In 1974, Andrew Colaruotolo started Casa Larga Vineyards as a hobby, seeking to produce wine reminiscent of wines produced by his family's vineyard in Italy. Casa Larga's first 3 wines were produced in 1978, earning silver and gold medals in the first competition in which they were entered.
Now, 35 years later, Casa Larga Vineyards continues this tradition of excellence - producing high quality, award winning wines, and growing to be one of the leading wine producers in New York's Finger Lakes Region.
The Colaruotolo family has carried on Andrew Colaruotolo's dream of building a quality vineyard, seeking to not only showcase the quality wines that can be produced in New York State, but also to remain dedicated to preserving the Italian heritage from which the vineyard has grown.
