Rich and Tara Nimmo had always dreamed of turning their favorite basement hobby into a full fledged business endeavor. It was their tradition each year to unveil each new batch of homemade wine at their annual New Years Eve celebration. As interest in their handcrafted products began to grow, Rich and Tara assured their loyal following that a winery would one day open… when the time was right.
After a diagnosis of a life threatening illness, Rich realized that the right time was right now. Rich and Tara sought out a rundown farm stand on the outskirts of Saratoga Springs and began renovating the space inch by inch. Rich was declared cancer free a year to the day that the doors of The Saratoga Winery opened. The business has continued to flourish under the direction and hard work of both Rich and Tara and has blossomed into a favorite pit stop for locals and tourists alike.
Sourced from top vineyards in New York’s Finger Lakes region, Saratoga Winery produces affordable yet high quality wines adorned with eye catching labels featuring local artwork and photographs, mostly themed around the race track and Saratoga Springs. The tasting bar features beautiful woodwork with a warm, Adirondack feel complimented by local products, local musicians and the spirit of Rich and Tara.
You can now enjoy both Saratoga White & Saratoga Red as the newest additions to our Local Wines selection at Divine Wines.
Lightly sweet and perfectly smooth, Saratoga White features 100% Cayuga grape and offers a delicate ripe red raspberry flavor with a lingering finish. The perfect Summer sipping wine!
A medium bodied, full flavored blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Lemberger grapes. Black fruits compliment tones of pomegranate and hints of black pepper making this the perfect food-friendly wine for pairing with a variety of dishes!
