Deer Run Winery is a family owned farm winery whose humble beginnings grew from one man's love of making wine. Wine making has long been a passion of George Kuyon, who built Deer Run Winery in 2003 on a 20 acre parcel of farmland after his retirement from Kodak. His son, Scott, was working as a marine mechanic in Florida when he heard the news that his father was planning to open a winery. Scott decided to move back north to help his Father fulfill his dream. Now, over a decade later, Deer Run has established itself as an award-winning winery at the north end of Conesus Lake that is here to stay.
Deer Run Winery grows about 30 percent of the grapes used to make our wines, the remainder of the grapes needed are purchased from other Finger Lakes vineyards. In our 5 acre vineyard we grow Vidal, Valvin Muscat, Noiret, Corot Noir, Traminette, Marechal Foch & Frontenac varieties.
