of Wine during the 1980s and 1990s, when Finger Lakes wines were virtually unknown outside the region.

Heralded winemaker Paul Brock and wine educator Shannon Brock assumed ownership of Silver Thread Vineyard in 2011. Silver Thread is staying true to its roots despite new ownership. It remains a boutique winery focused on sustainable viticulture and premium estate wines. Production is currently 3,000 cases per year
