Or you can submit a Tasting Session reservation request for your group of 8+ by e-mailing your request to ILoveWine@AdirondackWinery.com or calling 518-668-9463 and a Tasting Room Manager will respond to your inquiry or return your call as soon as possible. Please note we do ask that reservations are made 2 weeks prior to your visit.

Yes. Reservations are required for groups of 8+ only. We can now host a maximum of 45 guests at the Tasting Room, depending on the season and our reservation schedule. E-mail us at: ILoveWine@AdirondackWinery.com for more information.
Do you host Bachelorette, Birthday or other Special Occasion parties?
Yes. We offer a special occasion party package (see details here), popular with bachelorette and birthday party groups. Space is reserved on one side of our tasting bar for your event. Please note, a party package is not a private party, as we do not have a private room at our Tasting Room. Please view our part package and group reservation policies for more.
Do you host private parties or business meetings?
During the shoulder seasons (after Columbus Day to before Memorial Day), we will consider private party requests for groups of 20 - 45 people. Pricing would vary on a case by case basis depending on the size of your party and time of your event. Please e-mail us to discuss
Are kids allowed?
Children are welcome in the Tasting Room with adult supervision. A wine tasting typically takes anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on how quickly you taste. Our Lake George Tasting Room has a "Children's Corner" that includes a table and chairs, and a chalkboard to doodle on. We offer non-alcoholic drinks and chocolates, as well as cheese plates to enjoy (free lollipops when available!). Guest WiFi Access is also available.
Where is your wine made?
We are a fully-licensed New York State Winery. Our wine-making facility is located in Queensbury, NY. At this facility you will find wine-making equipment commonly seen in large commercial wineries; but on a smaller scale.
Do you have a vineyard?
Adirondack Winery does not have its own vineyard. Our award-winning wines are born from the finest quality grapes sourced from farm vineyards across New York and some other regions. This method allows us to offer a much broader selection of quality wines (35+ varieties) than is typical of a traditional commercial vineyard winery.
Are ALL of your Wines sold at your Tasting Rooms?
From our Lake George and Bolton Landing Tasting Rooms, we ONLY taste and sell our wines made from New York grapes. Click on this link for location and wine list info>>
We also make a selection of non-vintage wines that are available for purchase from our Queensbury Headquarters location, on our website, and through liquor stores; but these wines are NOT available for tasting or sales from our Lake George or Bolton Landing Tasting Rooms.

Can I see your wine-making facility?

Is the Tasting Room like a Wine Bar?
Adirondack Winery Tasting Room is not a wine bar. Our NYS Liquor License does not allow for pouring wine by the glass. Because of our limited Tasting Room space, the volume of customers we get, and the length of our Tasting experience, we also do not provide seating - although we do have a few stools on hand for the injured or handicapped.
Does Adirondack Winery serve food at the Tasting Room?
Adirondack Winery's Tasting Room is not a sit-down restaurant. We do offer some great complements to the wine tasting, on a small scale, that include cheese plates, wine tasting crackers, chocolates, and occasionally other goodies.
