What began as a family dream has evolved into a flourishing, successful business and one of the most highly regarded wineries in the Finger lakes. In the early 1980’s, Len and Judy Wiltberger had the opportunity to purchase 30 acres of land overlooking beautiful Keuka Lake. With their love of wine and winemaking experience, they planted several wine grape varieties at the site with help from their children and Len’s sisters. They opened a tasting room in the mid 1980’s, adjacent to the vineyards, as an outlet for their premium wines. Keuka Spring’s first vintage was in 1985. Throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s the Wiltberger family produced and sold wine primarily out of this tasting room.
