Welcome to the Rochester Area Home Winemakers Website

We make wine for personal enjoyment, and our site is open to anyone interested in this rewarding hobby. Our club is for amateur winemakers who are willing and eager to learn the fine art of making, and occasionally tasting, one of nature's finest foods. If you live in the Rochester area, or anywhere in western upstate New York, come meet with us. 

Let us know you've been here by signing our guestbook. Please use the contacts page for live email links to contact us.
