Two Great Wines from Glorie Farm Winery!


Doug Glorie is a long time farmer and wine maker. He and MaryEllen Glorie run the Glorie Farm and the Glorie Farm Winery. Doug has been supplying grapes to the valley winemakers for years. But of late Doug and his talented group have been turning out some excellent wines, especially with the help of the talented wine maker Kristop Brown.

I recently ran into Doug at the Bounty of the Hudson Wine Festival just this last month. He was pitching a number of his wines, but my eyes were attracted to two new wines...a new rose' and a Marquette. I was anxious to taste them!


The first thing I tried recently was the Glorie Rose of Cabernet Franc 2017. This is a fine fresh rose made from 100% estate Cab Franc, and its filled with strawberries, and bright Bing cherries, rhubarb, lime, and cream. This is a delicious, high quality rose that is a standout just in the valley, but could easily compete on Long Island or the Finger Lakes as well. Truly great stuff. And BTW, I love, love the new label!


Glorie Farm Winery Marquette is a big dark deep wine with bramble berry and dark cherries, cedar and hints of dried blueberry.  Also hints of toast and vanilla. A pretty, and lovely, medium-bodied red with big flavor and soft tannins. Very, very drinkable.
