What They Are about
The Baldwin's philosophy on fruit wines, which began a trend throughout the Northeast, was to vinify fruit wines as premium varietal wines, rather than the old traditional method of adding water and other less expensive fruit juices to bring down the cost. Instead of making the fruit wines dry, as was the tradition, the Baldwins finished their fruit wines so they tasted like the fruit they started from. Baldwin Vineyards has spent the last 33 years garnering awards for our Chardonnay, Merlot, Riesling, Brut Champagne, Port and a dozen other wines, but pioneered New York's entry into the premium fruit wine category. Most recently, Baldwin Vineyards garnered three gold medals for all three berry wines: Double Gold for their Strawberry wine; a Gold for their Raspberry Wine and Trilogy (red raspberry) at the FInger Lakes International Wine Competition, making them the best fruit wines in the competition of more than 3,500 entrants. Their Spiced Apple is Best Fruit Wine in the Hudson Valley. Their Strawberry Wine garnered a Gold Medal and best fruit wine in the Hudson Valley Wine Competition.
