ADIRONDACK WINERY OPENED THE DOOR to its tasting room in Lake George in April 2008 as the region’s first micro-winery. While the winery remains the only one in Warren County, a lot has changed since then…many other wineries have come on the scene in the region since 2008, and Adirondack Winery is no longer “micro.” In 2011 they moved their winemaking operations to a facility in Queensbury that has room to grow, with a capacity to produce at least 10,000 cases annually.
Adirondack Winery is proud to provide its customers delicious, award-winning quality wines that are handcrafted locally. They offer an unparalleled selection of wines with something to satisfy every palate – from unique, fruitinfused wines to traditional white and red varietals, and more. (Their wine list is 35 long and growing!)
Adirondack Winery holds its Lake George tasting room as the core of its business. “It is our aim to take our customers on a journey through wine enjoyment with us, providing a wine tasting experience that is relaxing, fun and educational. We are proud that we foster many nonwine drinkers into wine learners, and then wine lovers, through this experience. We try to provide the best customer service while still treating all our visitors as good friends,” said CEO Mike Pardy.
One of Adirondack Winery’s core value statements is “Love Local.” The company shares the beauty of the Adirondacks with visitors from all over the country via local landscape photography featured on all its wine labels – people keep their empty bottles as souvenirs, always reminded of the great times they had in the region. Adirondack Winery supports countless local charitable organizations through wine tasting events and by providing wine for fundraisers, and items for silent auctions. One great example is its “Musical Medley” wine, a tropical fruit-infused Chardonnay that it created to raise money for the Lake George Community Band, with $5.00 from the sale of every bottle donated to the band.
Adirondack Winery strives to increase customers’ access to the brand – many people fall in love with their wine during a Lake George visit and don’t have an opportunity to return again for one or two years. The company currently has its wine in nearly 40 liquor stores throughout New York, as well as a handful of local restaurants, and is working to increase that. Additionally, the winery keeps its wine flowing through its online store.
Adirondack Winery is launching two new lines this summer.THE JEWEL COLLECTION
The Jewel Collection, which includes White Diamond (NY Diamond Grape); Pink Gem (NY Niagara Blush); and Red Ruby (a NY red blend). All delicate and sweet, our Jewel Collection wines are the perfect wines to enjoy during fun times with the precious jewels in your life – your friends!WINE MAKER SERIES
Our Wine Maker Series is meant to showcase the winemaker’s favorite New York wines, made for his palate. We are launching this line with off-dry versions of Baco Noir and Seyval Blanc that should be met with applause from many dry wine fans, and we will be adding other varietals in the coming years.
