• Altamont Winery free tasting in Cohoes

17 Nov

COHOES — The Wine Seller at Harmony House Marketplace has something a bit different for its weekly free New York wine tasting this Friday.

Altamont Vineyard & Winery, the successor to Larry’s Winery, will be featured from 5 to 7 p.m. Louis DiCrescenzo, his son Michael and Deborah Crawford grow more than 20 varieties of grapes in the Helderberg Mountains. Altamont’s flagship wine is a 2008 Leon Millett Reserve, a red wine that it likens to Chianti or Pinot Noir. Among its seven other red and white wines is a 2009 Riesling made from Finger Lakes grapes it purchases.

As usual, all tasted wines will be discounted by 25% and all other wines in the store by 10% off.

Harmony House Marketplace is located at 184–190 Remsen Street. Phone: (518) 238-2232.
