Winery of Ellicottville turns EVL White

The Winery of Ellicottville has been turning heads in Ellicottville and tastings around the region since opening in the Fall of 2010. The wines have been winning awards at festivals and have been flying off the shelves in their store. The wines are created by Dominic Spicola and his Son-In-Law ,with the careful consideration that Dominic's father Francesco Spicola brought from Italy in 1968. They combine the old world care with new world techniques that produce the Winery of Ellicottville’s award winning wines. There latest creation is the EVL White, which will be release for sale later this summer 2012.

If you stop by the winery for a tasting the EVL White is included, which just teases your palate. The white wine has nice nose and enjoyable finish. There are hints of apple and possible citrus tones and leans towards the dry side on our review. The label is currently in the designing process. Once the label has been finalized the wine should be ready for sale at their location on 14 Monroe Street in Elllicottville, NY.
