Johnson Estate Winery
Johnson Estate Winery is the oldest estate or farm winery in New York State. Established in 1961 and now owned by a third generation of Johnsons, grapes from our 115 acres of vineyards are carefully tended to make over 40 award-winning wines under the guidance of winemaker Jeff Murphy. They include European classics like Riesling, American Heritage wines like Concord, and dessert wines including port, sherry and ice wines. Quality, not quantity, is our governing principle whether we are growing grapes, making wine, or sharing those wines with our customers.

May WineWinemaker, Jeff Murphy’s inspiration for the annual spring release of May Wine came from Germany — where the arrival of spring is celebrated with a white wine punch with strawberries and sweet woodruff, a woodland herb called “the master of the woods”. This delightful Vidal Blanc sparkling wine has been infused with dried sweet woodruff giving it fresh grassy notes.
Sparkling TraminetteTraminette vines are hardy for cold climate grape production and the wine has lovely aromas of lychee and rose with notes of spice in the finish and is an excellent wine for appetizers, main courses, and even desserts.
Semi-Dry RieslingOur Semi-Dry Riesling was the only North American Riesling to earn a Double Gold medal at the 2019 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition. Winemaker, Jeff Murphy, prefers to permit estate-grown grapes to express themselves in the wine he makes — and our Semi-Dry Riesling does this beautifully with mineral notes and light fruity flavors.
