STOUTRIDGE VINEYARD is a premium estate winery located in Marlboro, New York, 70 miles north of Manhattan. We are members of the Shawangunk Wine Trail, as well as the Meet Me In Marlborough Farm Trail.
The vineyards are half a mile from the beautiful Hudson River on the south-east facing slopes of a ridge of land on which grapevines and fruit trees have been continuously planted for 200 years. The Marlboro area has a rich history of fruit and wine production and during the 1800's was the principal supplier of fresh fruit for New York City.
Next to the winery is a picturesque and historic stone farmhouse known to elder locals as "The Homestead." Its ten foot high fieldstone foundation was built around 1855 and was dug out of the vineyard hillside. This house had a barn, which between 1902 and 1919 was the "Marono Winery." Its one dry-stacked stone foundation wall remains.
Our impressive new winery building directly on the site of the "1902" Marono Winery features a "gravity flow" style production with an emphasis on the use of traditional "hands-off " winemaking techniques which we believe are necessary to preserve the delicate fruit of our regional wines. Our spacious tasting room has an outdoor patio integrated with the old winery foundation wall.
Our solar photovoltaic array on the south roof of the production area is over 2,000 sq. ft of cell area and can produce 30 kW of electricity on a sunny day. Over the year we expect to be a net producer of electricity with the panels supplying more power than we use.
In our wine production area we use a series of electric hoists to lift entire tanks of wine in order to move the wine to different locations in the winery. This means that we don't use a pump which is much less energy efficient than the hoist.
Ninety percent of our wines come from very local vineyards. By using local grapes we reduce the amount of fuel used for transportation to our crush pad. One of our primary goals at Stoutridge is to capture local flavor. Indeed, many of our wines are farm-centric where we bottle a wine that is made 100% from the vines of a small Hudson Valley farm in an attempt to capture its authenticity.
A bright rosé wine in the classic European dry fruit-forward style. Matured in large casks for a year to bring out bouquet and surprising complexity.GRAVITAS
A blend of the locally grown red grapes in a deep rich luscious red wine. Complex and inviting. Delicious now but can be cellared for many years.SEYVAL BLANC
The signature white varietal of the Hudson Valley. Dry fresh subtle fruit and mineral flavored wine so successful in seafood and especially shellfish parings.CABERNET FRANC / NOIRET
This wine combines the spice characteristics of white and black pepper of the Noiret grape with the green bell pepper of Cabernet Franc. A classic interplay between spice and vegetable flavors makes an ideal wine for veal, beef, or game birds. 50% Cabernet Franc/50% Noiret. Unfiltered and unfined.
