Tasting Room/Reservations

Our ‘rustic sleek’ tasting room is a perfect backdrop for you to sip and enjoy our wines.

Tasting Room

The Building

After an extensive renovation, the building that used to house Dodge’s Cider Mill now houses our manufacturing room, tasting room and gift shop. The décor is ‘roughly sleek’ with an eclectic combination of original wood beams, reclaimed wood, leather chairs, contemporary lighting and sound system.  It is truly a unique and inviting space to relax, sip, snack and shop.

The Experience

When the winery is open, the tasting room is open! You may sample any wine you choose or you can purchase a “flight” which will give you the opportunity to evaluate at least four wine samples and hear the story behind each wine. We also sell wine by the glass and small bites.

Reservations & Private Events

Because we have limited space, we request that you make a reservation for parties between 6-8 people by emailing Lauren at tastingroom@millriverwines.com. Otherwise it’s a first-come, first-serve basis.

If your group is between 8-14 people, we recommend one of our Wine Tasting Packages, hosted on our special events table! We have one that will suit your needs ~ Sip & Swirl, Bridal Party or Corporate. We also rent the winery for larger celebrations (25+ people). You will find information on the wine tasting packages and private events under the News & Events tab at Host an Event at MRW.  Please email Laura at laura@millriverwines.com for information or questions regarding wine tasting packages and private rentals.

‘Dirt to Bottle’ Tours

During the warmer months (May through October), ‘Dirt to Bottle’ tasting tours are offered on select Saturdays and Sundays.  Please look under the Events tab for tour times and ticket information.

Specialty Products

We carry Ariston Extra Virgin Olive Oil imported from Greece and Ariston Balsamic Vinegar imported from Modena, Italy that can be purchased prepackaged or as an economical refillable containers. We also feature a large selection of Mill River private label preserves and salsas along with gourmet dips from Halladay’s Harvest Barn.

In addition to the tasting room, the winery property contains our manufacturing facility, where all our Select, Mill River and Plum Island wines are produced and bottled. If you are interested in a tour of our facilities…just ask!  Our vineyard, planted in spring 2012, consists of apple trees, Cayuga White Grapes and Frontenac Grapes.
