For over twenty years, Lamoreaux Landing has set the standard for sustainable viticulture and cool-climate winemaking. Each of their 20 vineyard blocks has been expertly chosen to accentuate the strengths of both the vines and the site. Long sunny days and cool nights further contribute to the intense aromatics and crisp acidity found in the wines. The estate grown fruit is the key to consistency in the wine cellar. By immediately delivering grapes to the winery at the peak of ripeness, and crushing them within minutes of harvest, allows for the perfect preservation of each varietal with minimum intervention.
Lamoreaux Landing believes in sound environmental management practices, which minimize the use of synthetic fungicides, pesticides, fertilizers, fuel, energy and waste. These “green” decisions not only protect the health of their employees, consumers, and neighbors, but also insure their economic viability and continued ability to grow and deliver the best possible wine products for generations to come.
Additionally, they have a continued effort to reduce their carbon footprint and improve the biodynamic health of the vineyards, and have recently completed VineBalance, New York State’s Sustainable Viticulture program. This program is endorsed by the Agricultural Environmental Management Program of the New York State Soil and Water Conservation Committee, as well as by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets. ALamoreaux Landing continues to work closely with Sustainable Viticulture experts from Cornell University to provide ongoing improvement and continuous monitoring of their environmental impact.
Owners Mark Wagner and Josh Wig rely on over 75 years of combined sustainable farming and viticultural experience.
