A brief history
Founded in 2007, with the first vintages a 2006 Riesling and Syrah, our winemaking is focused on premium vineyard driven Finger Lakes wines. Inspire Moore produces over 12 different wines, including Riesling, Gruner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Traminette, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Zweigelt, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and recently our award-winning ‘Best of NY state’ Blaufrankisch to name a few.
Riesling is the dominant varietal in the cellar where we a produce a juicy, quaffable style in LOVE to vineyard designated styles in the Nathaniel J. Moore series. We have recently introduced Zweigelt and Gruener Veltliner to our portfolio as these are cool climate varieties that held a particular interest to Tim from his time spent studying winemaking in Austria. It was through his experiences studying abroad and at UCD that Tim developed a unique vision for creating cool climate wines which his son learned from him and continues today. Working with his California-trained winemaker father has also molded Nathaniel into a winemaker who is driven to extract the best reds in the Finger Lakes.
We invite you to experience our award winning wines!
