NY Winery Of The Month
The Element Winery
Bob Bates and Christopher Bates, Master Sommelier, founded Element Winery in 2005. Together they have learned the ups and downs of wine making, and forged a recognizable style of wines. Christopher left the winery in Spring of 2014, and now Bob is a full time winemake
When it comes to wine making they have a few guidelines they have set out for the wine they want to produce, here are a few excerpts from their list:
"We believe in making wines that are true to place. To this end, we do not remove things from our wines (Reverse Osmosis, Spinning Cones, etc). More importantly, we don’t add much either. With the exception of minimal amounts of sulfur, we don’t add anything to our wines. We do not want to force the wine."
Their tasting room is located in downtown Geneva at F.L.X. Provisions
