Small batch wines, made as a tribute to our patriarch, Edio Delfino
He was a true inspiration to the entire Delfino Family. Often described as hardworking, intelligent, strong, sharp, and driven, it is an honor making wines as a tribute to him.Our Story
Check out our Edio experiences below
Reservations are recommended during our fall Apple Hill season. However, we do try to accommodate walk-ins whenever possible! During the fall, we offer our Edio Tastings. Grazing Grouse Pairings and Commissioner Tours are available in the spring and summer. We ask for no outside food at the tasting room, but do have Grazing Grouse cheese & charcuterie boxes available daily.
Here at Edio Vineyards, we seek to give everyone a spectacular visit. When you arrive you will be seated overlooking our entire farm and started with a splash of our heritage hard cider. We then will take you through 4 of our small lot wines and explain our family story along with how each wine was made. The experience is intimate, educational, and relaxing and you will never have to leave your seat!Make a Reservation
