Try Mountain View Winery - First In Washington County!


Washington County is pretty far up there, but it's still in the same geographical tregion of the Hudson River Valley. And Washington County is some beautiful countryside. Whether your visiting for winter sports, outdoor sports in the summer, or fall foliage, a visit to the Mountain View Winery should be a stop on your trip.


The Dallemagne family has been producing some of the world's finest wines for generations, starting in the area near Liege, Belgium in the mid 1400's. At the conclusion of World War II the family's facilities were too badly damaged to continue production, and so were sold.

Paul Dallemagne, the owner and winemaker, has resurrected the family tradition of fine wines and opened Mountain View Winery in July of 2005. The first year's total production was 95 cases, a small start. Second year production will be approximately 175 cases. Plans are to continue to expand production as the Winery's customer base expands.

Mountain View Winery is located at the western edge of the Cambridge Valley 5 miles north of Cambridge, New York. The view from the winery is a sweeping vista of the Green Mountains of Vermont on the other side of the valley. Included in this view is Mount Equinox of Vermont.


Mountain View Winery is the first licensed New York State Farm Winery in Washington County, New York. We offer traditional grape wines, as well as fruit wines.

The winemaker is active duty Air Force and might be deployed at any given time, so Winery hours are by appointment only for tours and tastings.

The Winery is closed each year between October and February.
