Matt & Sandy Downey Holding Wine Bottles at Magnus Ridge Winery

Matt & Sandy Downey, Owners / Wine Lovers

Magnus Ridge Winery, owned by Sandy and Matt Downey was established in 2007, the year of our first harvest. Situated on our 73 acres of land are our Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Lemberger, Traminette, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Noiret grapes.

Making wine is a passion for our Wine Maker and Owner Matt who has over 20 years of experience making wine. Magnus Ridge Winery and Waterlilies CafΓ© are situated in a beautiful park-like setting on the west side of Seneca Lake on State Route 14 in Rock Stream NY.

Future Plans for Magnus Ridge Winery include relocation of the winery to the visitor center site along with cottages for overnight guests.
