At Stoutridge, there are many sustainable methods employed which result in a low environmental impact as well as a smaller carbon footprint. We are involved in a sustainability study with Cornell University to maximize their results in these areas.
We subscribe to the "Slow Wine" philosophy of winemaking using minimal intervention and gravity winemaking approach. This philosophy focuses on techniques which make the best wine as a priority, rather than techniques which bring a wine to the marketplace faster.
Speeding up the winemaking process is hard on the wine, and has a greater negative impact on the environment. Filtering is one example that rarely improves the quality of a wine, and it produces waste material that is difficult to dispose of in an eco-friendly manner.
At Stoutridge, by reducing or eliminating filtering, we have found that we also save on production costs and even reduce our carbon footprint. Our unfiltered wines require a longer time to settle and to clarify, though. Our white wines, whether barreled or not, are bottled only after 11 months of aging.
The second key component of Slow Winemaking is the gravity method of making wine without the use of pumps. The lack of turbulence in the transfer of wine from tank to tank is also a key to retaining the quality of flavor of the grapes in the finished wine.
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.
