LAKE GEORGE, NY (July 14, 2009): Adirondack Winery, Warren County’s first winery, is proud to announce that it’s Pinot Noir won a Silver Medal at the International Eastern Wine Competition, which was held recently in Watkins Glen, NY. Adirondack Winery is particularly proud of this award, as a Silver Medal was the highest level award any Pinot Noir received at the competition.
Adirondack Winery opened its doors on April 17, 2008 as the region’s first micro-winery. Winemaker and co-owner, Michael Pardy, sources grape must from various farm vineyards to create the more than 30 wine varietals on Adirondack Winery’s wine list.
Adirondack Winery’s award-winning Pinot Noir is made from grape must sourced from the Lodi, California area. Mr. Pardy oaks this red wine and ages in stainless steel drums; the result is a medium bodied red wine that boasts a flavor reminiscent of buttered toast, as well as notes of black cherries and raspberries.
The wine label on Adirondack Winery’s Pinot Noir features a photograph of Rockwell Falls, a beautiful natural Adirondack landmark set right between Lake Luzerne and Hadley. All of Adirondack Winery’s wine labels feature photographs of landscapes and landmarks in the local region.
The owners, Michael & Sasha Pardy are available for interviews upon request by calling 518-668-WINE or emailing at ILoveWine@AdirondackWinery.com.
