Who We Are
One of the Finger Lake’s most beautiful destinations, The Tasting Bar(n) was initially designed as a Canted Queen Post Barn used as a horse stable and to store hay and grain. The original structure was built between 1865 and 1870 it was later modified in the 1950s to encompass a milking parlor. The barn was held in an Estate for decades and tragically fell into a state of disrepair. Luckily, the property was purchased from the Estate before the barn collapsed and the structure was disassembled in 2014. The original timber frame was restored and reassembled in its current location between 2015 and 2016. The timeless structure, with its completely exposed, original timber frame was opened to the public as The Tasting Bar(n) in 2016.
The Tasting Bar(n) serves as the tasting room for Ryan William Vineyard - a 100% Estate Grown and Bottled Farm Winery who’s vineyard and production facility are located 3.6 miles north of The Tasting Bar(n) in Hector, NY. Tastings, flights, glasses and food pairings are all offered which presents a fantastic opportunity to taste wines from one of the highest quality growers and producers in the Finger Lakes.
