About Red Tail Ridge Winery:

Red Tail Ridge Winery (RTR) is a James Beard Award semifinalist (2019, 2020) boutique winery in Penn Yan, New York that specializes in Riesling, Chardonnay, Blaufrankisch, Pinot Noir, Dornfelder, and Teroldego.

All heating and cooling for wine production is provided by geothermal energy.

About Nancy Irelan:

Nancy Irelan is the co-owner and winemaker for Red Tail Ridge Winery (RTR) and has been a part of the wine industry for over 33 years. Nancy previously served as Vice President of Viticulture & Enology Research and Development for E&J Gallo Winery. She received her PhD in grape genetics while working in the Viticulture and Enology Department at UC-Davis. Red Tail Ridge is a personal journey and part of Nancy’s continual quest for deliciousness. The winery’s primary portfolio is focused on the consistent and reliable production of ultra-premium dry red and white wines. However, Nancy has been known to wade into the deep end of the creative pool, where she has applied her years of winegrowing experience and technical knowledge to the production of more “eclectic” projects involving indigenous microorganisms, skin fermented whites, pét nats, uncommon red vinifera varieties, and funky vineyard experiments, including noble rot. Basically, Nancy is a hedonist, and a major proponent of embracing whatever Mother Nature throws at her and guiding it to the most delicious outcome.
