A visit to our wineries offers hospitable winery tasting rooms where you taste new cold-climate grape varietals and old-world classics and often meet the owners. From “Grandma Moses country” in Washington County to “horse racing country” in Saratoga County & the “Queen of American Lakes” in Warren County, we’re less than a half-day drive from New York City, Boston, and Montreal and only a short drive from Albany and Glens Falls, NY and western VT! From the beauty of the Adirondacks to the excitement of the Capital Region, we’re rich in historical and cultural attractions.
As one of our favorite times of the year is right around the corner, it’s time to think about how to give your friends and family a welcoming experience for Thanksgiving. We all know the staples, turkey and gravy, as well as other family recipes. What you may not have known is that picking the right wine based on your food will make a HUGE difference in the dining experience. We’re not simply talking about one wine for the whole day. In this blog we’re going to break down some wines to have with your dinner and dessert!

With the fall season now in full effect, many of you may be looking to get outside and explore. You might even be making some different meals using local harvest foods that pair perfectly with our wines. No matter the reason, Fall is one of the best times of year to get out to enjoy the Upper Hudson Valley scenery, relax with a glass of wine and bring home a bottle of local wine to serve with your autumn dishes.
Some of our favorite wines to drink this season are full-bodied whites and medium to full-bodied reds. Wines like these pair well with cooler weather and local harvest foods.
