Enlightenment Wines is the smallest legal winery in New York State. Operating from a family farmstead in the Hudson Valley, this cult winery focuses on unfiltered dry meads and botanical fruit wines in limited numbers.
We embrace a complex tradition of winemaking practice, one which does not limit itself to grapes. Our wines draw on traditions from around the world and across time, are as interesting as they are delicious, and expand the conversation of what wine can be.
Utilizing lo-tech methods of fermentation with locally sourced juices, fruits, and herbs, Enlightenment Wines invites contemporary palates into a lively engagement with history, medicine, magic, and life.
