This was my first time visiting a vineyard or doing a wine tour/tasting. The host we had was the son who also runs the vineyard and had so much knowledge. It was a beautiful day and the vineyard overlooks the mountains which was beautiful. He showed us every step of the process and was able to answer any questions. Not... More

Our group of five friends visited Altamont Vineyard on a snowy Saturday afternoon in December. We arrived at 4:00pm, an hour before closing, and had the tasting room to ourselves. We were served by a friendly and knowledgable young lady who seemed genuinely happy to have our company. For $5 we did 5 tastings with very generous pours. We tried... More

Went to Altamont for a Groupon Deal. Such an unexpected experience. Upscale, but not snotty. Fun and upbeat, yet relaxing. Great wines...knowledgeable, friendly, staff. Wonderful fruits and homemade chocolate! We will be back!

Since we were driving from Boston to Saratoga Springs NY, I looked for interesting places to visit along the way. I came upon the Altamont Winery, and although it felt as if we were in the middle of nowhere, the winery turned out to be a great little place. To our surprise, the café tables were filled with sophisticated young... More

Spend an afternoon at this lovely little venue in the hills outside the Village of Altamont (Town of Guilderland, New York). You may stroll through the vineyards, and return to the little store and tasting room. For just five dollars, you will taste six varieties, and have the opportunity to buy your favorites by the bottle. Other wine-related gift items... More

The two owners were a lot of fun to chat with. So glad we decided to check this place out. You get to keep the glass of the wine tasting. Well definitely be back during our next visit and make it a tradition to visit.

Glad to have found this place. Beautiful natural surroundings including pond & great view of vineyard. Tasting room is nicely decorated. Tasting is a great deal at $5, including rosemary infused oil and local cheddar, as well as 6 wines each with a generous pour! Staff friendly, including the resident pooch. Picnic area seemed very nice, although we hadn't brought... More

My wife and I stumbled upon this winery while visiting family in the area. It's a little off the beaten path and It does not look like much as you drive up to the main building. However, upon entering we were surprised to find a new/modern tasting room and a warm welcome from the staff. The $5 cost to taste... More
