Welcome to Inspire Moore!

Fingerlakes Winery & Vineyard

Founded in 2007, with the first vintages a 2006 Riesling and Syrah, our winemaking is focused on premium vineyard driven Finger Lakes wines. Inspire Moore produces over 12 different wines, including Riesling, Gruner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Traminette, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Zweigelt, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and recently our award-winning ‘Best of NY state’ Blaufrankisch to name a few.

Riesling is the dominant varietal in the cellar where we a produce a juicy, quaffable style in LOVE to vineyard designated styles in the Nathaniel J. Moore series. We have recently introduced Zweigelt and Gruener Veltliner to our portfolio as these are cool climate varieties that held a particular interest to Tim from his time spent studying winemaking in Austria. It was through his experiences studying abroad and at UCD that Tim developed a unique vision for creating cool climate wines which his son learned from him and continues today. Working with his California-trained winemaker father has also molded Nathaniel into a winemaker who is driven to extract the best reds in the Finger Lakes.

We invite you to experience our award winning wines!

More Than Wine

Philosophy & Sustainability

We searched all over the Finger Lakes for the winery site which resonated with us the most in all ways—beauty, functionality, history, lush vineyards and rolling hills with an abundance of artistry all around. The Village of Naples is a historic spot loaded with many years of grape history, grape pie, wine, artists and music. We are passionate people who constantly work to capture the true characteristics of the vineyards where our wines are developed. It is in the land and the people who cultivate the flavors that the artistry of our wine begins.

Sustainability is one of the cornerstones to all of our business practices. We work with growers who implement Vine-Balance practices developed through Cornell Cooperative Extension for the grapes that we purchase. We compost all our grape pomace that is left over from harvest, which is utilized in the farm garden or vineyard. That is only the start to our sustainable practices at our winery & vineyard.

The people behind Inspire Moore Winery

Timothy Alan Moore
Timothy Alan Moore
Founder, Inspire Moore Winery & Vineyard

From the moment he went to Austria at the age of 20 to study winemaking, Tim fell in love with the industry. He came home from that experience determined to one day start his own winery. At 40, after many years working for other wineries, he accomplished his dream and opened the doors to Inspire Moore in 2007. For 12 years he lived his dream passionately to the fullest, expanding from just 2 wines in 2006 to over 20 different wines in 2019. He believed in the Finger Lakes and the wines that could be produced here, calling it the undiscovered Napa of the future. We are proud to be continuing his legacy and keeping his dream alive.

Nathaniel Joseph Moore
Nathaniel Joseph Moore
Winemaker, Inspire Moore Winery & Vineyard

At 21, Nathaniel started out as possibly the youngest winemaker in the U.S., definitely in the Finger Lakes. He worked for several years alongside his father, at the same time attending the Enology & Viticulture program at a local college. In 2019, the same year he graduated, his father passed away and passed the winery over to his son. Determined to continue his fathers legacy and only make it shine brighter, Nathaniel has proven himself an exemplary winemaker. He believes in extracting the fullest characteristics from each grape he works with and the wines which can be made in the cool climate growing region of the Finger Lakes.

Diane Moore
Diane Sparks Moore
Founder/Owner, Inspire Moore Winery & Vineyard

Diane founded Inspire Moore in 2007 along with her late husband, Timothy. They used to joke that Tim was in charge of production, and Diane was in charge of everything else. Not far from the truth, Diane oversees the business end of things, along with the HR and managing the tasting room. Originally from CA with a background in special education, Diane has fallen in love with upstate New York and the wine culture at large. She feels blessed to continue the legacy of Inspire Moore along with the help of her amazing children and employees, all of whom are like family.

Cordell Cody Bradley

Assistant Winemaker, Inspire Moore Winery & Vineyard

Cordell grew up in Naples and farming was always in his blood. Cordell and Nathaniel were best friends throughout grade school. After moving to North Carolina for high school, he came back to Naples and decided to attend college for the Viticulture & Enology program as well. Naturally, he became Nate’s right hand man and together they made it through their first solo harvest season beautifully. Cordell is an unequivocal asset at Inspire Moore and works with Nate to create award winning wines.

Nicholas Timothy Moore

Possessing his dads organization skills and attention to detail, Nick is the ultimate cellar hand. He works hard to keep the cellar clean and helps stay on top of the many day to day tasks involved in winemaking.
