CJS Vineyards & Aurelius Winery

Join us as we re-open for our fifth year. My journey with wine began in the 1950’s as a boy helping his uncle make wine in the cellar of his home in New York City. I remember the grapes, the press, the barrels, the aroma and the wine. In our family wine was part of the evening meal, everyday wines to enjoy with food. Fifty years later I still take pleasure in making handcrafted wines for our everyday enjoyment. Using grapes from our vineyards and other select Finger Lakes vineyards we make crisp, clean, exciting wines in dry and semi-dry styles that compliment a wide variety of cuisines, “a wine for every meal”.
