About the Winery at Marjim Manor

The Winery at Marjim Manor, part of the Niagara Wine Trail, is owned by Margo Sue Bittner. The Winery at Marjim manor is located in Western New York's fruit belt. This W.O.W. (Woman Owned Winery) is owned by Margo Sue Bittner.

The Marjim name comes from a blending of her first name with that of her husband, Jim. It is a name they created 35 years ago when they began dairy farming.

The Winery is a truly a family affair: Margo Sue Bittner is president; Margo's daughter, Janet Walker assists with sales and marketing. The fruit comes from Bittner-Singer Orchards, where Margo's husband Jim, is president. Their sons work full time at Bittner-Singer Orchards also.

The 9500 square foot mansion has a unique appearance and history. Formerly called Appleton Hall, it is built of bricks imported from Italy by its original owner, Shubal Merritt, who bought the property from the Holland Land Company. It features a wrap-around enclosed porch, carefully restored to its former glory.

The mansion, built in the 1800's, was originally a farmhouse and later a summer retreat for the Sisters of St. Joseph convent. The house even has resident ghosts. Visit the Tasting Room to hear the whole story. No recent sightings have been reported…yet.

Even if you don't see any of the resident ghosts, you can still say hello to one of our Manor Cats!
