Dan Heavens and
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 looking over 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), black currants, and quince. Glorie Farms provides fruit to local markets, CSAs, and farm stands, and fruit is also available to winery guests in season.
Introducing Quince Wine! Made by hand, exclusively from Glorie Farms quince fruit. It has a slight honey tint and lush floral aroma, a sweet body with flavors of passion fruit, chamomile, and pineapple, and lemongrass lingering in the finish.
Lightly filtered to maintain the delicate flavors of this old world fruit. Wonderful on its own, and an excellent pairing for spicy food.
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
2019 Estate Cabernet Franc
100% Glorie Farms Cabernet Franc. A full-bodied wine that begins with aromas of blackberries, raspberries, and dark plums with a touch of tobacco. Complex flavors develop further as sweet tobacco, pepper, a hint of smoke, and the distinct earthiness of Glorie Farms’ terroir combine to create a complex savory flavor. The terroir and dark berries continue to shine in the finish and remain lingering on the palate.
Only two barrels of this very special 2019 vintage were made, so get it while it lasts!

MEET THE WINEMAKER
“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.
It has been an honor to work with proprietors Doug Glorie and his wife Mary Ellen over the years, and as he passes the torch to a new family of owners I look forward to growing the business with them, and continuing their legacy of producing estate-grown Hudson Valley wines of the highest quality.”
