About Ledge Rock Hill Winery & Vineyard
The original location lovingly known as the "Winery in the Woods" was located in Corinth, NY
We are a family-run operation with knowledgeable and dedicated staff, all sharing a true love and appreciation for the art of fine wine making. Ledge Rock Hill was established officially as a winery in 2010 by the Akrop family and operated out of the original "Winery in the Woods" location in Corinth, NY. In 2023, the tasting room was moved to our Lake George location and the Morgan family welcomed!
We specialize in limited vintage productions of hand-crafted wines made from premium grapes. We take great pride in producing wines that are custom crafted from the highest quality fruit available. The fruit is harvested from our own vineyard as well as a select few partner vineyards that have been able to consistently meet our high quality standards.
We use all natural ingredients and limit the use of sulfites as much as possible in order to insure release freshness and impart aging ability to our wines.
Our fermentation takes place in Macro-Bins or Stainless Steel tanks under controlled conditions. We hand-punch our reds during fermentation for optimum skin and juice contact and press as gently as possible. Transfers are done with the least amount of turbulence to preserve the freshness of our wines.
Our red wines are made from grapes we crush at our winery and are aged for a minimum of 10 months in American, Hungarian, and/or French oak barrels. Clarity and brilliance is achieved without filtration.
Our white wines are fermented at cool temperatures and aged in stainless steel to bring the true varietal character of the grape forward.
Our sweet wines are hand-crafted to accent the notes of the various grapes and fruit flavors that comprise them. All leading to a perfect balance of taste and delicious sweetness.
A wine making heritage and decades of wine making experience, coupled with a scientific background and true passion for the art of vinification have enabled us to take our wine making skills to a higher level of quality and sophistication that we hope you will enjoy.
We have won numerous awards in most notable contests such as The Finger Lakes International, Indy International, Florida International and The American Wine Society.
While wine making is truly our passion, customer satisfaction is our greatest reward. We strive to make the experience of tasting our wine as memorable as the wine itself. So please do come by and see for yourself!
