  • Tasting and wine purchase; friendly and attentive service on the patio. 2020 Syrah was our favourite! But all of the wines are excellent.

  • Great experience. We arrived upon opening and service was fantastic. Very knowledgeable staff. Unique barn tasting area with patio. Prices were better than many other wineries in the area. Not a large selection of wine but good quality. Grapes are grown locally by other vinards.
  • We visited Billsboro for its Chocolate and Wine pairing and were excited given it was the first winery that we were exploring in the Finger lakes region. Unfortunately, the overall experience was underwhelming. First, there was zero effort put by the winery to explain the process of trying the chocolates and wines together. There were no tasting notes on the wines, and there wasn't even clear labeling to indicate which chocolate corresponds to what name. I'd recommend that the winery spend time to make the experience more educational for amateur wine drinkers. Two, the wines themselves felt unremarkable. Out of the four that we tasted, none really piqued our interest sufficiently for us to buy a bottle. Overall, if Billsboro were to invest a bit more in the experience it offers to its patrons, visiting this winery could be worthwhile.
