Anyela’s Vineyards Skaneateles Lake Winery began three generations ago in Eastern Europe

The story of Anyela’s Vineyards began three generations ago in Eastern Europe and continues today on the hillside high above Skaneateles Lake. The Nocek family combines its viticultural experience with the cooler climate patterns and fertile soil to grow our select grapes.

Unlike other vineyards along neighboring Finger Lakes, we protect our vines from the cold after the fall harvest. One by one, we carefully remove them from the trellises and bury them in the rich earth to insolate the sensitive primary buds, which eventually become the fruit. In spring, we re-trellis the vine for maximum sun exposure. We also control our grape yield to cultivate the ripest, most flavorful fruit.

Lourdes Camp Skaneateles Lake

This summer is our 66th consecutive year at Ten Mile Point on the Eastern Shore of Skaneateles Lake, following 21 years at Morning Star Manor on Little York Lake. The camp has 100 acres of land enhanced by large shade trees, sprawling lawns, surrounding hills and Ten Mile Creek, in addition to 1,500 feet of lakefront. There are 18 cabins, a main lodge, infirmary, chapel, dining hall, canteen, boathouse and modern bathrooms.
