You don’t need a vineyard to grow a winery.

That’s the news from the Adirondack Winery & Tasting Room, a new business located on Lake George, the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce announced today.

Located in Lake George Village, the winery will hold a grand opening May 15 at 5 p.m. at 285 Canada St., directly across from Shepard Park. It has been open since mid-April.

“We are a micro-winery and hand-craft all our wines on-premises,” said Winery CEO, co-owner and wine-maker Michael Pardy. “We do not have our own vineyard and instead tap a couple of suppliers that source grape product for us from various farm vineyards, primarily located in California.” 

Being a micro-winery allows the company to offer a broad selection of wines. Where a typical vineyard winery offers three to five wines, this winery plans to offer about 25 wine varieties, he said. A typical batch will range from 120 to 240 bottles. Bottle prices range from $12 to $22.

Sasha Pardy, Adirondack Winery president and co-owner, said the idea was to bring the wine to where the people were, not the other way around.

The company’s selections are labeled with photographs featuring scenery and landmarks of the Warren-Washington-Saratoga region.
