Not going to lie, I was not very successful in completing my summer bucket list this year. One item I did get to check off was Spring Lake Winery, fitting it in right at the end of the season! Paige and I spent a couple of hours here on a sunny Friday afternoon a couple of weeks ago, tasting, wandering the property and watching them set up for the first of 3 weddings that weekend.
We walked in and were promptly greeted by friendly staff who walked us through our tasting, which included Zia Minx, their slightly carbonated moscato that won best white wine at this year’s Taste of Buffalo. I don’t particularly like wine, but this was so yummy!
Spring Lake Winery is on a gorgeous property, as most wineries are. There really is a small lake, and it’s encouraged that you take your glass of wine with you as you explore the trails around the lake. Obviously you didn’t need to tell us this twice; we explored the trails and vineyards before heading inside for a refill.
I went for a glass of wine, because “When in Rome” and all that jazz. Paige chose an Ellicotville Blueberry Wheat, because we really are beer people. We were both pretty impressed with the beer selection.
For us, this is the closest winery to home, so we’ll definitely be back!
