Casa Larga (Finger Lakes)

 

In 1974, Andrew Colaruotolo started Casa Larga Vineyards as a hobby, seeking to produce wine reminiscent of wines produced by his family’s vineyard in Italy. Today, 35 years later, Casa Larga Vineyards continues this tradition of excellence – producing high quality, award winning wines, and growing to be one of the leading wine producers in New York’s Finger Lakes Region.
