Randolph O’Neill Vineyard is the husband and wife team of Angela (née Randolph) and Kelley O’Neill. It grew from their mutual love for great wine and a gorgeous land. They produce limited quantity wines using estate grown Riesling and Cabernet Franc grapes from a small vineyard a few hundred yards from Cayuga Lake in New York’s Finger Lakes region.
Kelley, who once made his living as a musician, makes the wine, manages the vineyard, and works as a one-man sales staff. Angela, a former zoo commissary technician, gamely picks grapes when she is not busy with her current paying gig as a financial planner-advisor. For them, viticulture is a lifestyle choice, not a financial quest.
Kelley and Angela intend for ROV to remain small, producing hundreds of cases rather than thousands. This means they can always guarantee a high level of attention to detail and devotion to quality.
