Hello and thanks for stopping by,
My name is Tim Post and I am the owner of Autumn's Harvest Vineyard and winery. I have been making wine and cider for around 10 years now. When nearing retirement, I decided to pursue a Master's Degree in Enology and Viticulture. I graduated Summa cum laude in 2020. I worked at several wineries in the Finger Lakes region before returning to the Cambridge area, buying a vineyard and opening a micro-winery.
I offer several different wines, from dry to sweet, red and white, all from cold-hardy grapes.
I also offer a variety of ciders made from local apples.
Thanks for your interest in my winery/ vineyard, and please stop by to visit.
I am an American Wine Society certified wine judge. and have judged numerous amateur and professional wine . I have also judged several cider competitions.
I worked for NYS Fish and Wildlife for over three decades as a biologist and then manager. I had extensive experience in plant ecology and soil science which provides me with an understanding of vineyard management and production.
Before I opened Autumn's Harvest Winery I was a home wine, cider, and beer maker for many years. As my interest (one might say obsession) grew, I decided to take the next step in my education. So, I decided to pursue a Master's Degree in Enology and Viticulture. I completed my coursework in 2018 and then completed an internship working in the wineries and vineyards at Fox Run Winery and Keuka Springs Winery in the Finger Lakes during 2019. In May of 2020, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the William H. Darr College of Agriculture (part of Missouri State University) with a Master's degree in Enology and Viticulture.
My experience and education provide the expertise to grow exceptional quality grapes and make distinctive high-quality wines. A combination of thoughtful stewardship, which includes always incorporating sustainable use, and scientific wine production methods form the basis of producing enjoyable wines. I handcraft small batches of distinctive and delicious wines for your drinking pleasure.
