Inspire Moore Winery & Vineyard | Story

Winelight

Founded in 2007, with the first vintages a 2006 Riesling and Syrah, our winemaking is focused on premium vineyard driven Finger Lakes wines. Inspire Moore produces over 12 different wines, including Riesling, Gruner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Traminette, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Zweigelt, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and recently our award-winning ‘Best of NY state’ Blaufrankisch to name a few.

Riesling is the dominant varietal in the cellar where we a produce a juicy, quaffable style in LOVE to vineyard designated styles in the Nathaniel J. Moore series. We have recently introduced Zweigelt and Gruener Veltliner to our portfolio as these are cool climate varieties that held a particular interest to Tim from his time spent studying winemaking in Austria. It was through his experiences studying abroad and at UCD that Tim developed a unique vision for creating cool climate wines which his son learned from him and continues today. Working with his California-trained winemaker father has also molded Nathaniel into a winemaker who is driven to extract the best reds in the Finger Lakes.

Philosophy & Sustainability

We searched all over the Finger Lakes for the winery site which resonated with us the most in all ways—beauty, functionality, history, lush vineyards and rolling hills with an abundance of artistry all around. The Village of Naples is a historic spot loaded with many years of grape history, grape pie, wine, artists and music. We are passionate people who constantly work to capture the true characteristics of the vineyards where our wines are developed. It is in the land and the people who cultivate the flavors that the artistry of our wine begins.

Sustainability is one of the cornerstones to all of our business practices. We work with growers who implement Vine-Balance practices developed through Cornell Cooperative Extension for the grapes that we purchase. We compost all our grape pomace that is left over from harvest, which is utilized in the farm garden or vineyard. That is only the start to our sustainable practices at our winery & vineyard.

Family

Family owned and operated businesses are an important part of the US economy. To earn this tag, a winery has two or more family members involved, and the majority ownership lies within the family.

1st Gen

Starting your own business is hard, especially in the wine industry where there are so many uncontrolled variables. Wineries earn this tag if the current owners and operators are also the founders.

Woman Led

We highlight women led businesses on our site because most winery owners and winemakers are men. To earn this tag the winery must be majority women owned or have a female winemaker.
