At this time of year, with weddings and other events, Glenora Wine Cellars might have most of its 150 employees working the weekend on the southwest side of Seneca Lake in Yates County or at its sister winery in Seneca County.
About once a week, a horse and wagon pulls up to the delivery entrance of Glenora’s restaurant, carrying eggs from a nearby Amish farm. Nearly as often, a tractor trailer from Waterloo Container, 40 miles away, arrives with bottles that go into the 52,000 cases of wine Glenora produces each year.
And maybe once or twice a year, when increased production means ordering a new fermentation tank, the tank is made at Vance Metal Fabricators in Geneva and driven 30 miles south.
So goes one winery’s portion of a $3.8 billion industry in New York.
