We are dedicated to crafting world-class Riesling. The estate vineyard is currently planted to 25-acres of high-density Riesling, on steep slate soils, that run with the slope, akin to Germany’s famed Mosel region.
The winery, named after Paul’s parents, Joan Hillick and Edward Hobbs, holds special meaning, and pays homage to his roots in western New York where he grew up on his family’s farm. In 2013, he revived his family’s legacy of growing grapes in New York when he acquired this 78-acre estate.
Paul has created a name for himself as a flying winemaker. Over his now 30 plus year career he has become involved in numerous projects around the globe, including vineyards in California, Argentina, Armenia, Spain and France.
Explore our limited production dry riesling surrounded by breathtaking views of Seneca Lake. Guests are welcome on a first come, first served basis.
