- Nathan Kendall is a Finger Lakes native who worked at wineries in Sonoma, Willamette Valley, New Zealand, Australia, and Germany before returning home to Seneca Lake.
- He feels that the best way to express the terroir of each site is through slow spontaneous fermentations followed by aging on the gross lees.
- The wines are gently filtered and never fined.
