Our approach to winemaking.
We’ve constructed Stoutridge Vineyard on the side of a majestic hill over looking beautiful Hudson Valley countryside. However breathtaking vistas and fertile soil was not the entire reason we selected our location. The land also allowed for us to construct a Gravity Flow Winery. By building our facility on multiple levels, we can use the wonders of gravity to move our product. Gravity offers a much more gentle flow of wine through production. Our gravity process begins with all of our harvested grapes being dropped onto a sorting table at our crush pad.Learn more
Our Barrel room houses large barrels that can hold up to 700 gallons and smaller barrels that can hold 375 gallons. Our barrels are made from Hungarian oak which is quite similar to French oak but at a significantly lower cost. We estimate our barrels lasting over 100 years. For this reason, they are considered sustainable because you can re-grow the oak forest before you need to harvest wood to replace the barrel. Our goal at Stoutridge is to make wines that carry the flavor of the grape and vineyard. Our Hungarian oak barrels are perfect because they do not impart any oak flavor to the wines.
