Yes. We are now offering wine tastings at our 3 locations. Reservations can be made in advance through our booking system, TOCK, and must be paid for in advance. Walk-ins are welcome but VERY limited and based on availability; we reserve the right to ask you to return at a later time / date if no space is available. Space is EXTREMELY limited, due to capacity restrictions, we can only accommodate parties of 2-4 people in Lake George and Bolton Landing, and 2-6 people in Queenbsury.
Wine Slushies and food are not CURRENTLY available at Queensbury.
Refunds will NOT be given for missed / canceled tastings (with the exception of weather-related cancelations at our Queensbury Winemaking Facility - a decision which is made by Adirondack Winery staff ONLY). Due to capacity restrictions, children are not allowed at any of our 3 locations at this time. You will be asked to wear a mask when you are not eating or drinking wine.

How are wine tastings different in light of COVID-19?
We have always taken great pride in the cleanliness of our Tasting Rooms, but we have added extra steps in light of health department recommendations. Our Tasting Rooms are also now "touchless" for the health and safety of both our guests and staff. Each tasting area will be cleaned after every wine tasting session. Hand sanitizer will be readily available. We have always given a souvenir glass with every wine tasting, but guests will now be required to take the glass with them after use. Visitors will be socially distanced at the Tasting Rooms. You will also be asked to wear a mask when you are not eating or tasting wine. Employees will also be wearing masks when serving and working in the Tasting Rooms.
Do you have a public restroom?
We do not have a public restroom at any of our 3 locations, and due to COVID-19 guidelines, we will not make any exceptions to this rule.
Do you accommodate large groups and bus tours?
If you are interested in booking a large group or bus trip in the future, please e-mail us at: ILoveWine@AdirondackWinery.com for more information. You can also click here for some more information on large group tours at our Tasting Room.
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 party package and group reservation policies for more.
Do you host private parties or business meetings?
We normally accommodate private parties in our Bolton Landing Tasting room but we are now planning for future parties only. Pricing is dependent on the size of your party and time/date of your event. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing information or click here to learn more about private parties at Bolton Landing!
Are kids allowed?
Due to social distancing and a extremely limited capacity at our facilities, we ask that you do not bring children to the Tasting Room at this time. We are constantly monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will families with children at the Tasting Rooms as soon as it is safe to do so. We have always taken great pride in being a family friendly attraction and we hope to return to that soon.

What is the best time to visit the winery?
Our Tasting Room is open all year, so no matter when you visit, you'll have a chance to stop by. Our busiest times tend to be between the hours of 12pm and 8pm, and weekends tend to be busier than weekdays. View our current store hours to plan your visit.
Where is your wine made?
We are a fully licensed New York State Winery. Our winemaking facility is 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 state. This method allows us to offer a much broader selection of quality wines (35+ varieties) than is typical of a traditional commercial vineyard winery.
Can I see your winemaking facility?
Unfortunately, tours of our winemaking facility are not available at this time. Check back soon for more info! Click on this link for location info>>
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. We do provide a limited amount of seating for wine tasters and we have a few extra seats 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. (There are currently no food options at our Queensbury Winemaking Facility. Sorry for any inconvenience.)
Can I bring my own food to the Queensbury location?
Adirondack Winery does not allow take out food or picnic food at our Queensbury location due to sanitization reasons. Our Queensbury location offers Wine Tastings and limited add-ons only.
