One of the first wineries established in 1976 under the farm winery act, Merritt Estate Winery is a family-run winery dedicated to producing the area's finest wines. We are the proud producers of the Original Wine Slush, first created by Christi Merritt at the New York State Fair in 1984 when our then popular Sangria Wine Cooler was first frozen! Today, we've expanded our line to include our natural pomegranate flavored XTC Wine Slush, and our pina colada & blue raspberry 5 O'Clock Wine Slush.
Our estate is home to four unique tasting rooms and experiences. They're all fun (in their own way) and they're all staffed by friendly and knowledgeable people who agree working at a place like this is as much fun as visiting. Sample in one building of your choice or experience the full tour and sample in all four tasting rooms. With our expansive selection of hand-crafted wines, brews, hard ciders, and craft sodas there's bound to be something for everyone who visits.
