Sampling for quality and proper style is not only scientific but also delicious!
Grape pressings are composted after being separated from their juice.
Both white and red wine nearing the end of its fermentation is a critical time and checked often.

HOW IT'S MADE
Stoutridge Vineyards is a premium estate winery located in Marlboro, New York, 70 miles north of Manhattan, in the Hudson Valley AVA. We are members of the Shawangunk Wine Trail as well as the Meet Me In Marlborough Farm Trail. Built upon the historical foundations of vineyards planted in the late 1700's, a winery established in 1902 which was closed by prohibition, and a bootleg era distillery which operated until 1956. We began replanting the vineyards in 2001, opened the winery in 2006 and our distillery in 2009.
