Winery of Ellicottville

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 Sam, 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 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.
