To the Spicola family, wine isn't simply something sipped on at dinner or during a party. Rather, it's the family heritage, which forms a bridge between generations. Today, Dominic Spicola runs the Winery of Ellicottville with his son-in-law, but years ago, he worked alongside his father, Francesco, an Italian immigrant schooled in his home country's winemaking tradition. Together, the duo crushed and pressed annual harvests into barrels of wine, making sure their relatives had enough to fill glasses at dinner and water balloons at family picnics throughout the year.

Today, Dominic and his son-in-law mesh this Old World wisdom with New World techniques to craft chardonnays and merlots, reds and whites. They sell their bottles from an unassuming shop on Monroe Street, where sky-blue walls, family pictures, and shelved knickknacks surround a sun-splashed bar.

When Nana and Papa Varallo brought winemaking to America from Italy, they unknowingly brought a livelihood for their successors. Son Nicholas made wine in Papa's basement from the age of 8, then taught the techniques to children Dominic, Cristina, and Americo Varallo. Now all three generations contribute to the development of the family's Spring Lake Winery, which offers group vineyard excursions, rentable wedding space, and, of course, the Varallo's award-winning wines.

Old Firehouse Winery ferments more than 20 full-flavored vinos along the glistening shores of Lake Erie. Diners can admire the dining room with its shelves of glossy wine bottles to the gently lapping lake. Visitors can opt to purchase sweet and dry wine tastings ($1 for two tasting trays), which each include 10 samples of single-grape and blended varietals. After sampling the full range of sweet and juicy concords to dry and full-bodied chambourcins, duos can imagine how each exquisite vintage would look inside their souvenir wine glasses and how advantageous the imprinted corkscrews would be during a close-range jousting match. In the warmer months, patrons can swill, sniff, and sip from a romantic lakeside overlook on the outdoor tasting patio and supplement the winery outing with a ride on a historic ferris wheel.

For more than a century, the Woodbury family has tilled the rich, porous soil of the Fredonia area to craft one-of-a-kind, flavorful wines from homegrown grapes. The vineyard’s serene surroundings—from the doting shelter of the nearby Allegheny uplands to the temperate words of encouragement from Lake Erie—work together to rear aromatic, mature, and emotionally balanced crops. Sippers may indulge in the complex flavors of a full-bodied cabernet ($24/bottle), the peppery floral notes of the Gewürztraminer ($24/bottle), or the regional sweetness of a niagara ($9.50). In addition to bottling up high-quality grape juice, the expert vintners at Woodbury shake down local orchards for refreshing fruit wines, such as a tastefully tart cranberry ($12) or delicate apple ($12), simultaneously capable of banishing thin-skinned doctors and impressing teachers with its semidry personality and ability to rinse chalkboards.

Savage Winery's name may be a bit of a misnomer, since everything about the farm winery is, well, sweet. There are the wines for starters: sweet concord, niagara, vidal, and loganberry wines are the specialty here, featured along with seasonal strawberry and blueberry wines. Then, of course, there's the location—Savage Winery is situated on an alpaca farm and is also home to a few other rescue animals, cultivating an environment that is both welcoming and compassionate. Of course, that doesn't mean things don't get a little lively now and again. Owner Rich Byington keeps plenty of activities around to stoke his guests' competitive sides while they sample the vintages, including classic lawn games like cornhole, croquet, and whac-a-weed.
