Come to Fall Bright, The Winemakers Shoppe!
Fall Bright, The Winemakers Shoppe is located on a country road snuggled against one of the oldest continuously worked vineyards in the Finger Lakes in NY. This vineyard site was first planted to grapes in 1865 and though the varieties that grow now are not of those original vines, it has been continuously worked. Fall Bright supplies quality Finger Lakes produced grapes and juices, plus the latest needs in wine and beer making supplies for the amateur winemaker and brewer. High on Hyatt Hill Road overlooking Keuka Lake near Wayne, NY, a picturesque old grape-packing barn provides an appropriate setting for the shop.
Established in 1977, Pa'tridge Run Farms is a family owned vineyard dedicated to growing quality wine grapes and providing quality juices for the amateur winemaker.
It was partnered with a modern juice plant and supply (winemaking and brewing) shop, Fall Bright, The Winemakers Shoppe, in 1978. After a couple of years in business, our winemakers were requesting more Vinifera and French Hybrid varieties than we grew. So in 1982 we, Tom and Marcy Mitchell, along with Tom Jr., Megan and Corlin, began replanting our farm to grape varieties that were or would be in demand by amateur winemakers. To date there are 20 acres of premium grape varieties including 8 Vinifera, 14 French Hybrids, and 5 American , plus 3 table grape varieties.
We have several different trellis systems, never a dull moment. Tom and I
put this presentation together for a winemaking seminar and he did not get much past the
first couple of pages! Flachbogen is not in this presentation nor is his
Keuka Delta system that we have the Riesling on.
Several other varieties are purchased from other quality-oriented vineyards in the Finger Lakes. Attention to detail in the vineyard from pruning, to vine care, crop regulation and selection of optimum harvest times assures the quality our customers demand.
Grapes are picked both by hand (for grape orders) and by machine. The fresh fruit is crushed and de-stemmed and pressed with an imported 4-ton bladder press. From there the juice flows into refrigerated bulk tanks for chilling to 30 degrees F. It may then be settled and/or filtered, then pumped into tanks in a walk-in cooler to hold for pickup.
Red Vinifera varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Carmine, Merlot and Pinot Noir are sold as grapes only, assuring a HIGH QUALITY WINE for the hard working winemaker. All other varieties are available as grapes or juice. Crushing and de-stemming into your container is included free with grape orders. Advance orders are recommended; though not always necessary, they help avoid disappointment.
and juices must be picked up at Fall Bright and cannot be shipped.
However, wine and brewing supplies are
shipped by UPS or USPS every day.
