Our Owners

The new partners at White Springs Winery, Jody Earle & David DeMarco, are excited to honor the rich history of White Springs Winery.  They welcome you to come in to enjoy a relaxed and tasteful experience.

The Original Owners: Carl and Elizabeth Fribolin (previous owners, pictured here)  Carl was no stranger to agriculture. He founded Seedway, a seed-growing and distribution business in Hall, NY in 1963. In the beginning, they serviced farmers in New York state, as well as throughout New England. As business increased, Carl eventually operated six seed production farms to meet the growing needs of his customers. Although he sold Seedway to Agway Inc. of Syracuse in 1987, he remained active in the business. Carl purchased White Springs Farms in 1973 and used the deep sandy soil to produce seeds for his company.  In 2003, Carl wanted to address a problem with soil erosion caused by the sloping nature of the farmland. This lead to the planting of 13 acres of grapes and White Springs Winery was born.  We also offer 10 locally crafted beers through Glass Factory Bay Brewing.

Winery History

To address a problem with soil erosion caused by the sloping nature of the White Springs Farm, in 2003 Carl Fribolin, at the age of 85, planted 13 acres of grapes and White Springs Winery was born.  The vineyard subsequently expanded to 40 acres of principally vinifera grapes, along with a few hybrids developed by the NY State Agricultural Experiment Station and Cornell University.  The vineyard was planted by laser and the rows are a beautiful sight.  As Carl was known to say, “Two thousand feet, straight as a string.” Morten Hallgren, owner and winemaker for Ravines Wine Cellars, began making wine for White Springs in 2011.  The following year, 2012, Ravines Wine Cellars purchased the vineyard and production facility. In 2013, our tasting room was expanded to include Glass Factory Bay Brewing offering locally crafted beer and root beer tastings.  In 2015, we added Rootstock Original Hard Cider to our Brew House list.  In May of 2017, business partners Jody Earle and David DeMarco purchased White Springs, and are committed to continuing the rich history of fine wines and a relaxed and friendly experience for their visitors.  We look forward to your visit!

We are able accommodate parties of up to 4 people, Thursday – Monday, between 11 am – 4 pm.  We are unable to accept groups of 4+ people at this time.

Our staff takes great pride in providing you with a spectacular experience.  Our goal is to keep you coming back and telling everyone of your experience at White Springs Winery.  Stop in and say “Hello”, pull up a chair and join us in enjoying our spectacular views and fine wines and brews.
