Hello Wine Lovers!
Danielle, here! It’s been a while since I have checked in with all of you, so I wanted to fill you in on all of the latest happenings, here, at Adirondack Winery. It has been an exciting year for us and you have all played such a huge part in that. We had our busiest summer and fall seasons to date; both on and off site!
If you stopped by the store this summer, you know that most days we had a packed house! We had a blast serving up some of your all-time favorites and some newbies. We debuted our Wine Maker Series, Jewel Collection and wine slushies this summer and they stole the show! Our new wines have been flying off the shelves and even brought home some new, gold medals for us, while our wine slushies gave you a new and refreshing way to enjoy your favorite wines and beat the heat!
If you didn’t catch up with us in the Tasting Room this year, you may have seen us out, on the road. Our Events Manager, Stephanie, hit the road and brought our wines to wine & food festivals across the state this summer and fall; She traveled down to the Hudson Valley, all the way up to Plattsburgh and Sackets Harbor. She saw some familiar faces, gained some new wine-loving fans and brought the atmosphere of the Tasting Room to you for a change!
We were happy to welcome Stephanie back home to Lake George, and while she probably needed a rest, she didn’t skip a beat! She kicked off the fall season with our Drink for a Cure Free Wine Tasting & Fundraising Event, which was a HUGE success. You all came out wearing and drinking pink in support of a great cause and we were able to raise over $1,800 for the Warren County Chapter of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. If you weren’t able to make it to our event, there are still ways to contribute. You can donate to Adirondack Winery’s team or even join our team and walk with us on October 27th at Queensbury High School.
Stephanie’s next endeavor will be Adirondack Winery’s Sip & Shop FREE Wine Tasting & Shopping Event. We plan to be your one-stop-shop for all of your holiday needs! We will be inviting some of our favorite vendors to join us so that you can sip & shop the day away! From stocking up on wine for your holiday parties to getting gifts for family, friends and co-workers; You won’t need to go anywhere else! RSVP to this event on Facebook for up-to-the-minute details and to see which vendors will be joining us!
Our Events Department was not the only one to see growth this year. We welcomed Heather Pauquette as our Wholesale Sales Representative this summer and she has made it her mission to have Adirondack Winery wines on liquor store shelves across New York State. Thanks to Heather, over 55 liquor stores are now carrying our wines! She will be traveling across New York and would love to hear where you would like to see our wines. Email Heather at email@example.com and let her know your favorite place to shop for wine and she may just stop by! Make sure you include a list of your favorite Adirondack Winery wines that you would like to see on their shelves.
It has been such a fun year so far and it’s not over yet! Be sure to follow us on social media & sign up for our Inner Circle so that you are the first to know about all of the latest winery news and events and what we have in-store for you!
One of my favorite things to do is to connect with all of you. I love hearing about your visits to the winery, memories you’ve made with us and what your new favorite wines are! Liking us on Facebook, following us on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest, not only lets you see what we’re doing, but lets us get to know all of you too! Tag us in your pictures from your visit with us or in pictures of you enjoying our wines with family and friends; Share your stories and ask us questions too!
There’s lots more wine-filled fun to come in the months ahead and we hope to see you all in the Tasting Room soon.
Until then…. Cheers!
