Adirondack Winery’s Exciting New Labels & Expansion
Adirondack Winery’s 13th anniversary is this month, and in honor of the milestone they’ve unveiled a few new labels, and there’s more to come later in the year. Check out their black cherry-infused Pinot Noir Wild Red, and the concord grape blend Red Ruby.
Adirondack Winery owner Sasha Pardy said in a statement that while the labels feature the iconic photos of Lake George their fans have come to know and love, they’re “amplified by a more prominent placement of the wine flavor and a striking standout foil design.”
In addition, the winery is gearing up for construction on a new 11,000-square-foot building at their Queensbury location. This expansion is expected to triple their wine production over the next few years.
