Join us in celebrating the first wine of the 2018 harvest! Enjoy a glass of our Nouveau wine and hearty seasonal hors d’oeuvres by Chef Orlando of Veraisons, outdoors among the fall foliage!
Our annual Nouveau celebration began in 1977, the year we were established, as a way of celebrating our first harvest and we’ve continued the tradition every year since over our 40 year history.
Each year, our Nouveau wine undergoes a quick primary fermentation before being racked and put in a wooden cask. The resulting wine is intensely fresh and fruity. We invite you to join us for a taste of our 2018 Nouveau wine straight from the cask!

New York ranks third in wine production nation-wide and the wine industry contributes $4.8 billion annually to the state's economy.
DISCOVERNew York Wines
Welcome to New York Wine Country, home of five major wine regions covering nine officially recognized appellations blessed with fertile glacial soil and ideal grape-growing micro-climates.
The third-largest wine-producing region in America, New York has hundreds of wineries that are making international waves with their award-winning Rieslings, Cabernet Francs, Chardonnays, and other varieties. For fine wine lovers, New York has it all.
An American Viticultural Area (AVA) is a designated wine grape-growing region in the United States distinguishable by geographic features, with boundaries defined by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, United States Department of the Treasury.
The 6 major AVAs are shown below. There are also smaller AVAs in the Finger Lakes Region (Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake) and on Long Island (The Hamptons and North Fork of Long Island).
The New York wine industry is one of the most diverse in the entire wine world. We want to help our wineries, retailers, wholesalers, and potential customers inderstand a bit more about the riches we have to share.
The New York wine industry is a major engine of economic development, generating well over $13.8 billion in economic benefits to New York State annually. Wineries—which mean new investment, new jobs, new tourism, and new taxes—have spread from the traditional regions to places never envisioned as wine regions. While some statistics, like vineyard acreage, grow slowly, the number of wineries changes nearly every week. This section includes a photo gallery, statistical reports on the wine industry, a link to a special program in New York City, and several other helpful links and resources.
