Vetter Vineyards Winery
A charming hill side family farm where 20 varieties of wine grapes are grown for finely crafted wines.
You’ll find Vetter Vineyards Winery in the original farm house on a gorgeous hill side estate in Westfield, New York. Owners Mark and Barbara Lancaster welcome visitors to their family farm and delight in serving up tastes of their award-winning wines in their comfortable tasting room and gift shop.
The winery was established by the Vetter family in 1987 and purchased by the Lancaster’s in 2003. Mark had been a winemaker for more than 20 years and Barbara had worked in the industry for several years herself. Together they decided to take Vetter Vineyards to new heights, striving to become one of Chautauqua County’s premiere boutique wineries.
Most of the grapes used in Vetter’s wines are grown on the 100-acre estate. 20 different varieties of grapes are harvested including Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Zweigelt. The Lancaster’s produce small batches of high-quality wine, taking care with every step of the process from caring for the vines, to bottling, and finally, to pouring wine in their tasting room.
Vetter Vineyards Winery takes part in many festivals and farmers markets, and in March and April they team up with area restaurants to sponsor winemaker dinners. But they especially enjoy making new friends and educating them about wine. You’ll not only receive a warm welcome at Vetter’s; you’ll experience a family-friendly farm atmosphere and wines that will thrill your taste buds.
