The Rustic Barn is a large timber framed post-and-beam barn, built in 1826 with stone from the Erie Canal. This structure has been preserved, yet modernized with ladies and gents bathrooms and is handicap accessible. It is very versatile, and can be used in conjunction with our other venues or with the addition of a tent.
There is a raised platform with a magnificent cut glass chandelier, so that the Bride & Groom and their Bridal party or event leader can see and be seen. This is a perfect place to hold a wedding ceremony, have a sit down, buffet or family style dinner, and it even converts to a ‘night club’ with the doors wide open for dancing under the stars.
This venue provides a space with a unique rustic ambiance that can’t be beat.

The Vineyards are very popular at any time of the year. Some bride and grooms choose to have an open air ceremony overlooking the vineyards, the 1000 tree apple orchard, and acres of sunflowers, or the stark backdrop of a black and white wedding with a blanket of snow signifying ‘New Beginnings’.
Any of the very versatile venues can be combined to create a truly personalized Wedding or Event at Freedom Run Winery.
The Vineyard Manor House was also built in 1826 with stone from the Erie Canal, and has been restored to its original grandeur. It is decorated in a 'shabby, yet chic' elegant décor, with chandeliers, 12' ceilings, and silk swagged drapery on the double hung windows. It is a perfect place for the Bridal Party to get ready upstairs, while the Groom, along with his buddies, relax on the ground floor, before they head to the ceremony venue. There is a perfect 'photo op’ for the Bride to capture that special first moment in her wedding dress, as she pauses on the curved wooden staircase with her Bridal Party.
There is an Inn Keeper who lives in the house and offers the Master with Ensuite and a Four Poster Bedroom with shared bathroom through Airbnb, as well as a concierge service.

The Tasting Room offers a contemporary feel, with a floating maple ceiling, and stone accenting the walls. A pair of granite topped bars, fronted with colorful 'blown glass' flowers and bamboo flooring set the stage for this elegant venue. Chocolate leather sofas and tall hand crafted barrel tables finish the elegant Tasting Room.
This venue can be easily combined with the other venues, and is often used for the initial meet and greet, and can be set with the dessert tables after a meal in the Barrel Room, and as a dance area spilling out to a covered patio.
The Tasting Room
The Barrel Room adjoins the Tasting Room through a floor to ceiling, wall to wall set of glass doors that leads into a double height room which features original art, large stainless steel wine tanks and oak barrels which line the area that can be back lit with subtle mood lighting.
