Merlot 2016 - Limited Edition Library Wine
This wine is sold at our Queensbury Production Facility, and online, as well as for pickups at our Lake George & Bolton Landing Tasting Rooms.
What is a Library Wine?
In 2014, we began setting aside four cases of our best dry varietal wines, each of that particular vintage year. Stored in the proper conditions (in a cool, dark place, arranged on their side), just for you, we have been saving four cases of each ever since!
How did we decide which wines to put in the Library?
There's a different and special reason for choosing a library wine – whether we had only created a limited supply or the wine sold out too quickly, it was immensely popular or it won a particularly notable award in its vintage year. Each wine is chosen for a unique reason.
