In 1982, the Baldwins purchased a farm which had been the Hardenburgh Estate since 1786. The estate included a stone home and 18,000 square feet of outbuildings situated on 37 acres of prime alluvial farmland. In the 39 years since, Baldwin Vineyards has garnered awards for their Chardonnay, Merlot, Riesling, Landot Noir, Port, and a dozen other wines, as well as pioneered New York’s entry into the premium fruit wine category.
New York International Wine Competition named Baldwin Vineyards “New York State Fruit Winery of the Year 2020 and 2021.” Baldwin’s Apple Wine was awarded a Double Gold Medal, and proclaimed “Best of Show” in the prestigious Finger Lakes International Wine Competition!
The Baldwins’ philosophy on fruit wines, which began a trend throughout the entire Northeast, was to vinify fruit wines as premium varietal wines. Instead of making the fruit wines dry, as was the tradition, the Baldwins finished many of their fruit wines so they tasted like the fruit they started from. Baldwin Vineyards was named “New York State Fruit Winery of the Year” at the New York International Wine Competition 2020.
Starting with their Strawberry Wine in 1985, they have since added Apple, Blueberry Merlot, Black Raspberry, and Spiced Apple wines which have also won many more awards over the years. The Black Raspberry Wine has won numerous gold medals in wine competitions, including a Gold Medal at the International Eastern Wine Competition. Baldwin’s Spiced Apple Wine garnered a Gold Medal and a 95/100 points in 2020. Their Strawberry Wine took a Gold at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition. Baldwin’s Apple Wine garnered a Double Gold Medal and Best Fruit Wine at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, and the “Best Fruit Wine in New York State” at the New York Food and Wine Classic.

MEET THE WINEMAKER
Pat and Jack Baldwin were living in New Jersey in 1981, enjoying wine as a hobby since their first visit to Europe in 1974 had started their love affair with wine. As Director of Les Amis du Vins’ premier new chapter, Pat had 100 members who met monthly to taste the world’s great wines. After visiting one of the dozen wineries in New York’s Hudson River region at the time, Pat remarked, “That would be a nice way to live.” Two years later, Baldwin Vineyards opened and the Baldwins sold out of their first year’s wine in a few months.
In December 2014 the torch was passed, and the second generation of Baldwin winemakers took the helm. Pat and Jack’s daughter, Wendy Baldwin-Landolina and her husband Alex Landolina have studied for many years under the tutelage of their parents. Now they are ready to share the same fine crafted wines that the Baldwin family has created for the last 35 years.
