Adirondack Winery Named New York Riesling Winery of the Year!

Adirondack Winery is pleased to announce that judges at the 2015 New York International Wine Competition awarded the Queensbury-NY based winery with the title of “New York Riesling Winery of the Year”. The recognition was earned based on Judges’ resounding opinion of Adirondack Winery’s 2013 Vintage of Semi-Dry Riesling -- the white wine was awarded a Gold Medal.

Adirondack Winery Semi Dry Riesling - GOLD  - New York Intl Wine Competition“We could not be more pleased with this result our Semi-Dry Riesling earned at this competition,” said Sasha Pardy, President and Co-Owner of Adirondack Winery. “Our customers clearly agree with the judges. We released the wine for sale in our Lake George tasting room and online in Late November 2015 and we are already nearly sold out of it! That’s pretty remarkable, considering November through May is our ‘slow season’ and the wine has only been available in our Tasting Room and website, not in liquor stores,” said Pardy. She noted they had produced about 125 cases of the 2013 Vintage.

The New York International Wine Competition is the first major international wine competition with TRADE ONLY judges, comprised of buyers from the top retail stores, sommeliers, restaurant owners, hotel beverage directors, distributors and importers. The 2015 Wine Competition (the 5th Annual event) was held May 17th-18th at the 3 West Club in New York City. Adirondack Winery shipped its Semi-Dry Riesling to the event for the judges to evaluate – it was judged alongside close to 1,000 submissions from wineries in the US and 30 Countries around the world.

This competition is unique in that the judges are instructed ONLY to grant a wine an award if they feel they would import, distribute, buy, or sell the wine at their own place of business. Also unique to the wine competition-trade, only 30% of submissions in 2015 received any medal at all. “This process makes us particularly proud that our Semi-Dry Riesling earned us a GOLD Medal and the New York Riesling Winery of the Year Title,” said Pardy.

Adirondack Winery’s Semi-Dry Riesling was crafted by Wine Maker and CEO, Michael Pardy. “An excellent Upstate New York Vineyard grew the grapes we used to make our Semi-Dry Riesling. After several tests of the juice, I decided this vintage, our inaugural New York Riesling, would be best to debut in a Semi-Dry format.  The Residual Sugar is about 1.5%, balanced nicely with acidity and 12% Alcohol by Volume, which creates just a touch of sweetness to the wine. I am thrilled that we earned the New York Riesling Winery of the Year title for this wine, as we have been honing our craft for several years now and I feel like, and I think our customers agree, that our wines just keep improving. That’s what I strive for,” said Pardy.

Adirondack Winery Riesling TrioAdirondack Winery has a limited amount of cases of its Semi-Dry Riesling 2013 Vintage still available for sale; however, the company is ready with a 2014 Vintage of Semi-Dry Riesling to go out on the market right behind it.

Additionally, the winery just released a Semi-Sweet Riesling and will soon be releasing a Dry Riesling – the grapes for these wines were also harvested in the Lake Ontario region. The three wines make a palate-pleasing trio, with all three labels featuring common birds of the Adirondacks.

The Inaugural Adirondack Wine and Food Festival was a Success!

We are excited to report that the Inaugural Adirondack Wine and Food Festival was a great success! People came from near and far, rain AND shine, all weekend long, with an impressive 2,500+ attendees over the course of the weekend. Had the weather forecast been better, we truly believe that we would have seen upwards of 4,000 attendees.

People lined up at the gates of Charles R. Wood Festival Commons to be welcomed into the very first Wine and Food Festival in Lake George. They were greeted with welcome bags and commemorative wine glasses and sent on their way to sample from 35+ wineries, breweries, distilleries and gourmet food vendors. The Farmers' Market-style event allowed attendees to "try before they buy," meaning they could sample unlimited wine, beer, spirits & food in order to find and purchase their favorite products. It was overwhelming and humbling to see how many people support small, local family businesses, much like our own.

While many of the vendors were local to the Adirondack and Capital region, several of them even made their way from the Finger Lakes and Thousand Islands!

In addition to the vendors, SUNY Adirondack set up a Culinary Tent where Chef Matt Bolton and his students were performing cooking demonstrations to a full audience every hour and selling samples of their food to raise money for the SUNY Adirondack Foundation. As the official beneficiary of the Adirondack Wine and Food Festival, a portion of all ticket sales benefitted the Foundation as well. We could not have been happier with this partnership as the students not only added a unique element to the Festival, but supported us in the form of tireless volunteers.

Not only did we support local, but local supported us. As the presenting sponsor, we, at Adirondack Winery were so grateful for the outpouring of support from local businesses in the form of Sponsorships and promotion. With support from the Town and Village of Lake George, Warren County, SUNY Adirondack, Black Dog Design, Mannix Marketing and 20+ partners and sponsors, we were able to put on a successful, first-year event that we hope to grow into a Lake George staple.

As we begin to plan for 2016, we look forward to making improvements and adding to what was already such a well-received event. We plan to include additional food vendors in the form of both food trucks and gourmet food vendors and believe that the festival can even support a few more wineries and breweries. We also look forward to the completion of the Charles R. Wood Festival Commons so that the ambiance of the space matches the beauty of the backdrop of Lake George!

Many great things are to come and the Adirondack Wine and Food Festival will only get bigger and better from here. See you all in 2016!

Cheers!

Heard it through the Grapevine: Vincent is out of Hibernation

I am just waking up from a pretty serious nap and it looks like I missed a lot! Adirondack Winery looks much different than I left it in the Fall, but I have to say I'm liking this new look! The Tasting Room has been brightened up with a fresh coat of paint and new floors, the wine labels have been updated and it looks like they even got a new logo! It appears that they had a pretty good-lookin' grapevine for their logo model... those vines look awfully familiar! 

From the looks of it, I'm not the only one coming out of hibernation - the streets of Lake George are starting to buzz again, the leaves are returning to the trees and the lake is as beautiful as ever... they don't call her the "Queen" for nothing!

It was a long, cold winter in the Adirondacks, and it seems like everyone is just as excited as I am to bask in the warm sun, however, it feels like we jumped right into summer with this beautiful 80+ degree weather we've been having lately. While the sunshine is long overdue, and I'm loving every minute of it, if you find yourself needing to beat the heat, I've been hearing the glorious sounds of Wine Slushie machines churning on the weekends again! Our friends at Siena College stopped by last week and officially helped us kick off Wine Slushie Season! I'm on a strict water diet (getting ready for beach season), so I'll just have to live vine-cariously through you!

It may feel like summer, but I've been doing a little window reading out here and it seems like summer will officially kick-off in Lake George with the very first Adirondack Wine & Food Festival on June 27th & 28th... this sounds right up my vineyard! According to this poster, we better get ready to take our taste buds on an incredible journey... It sounds like a delicious journey, if you ask me! Wine, beer, spirits, specialty food vendors and food trucks, all with the beauty of Lake George as your backdrop... It doesn't get much better than that.

A portion of the ticket sales to the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival will benefit the SUNY Adirondack Foundation and help support the next generation of wine and food enthusiasts in our area. The Town and Village of Lake George, as well as Warren County and other local sponsors have joined Presenting Sponsor, Adirondack Winery in pioneering the first event of its kind in Lake George and what looks to be an annual event showcasing all the best the region has to offer.

Like I said before, it looks like I missed a lot while I was hibernating, but at least the best is yet to come! Memorial Day is next weekend and the Tasting Room always extends their hours for all of you celebrating the holiday weekend with family and friends. We will also be raising our glasses to Dads on Father's Day Weekend with our Annual Father's Day Wine Tasting Event.

Be sure to keep checking Adirondack Winery's website for the latest Tasting Room hours, news and events, as well as everything you need to plan your summer visit to Lake George and our Tasting Room... you can even pre-purchase your Tasting Sessions on their website now (boy, I've got a lot of catching up to do!).

I'll be back soon to give you the latest scoop on what's happening at Adirondack Winery.. Until then... You heard it through the grapevine!

Cheers,

Vincent the Vine

Just a Taste of What's to Come at our 7th Anniversary Celebration!

By now you have probably heard that we are gearing up for our 7th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, April 11th. You may have also heard that it is going to be bigger and better than ever before.

How do we know this? The proof is in the pudding, my friends... Ok, there's no pudding, but there is Black Forest Cake with Wild Red Cherry Wine Sauce! There is also a wine-infused menu like you have never seen (or tasted) before.

Our 7th Anniversary is being held on Saturday, April 11th at the Ramada in Queensbury and will be catered by the award-winning, Rainer's Gourmet Inspirations. With 25 years of experience, Rainer and Karen Mehalik have made their mark in the catering industry, specializing in making events extraordinary, and our event is no exception.

Combining our award-winning wines with Rainer's award-winning food has resulted in a one-of-a-kind menu that truly spotlights our wines & makes them the stars of the evening. Not only will our wine be available for tastings and by the glass, it will be available in the food!

There will be four wine-infused food stations, some of them Chef Attended, with display cooking! Each station will include several menu selections, each incorporating a different Adirondack Winery wine; even the salad station will incorporate our wines!

Speaking of the salad, first up is the Salad Shooter Station. You won't find your every day Garden and Caesar Salads at our party; Rainer's has come up with a unique spin on this station that includes an assortment of chopped salad shooters, Mellow Blush infused melon shooters and a Seyval Blanc Vinaigrette Dressing that is out of this world!

Next up, are the Entree Sample Stations. Enjoy a  little Country Comfort when you stop by this station and watch as the Chef cooks up some Grilled Vegetables infused with Pinot Grigio paired with Country-Style Mashed Potatoes, Sirloin Tips in Fireside Reserve Port Wine Sauce and more.

There will also be penne pasta dishes cooked to order along with a Fireworks Merlot Bolognese Sauce, Shrimp & Grape Tomato Sauté in Gewürztramier and Chicken Scaloppini with Dry Riesling.

Last, but certainly not least is the Dessert Shooter Station, and for the love of wine and chocolate, this station is a dream come true! With selections like Apple Crisp with Orchard Blossom Wine Sauce, Java Bars with Calm After the Storm Port Wine Sabayon and Soaring Strawberry Wine & Grape Shooters, you'll want to make sure you leave room for dessert.. and probably more than just one!

I'm sure you don't need much more convincing to attend our 7th Anniversary Celebration after this mouth-watering menu teaser, but I assure you there are plenty more reasons why you won't want to miss this event. The night will be filled with fun games, over $750 in raffle prizes, dancing to DJ entertainment, and of course all of your favorite Adirondack Winery wines! You can even make a weekend out of it with event-exclusive hotel packages offered by the Ramada with upgrades that include a welcome reception with live entertainment and Sunday brunch; hotel packages start at just $65.50!

Tickets are selling quickly with 1/3 of them already gone! Click here to purchase your tickets today & be a part of our most anticipated event of the year!

Cheers!
