Adirondack Winery’s 2nd Anniversary is Met with 3 Awards for its Wines

Posted on Updated on


LAKE GEORGE, NY (April 5, 2010):  Not only is Adirondack Winery celebrating its second Anniversary this month, but it is also pleased to announce that three of its wines won awards at the recently-held 2010 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.


Adirondack Winery’s Cabernet Franc took a Silver Medal at the Competition, while its Rocky Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc took home Bronze Medals.


“We couldn’t be happier that the milestone of completing our second successful year in business has also been met with news of three of our wines earning medals. To date, 10 of our wines have won medals, even though we have entered only a handful of competitions. Fortunately, our wine drinkers are showing that they agree with the judges, as we are enjoying a seemingly ever-expanding base of loyal customers,” said Adirondack Winery President, Sasha Pardy.


Adirondack Winery wine-maker and CEO, Michael Pardy, crafted Adirondack Winery’s silver-medal winning Cabernet Franc starting from grape must sourced from a vineyard in the Lodi Region of California. His techniques produced a medium-bodied, plum-colored, smooth red wine offering a peppery perfume and fresh raspberry flavor, as well as understated tones of violets and tobacco.

In fact, all of Adirondack Winery’s wine labels feature photography of landscapes, landmarks and events of the local Adirondacks region.


Adirondack Winery’s bronze-medal winning Sauvignon Blanc is a well-balanced, full-bodied dry white wine that is crisp and luscious, carrying understated grapefruit and herbaceous tones. The Sauvignon Blanc label features a photograph of the view of Lake George from Shepard Park in autumn.


Adirondack Winery’s bronze-medal winning Rocky Shiraz is a soft and supple red wine with a ripe black plum character that offers a subtle but persistent spice with just a hint of cocoa. The Rocky Shiraz label features a photograph of the colorful bedrocks at the Pottersville Bridges & Caves in Pottersville, NY.
