stoutridge vineyard

Stoutridge Vineyard, Marlboro

Open: Year-round; Fri.-Sun.
With underground wine cellars built into a hillside to take advantage of passive geothermal energy, Stoutridge is the epitome of “green” wineries. The facility runs on 100 percent solar power and adheres to a “slow wine” philosophy, avoiding the use of pumps, filters, and fining agents for minimal intervention and gravity-flow production. Many of the ingredients used in their wines and spirits are grown locally, and all are from New York State. Tours, outdoor patio, picnic area.
SIP THIS: Hudson Heritage White — an 85 percent Seyval Blanc blend. 845-236-7620; www.stoutridge.com
