Adair Vineyards is located in the Historic Hudson Valley made famous by explorers, soldiers, and artists. Little known is the fact that wine growing was once a thriving industry along these Hudson River shores. The French Huguenots planted grapes in the Hudson Highlands in the 17th century and in 1870 a hundred tons of grapes a day sailed from Marlboro down to New York City. While wine making is not new to the area, it did fade in importance during Prohibition and did not, until recently, stage a dramatic comeback.
The vineyard is located next to the winery. Visitors can enjoy wandering around the fields and through the vineyards pretending they are Asher Durand looking for an artistic inspiration.
In order to maintain the highest quality, our wines are created firstly with estate-grown grapes and then supplemented with additional varieties grown at a local farm which we have a close working relationship.
Our 10 acres of vines are composed of two white varieties: Seyval Blanc and Vignoles, two red varieties: Foch and Millot. We will continue to experiment with other varieties in order to create exciting new wines.
We currently produce more than 20,000 bottles and look forward to increasing our production.
In the wine cellar you will see how we make the wine, care for it to perfection and bottle it for our customer. Our wines range from dry to slightly sweet. Come to Adair Vineyards. Combine wine tasting at our winery with several of the other Hudson Valley wineries. Or stop off to see us on the way to some of the many historic and scenic sights. We know you will have a good time.
