• Adirondack wine starring in Saratoga musical

11 Aug

SARATOGA SPRINGS — There is only one New York State wine represented in “Wine Lovers: The Wine Tasting Musical” playing here through Sunday, August 21.

It’s a Chardonnay from Adirondack Winery in Lake George, notes co-owner Sasha Pardy.

The unique show, playing at Universal Preservation Hall, 25 Washington Street, allows attendees to sample six different wines while enjoying the three-person musical. (Ticket info here.)

“Wine Lovers” tells the story of a charming artist and a know-it-all business woman, two seemingly incompatible students attending a wine class led by a wine connoisseur whose goal is to impart the pleasures of selecting and drinking wine. Over the course of 70 minutes, the “students” and the audience learn all about reds, whites, screw caps, Zinfandels “… and a little bit about love.”

“The original concept came out of the inherent theatricality of a wine class, and the reasons why people attend such a class,” says Michael Green, the show’s creator, who served as Gourmet magazine’s wines and spirits consultant for 19 years. “Wine is such a romantic beverage that turning a wine tasting into a musical love story just felt natural.”

Adirondack Winery & Tasting Room is located at 285 Canada Street in Lake George; Phone: (518) 668-9463.
