ABOUT EMINENCE ROAD FARM WINERY: Eminence Road Farm Winery makes small lots of dry table wine in a barn on the western edge of the Catskills using vinifera grapes from sustainably managed Finger Lakes vineyards. Wine is fermented by naturally occurring yeasts and bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered with the only addition being a minimal amount of sulfite for stability. Andrew Scott, Jennifer Clark and Lester, from Hankins, are the proprietors. Eric Asimov, writing in the New York Times called the 2012 Riesling “an earthy, gravelly delight, gentle and balanced” and called the 2013 Gamay Noir “light-bodied, earthy, fruity and seriously delicious, a true vin de soif, as the French say, perfect for killing thirst.”

ABOUT KYMAR FARM WINERY & DISTILLERY: Follow the craft to the northern foothills of the Catskills in Upstate New York, where you’ll discover and savor the homegrown flavors of KyMar Farm Winery and Distillery. Born from the historic soils of Schoharie County, KyMar Farm Winery and Distillery never compromises. They take great pride in bringing local agricultural products from the field to the glass. Partnering with local growers, they hand-select only the best components for fermenting, distilling, aging and bottling on site.  All of the products' principal ingredients are either grown by them or by other New York farmers in their region. KyMar Farm Distillery is the first "licensed" distillery in Schoharie County since prohibition. Premium ingredients are direct-fire distilled for an authentic crafted spirt.  Their award winning Schoharie Mapple Jack is a unique blend of Apple Brandy with a touch of local Maple Syrup. Each batch is hand crafted from beginning to end. They use the solera process of barrel aging to ensure every mouthful is complex and full bodied. Their Schoharie Shine is distilled from Schoharie grown Sorghum which has often been used in the south by moonshiners when cheaper cane sugar was unavailable. This is their tribute to those southern moonshiners from the pre-civil war era. In addition to tasty spirits, they make great wine too!  KyMar Farm Winery uses only New York State grapes.  The Chardonnay is un-oaked and has light fruit on the beginning palate and finishes crisp and clean.
