SITUATED IN CLERMONT, NY, in the historic Hudson Valley, we are a boutique winery with a relentless drive to produce local, quality wine. Even though we’re relatively new – the winery was born in 2006 – we have come a long way toward reaching our goal. Lenn Thompson, the Executive Editor of the New York Cork Report (NYCR) wrote this in January 2012:
“It’s hard not to consider Tousey Winery a major player in the resurgence of quality wine
in the Hudson Valley.”
We have a broad portfolio of wines, from the proprietary white blend, the Queen of Clermont to our Estate Bottled Riesling. In terms of reds we have a delightful Pinot Noir accompanying the Hudson Valley Red Wine of the Year (as nominated by the team at the New York Cork Report) – the 2010 Cabernet Franc.
When it comes to our vineyard, we couldn’t have wished for anything better. Overlooking the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains, the panorama is outstanding. In total we have 15 acres of Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir under production. And it would be churlish of us not to share it. Therefore, we hold private tastings and events at the vineyard throughout the year.
Our popular Tasting Room, conveniently nestled in the Blue Roof right on Route 9 in Germantown, is the perfect spot to come in, relax and enjoy our wines in a stylish, intimate, candle-lit space. We also sell organic honey, handmade soaps and even local artwork. We’re open throughout the year, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Behind the tasting room? A brand new winemaking facility now stands to ensure we meet our high standards of wine quality.
Trying to find us but can’t get to the tasting room? Catch us at farmer’s markets in Kingston and Rhinebeck, and at special events throughout the Hudson Valley. We’re also proud to be featured in a number of the area’s top restaurants and wine shops. Check out our Tousey Map at www.touseywiney.com for more details.
If you’re getting the picture that we’re a lot of different things in one, you’re right. We’re eclectic and passionate. . . but most of all, we’re delicious, top-quality wine you can have right here in the Hudson Valley!
This is your Queen. She will do her utmost to administer an aromatic nose; furnish you with a wonderfully light and refreshing mid-palate, with notes of lime and melon. And in her wisdom, provide a hint of sweetness to meet all tastes. Serve at royal banquets, state dinners and with all other foods…there is only one Queen.DRY RIESLING 2012 – ESTATE GROWN
Fresh pear and peach delight the nose on this complex estate bottled Riesling. On the palate, a refreshing minerality and great acidity deliver a mouthwatering finish.CABERNET FRANC 2012
Our Cabernet Franc displays dark fruit on the nose with great depth on the palate. Supple tannins rounded by a touch of oak provide a satisfying finish.THE RIOT
This proprietary red blend displays red berries on the nose and a pleasant structure on the palate. An approachable wine for all riotous occasions.REBELLION ROSÉ
Rebellion Rosé, made from Blaufränkisch grapes, has a heady nose of intense red fruit. Wonderfully dry, yet fruity on the palate, this wine delivers a deliciously long finish.CRÈME DE CASSIS
Grown on the estate along with honey from our very own bees, our Cassis is a blend of four varieties of black currants. Uniquely, the honey is used to balance the Cassis against the currant to give a bold and fragrant flavor.
