Boundary Breaks Vineyard is a Finger Lakes, New York producer of Rieslings in multiple styles. They were founded in 2008, and their first harvest was in 2011.

The Finger Lakes region has an ideal, cool climate for white wines like Riesling. From the start, Boundary Breaks decided to focus on Riesling and planted four different clones. These include Geisenheim clones 110, 98 and 239; and clone 90 from Neustadt. Over time, they’ve leanred learned how each clone behaves in our soils and climate, and they manage them individually to bring out their most desirable characteristics.

Boundary Breaks employs labor-intensive vineyard practices that are designed to produce the most desirable character in the Riesling fruit. This includes using the Scott Henry trellis system; early shoot-thinning, cluster-thinning, hedging and leaf removal. They hand-pick all fruit, typically in three phases. They are aiming to select the ideal fruit at the optimum levels of sugar and acidity to produce a series of outstanding Riesling wines across the spectrum from very dry to very sweet
