Glorie Farm Winery is a small, boutique style winery residing in a 1913 barn on a farm high on Mt. Zion Mountain. With panoramic views overlooking the Hudson Valley, there is breathtaking beauty across the entire property. There are more than a dozen varieties of grapes grown on the vineyard, and almost all Glorie wine is made from estate grapes.

The winery is located in the middle of a working farm that focuses on growing high-quality Hudson Valley fruit. The 52-acre property at Glorie Farms has over twenty acres of fruit—apples, peaches, pears, grapes (both table and wine), currants, and quince. Glorie Farms provides fruit to local markets, CSAs, and farm stands, and fruit is also available to winery guests in season.

Owners Dan and Jacqui Heavens are focused on producing delicious, high-quality fruit and wines; and in experimenting and bringing new and different wines and ciders to you.

Guests can expect an extensive variety of wines crafted almost entirely from estate grapes, as well as ice cider, hard cider, and perry. With over 20 wines to choose from, there is a wine for every palate and preference—from dry estate wines (red and white) to creative sweet and fruit wines.

Live acoustic music, food vendors, intimate guided tours, and unique events are all a part of the experience. There are plenty of picnic tables spread throughout the expansive property; no reservations are needed for outdoor seating, and there are no time limits. Feel free to bring a picnic, your family, your dog, and spend the day having a drink with the owners and taking in the gorgeous views.

Savor This

The terroir at Glorie Farms gives their dry whites a unique flinty finish. The expression of the soil was particularly emphasized in 2020 by an early harvest, so the dry whites from this vintage are exceptionally clean and crisp.

The unoaked Chardonnay is a standout this year, with notes of pineapple, passion fruit, wildflower honey, and blood orange.

 

New owners Dan and Jacqui Heavens are thrilled and humbled to be a part of the Hudson Valley wine community and for the opportunity to chase this long-held dream. They plan to continue to build on the legacy that founders Doug and MaryEllen Glorie created, while adding a few new things of their own.

Guests can expect an extensive variety of wines crafted almost entirely from estate grapes, as well as gin distilled with farm-foraged botanicals, and hard cider. With over 20 wines to choose from, there is a wine for every palate and preference—from dry estate wines (red and white) to creative sweet wines for those with sweeter palates.

Live acoustic music, food vendors, intimate guided tours, and private tastings will also be part of the experience. Feel free to bring a picnic blanket, your family, your dog, and spend the day taking in the gorgeous views.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Heavens Ice Cider 2020

Made in the same style as an ice wine, Heavens Ice Cider is made with 100% Glorie Farm apples that were frozen to concentrate their natural sugars.

Ice ciders are naturally sweeter and higher in alcohol than regular hard ciders; this one has a very full body and a crisp tang to the finish. This is the first ice cider made at Glorie Farm, and was transferred by hand, five gallons at a time, on a 19-degree day in January. It was well worth the effort!

Kristop Brown

“I have been working at Glorie Farm Winery since 2012 and during that time I have grown to appreciate the terroir of the Marlboro mountains, and have gained respect for the community of winemakers and farmers that strive to make expressive and unique wines from the fruit here.”

“I now understand that wine is made in the vineyard, and as winemaker it is my job to guide the fruit on its journey from grape to wine.”
