In the heart of winemaking country, in the Finger Lakes region, stands a unique museum dedicated to the history and beauty of an ancient enterprise.
In 1966, Walter Taylor opened Bully Hill Vineyards at Hammondsport in Steuben County. A year later, two additional buildings were opened as the “Finger Lakes Wine Museum.” In 1972, Taylor renamed the museum after his father, Greyton H. Taylor.
In one building, called the Cooper Shop, visitors can study a large collection of tools used in the barrel and winemaking industries. While in The Walter S. Taylor Art Gallery visitors can study over 200 pieces of artwork including many original wine label paintings.
