Cab Franc Love!

Cabernet Franc is the signature grape of the Hudson Valley. We recently participated in National Cab Franc Day, December 4, 2016. We submitted samples of our 2014 Cabernet Franc to nine wine bloggers for this event and then participated in a #CabFrancDay Twitter chat with them. Seven bloggers subsequently wrote about their tasting experience. Our… Read More

2016

As so often happens in farming, the 2016 news was a mixture of good and bad. The bad news was we had no peaches to harvest due to a single night in February – Valentine’s Day, no less – when the temperature dropped to -13 degrees, and all of the peach buds were killed. Additionally,… Read More

GLORIE Reds Rock! Black Currant Wine

Black Currant plants were banned in New York State in the early 1900’s but the ban was lifted in 2003. The plan can host a disease called white pine blister rust which can be transferred to pine trees. With the ban lifted, we located cuttings and established a couple of rows at Glorie Farms.

GLORIE Reds Rock! Candy Ass Red

Many people do not like dry red wine. There is a large segment of our society that prefers something sweet. If you are one of these people, Candy Ass Red is for you. It features the great American Concord grape, Vitis labrusca. It is grape juice on steroids. We serve it chilled. Available at Glorie… Read More

GLORIE Reds Rock! Blackjack!

Blackjack! wine was introduced in December 2013 and its acceptance exceeded our expectations. We took one of our estate grown red wines and infused it with natural blackberry flavor, gave it some American oak exposure, and then polished it up with a little residual sweetness. You don’t need to be a gambler to enjoy this… Read More

GLORIE Reds Rock! Jibber Jabber

Jibber Jabber is a wine which features a rather unknown grape called Leon Millot. We released this wine a few years ago in a dry style but it didn’t take off. Too serious! We decided to lighten it up. This new version was developed during the 2012 political season. It is now a semi-dry style… Read More

GLORIE Reds Rock! Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is my favorite grape variety. It has a flavor profile unlike any other wine. The best bottles come from France and California AVA’s like Carneros, Sonoma and Russian River. Areas in Oregon are also getting good reviews. It can and is being grown in the northeast. I have a bottle of Red Newt… Read More

GLORIE Red Rock! Red Monkey

Red Monkey is a dry, yet mellow, red blend. It features Cabernet Sauvignon but is always blended with our estate reds. DeChaunac is a major component, followed by some Merlot and Chambourcin. Some years it may see a dash of our Cabernet Franc. The intent is to produce a Monkey that expresses the same flavor… Read More

GLORIE Reds Rock! Chambourcin

The Chambourcin grape was released in France in 1963 by Joannes Seyve. Many wineries in the eastern U.S. grow this grape. We are one of them! There are about 600 vines in our vineyard which yielded four ton in 2014. It is used in some of our red blends and in great years it is… Read More
