In Wine One Beholds the Heart of Another


Owners Cynthia West-Chamberlain and Michael D. Chamberlain have had a passion for good wine and food for many years. Black Willow Winery has fulfilled a dream of theirs to share this passion with family, friends and guests.

Black Willow Winery is located on the south shore of Lake Ontario, on West Lake Road in Burt, New York, conveniently in the heart of the Niagara Wine Trail, USA. The winery sits on 43 beautiful, country acres and has the best soil and drainage in the area suited to growing grapes.

West Lake Road is a part of the Great Lakes Seaway Trail, a major travel route for many summer tourists. The Seaway Trail reaches from Messina, NY in the east along the St. Lawrence River, curves around the southern shore of Lake Ontario, along the Niagara River and by the eastern shores of Lake Erie and on into Pennsylvania.

We offer weddings, private parties, corporate events and wine related seminars.
