Jim and Ruth Hundertmark first became fans of the Finger Lakes in the 1990s, while vacationing in the region.
When the opportunity to sell their Baltimore home arose, they returned in 2011 to launch Lacey Magruder Vineyard and Winery in Geneva. Setting the next chapter of their lives in motion involved renovating the 19th-century post-and-beam barn that now houses the tasting room.
The Seneca Lake winery produces 800 cases annually, including Cabernet Sauvignon and two styles of Chardonnay. The couple expect to buy local grapes for the foreseeable future, though they have planted two acres of Sauvignon Blanc vines that will bear fruit in 2014 or 2015.
Tasting room hours: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, from April through May. 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday, from June through October. Reservations required for groups of 16 or more.
Accessibility: Fully accessible.
