Montezuma Wineries

I just wanted to write a quick post about one of my favourite semi-local wineries, the Montezuma Winery in beautiful Seneca Falls by the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge.? Do notice the abundant dragonfly theme.? Obviously, these are folks with taste.

There used to be a meadery in Sterling, where they throw the Ren Faires every year, which was related to this winery in some fashion or another.? It was there that my wife Sarah had her first meade or really any wine other than grape wine.? I’m something of a meade aficionado, owing to my experience at hippie fests and other gatherings, but not Sarah.

Still, we both fell in love with the mead that they had at this place, and when we were preparing to get married, we both agreed that we needed to have some meade for the reception.? So, we trekked out to Sterling only to find the place had closed and they were now in Seneca Falls.? So the next weekend, we went out to Seneca Falls and bought copious amounts of honey-hootch for the wedding.

You can buy their stuff online, and I highly recommend you do.? If I could have a tap that ran cold Golden Delicious, their apple wine, I would surely do it.
