A lot of people fall in love with the idea of becoming a winemaker — and a honeymoon is probably one of the most typical moments to have such fantasies! But most of us don’t then come home and become successful winemakers. That’s the story of Vinny Aliperti, winemaker and owner of Billsboro Winery. He’s been making wine now for over 20 years. Together with his wife Kim, a long-time wine enthusiast and manager of operations, the two own and operate Billsboro Winery.

A century old barn is home to their main tasting room and sits on an idyllic 60 acres overlooking the northern end of Seneca Lake, in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Surrounded by century-old walnut trees, terraced fields and a deep wooded ravine, the property is a tranquil place to live and work.

Don’t let their laid-back, humble demeanor fool you, they are making serious wine— their dynamic approach has earned praise both locally and nationally.
