The Greyton H. Taylor Wine Museum is dedicated to Walter S. Taylor's father Greyton Hoyt Taylor. In the late 1960’s Greyton H Taylor’s son, Walter, founded Bully Hill Vineyards on the original Taylor Winery site. In 1972, he established the Wine Museum. Within the Museum complex there are two buildings for our visitors to see, a Replica Cooper Shop, Wine Museum and the Walter S. Taylor Art Galley.
The Museum is currently open Friday - Sunday 11am-5pm.

Replica Cooper Shop
The Cooper Shop Building is a replica to some extent of the Hammondsport Cooperage Company 1875-1915. The building has an outstanding collection of Coopers tools along with a 70 minute film on the art of barrel making. Memorabilia from the early days of the New York State wine industry may also be found.
The museum is home to an extensive collection of antique winemaking equipment, Prohibition memorabilia, historic artifacts from the early NY wine industry and a collection of Presidential wine glasses dating back to Abraham Lincoln!
Walter S. Taylor Art Gallery
Newly renovated, the Walter S. Taylor Art Gallery is filled with over 200 pieces of work from the brush of one of the most creative and provocative artists in the New York State wine industry. Some of the work on display consists of the original label paintings which can still be seen on our wines, such as the Love My Goat label, Le Goat Blush and Goat White.
