Miles Wine Cellars, Himrod, New York

Miles Wine Cellars is situated in a mansion in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York at the site of a former ferry crossing and has been owned by the Miles family since the early 1980s. The home was originally built in 1802 with its current owners in no doubt that they share their abode with an otherworldly presence. Doug Miles and Susan Hayes have reported hearing doors slam and footsteps in their kitchen and have had visions of a couple throughout the mansion. Miles’s father was said to be routinely awoken during the night by someone pressing on his back, and the comforter from his bed was frequently flung across the room. It is still quite often found crumpled at the base of the bedroom door. On the advice of clairvoyants, the couple avoid hosting séances or trying to document the ghosts, and instead put considerable effort into cleaning and maintaining the site’s cemetery. “If the ghost isn’t happy, nobody’s happy,” the winemaker has joked. In tribute to the spirits haunting their home the couple have released Ghost – a white wine made from a blend of Chardonnay and Cayuga.
