If you haven't been to the Saratoga Winery recently, you are missing out on a really special experience. Wine, great food, music, and a warm, inviting atmosphere all work together to make this a unique place. Grill 64 uses only the finest, freshest ingredients in their wood-fired pizzas and other delicious entrees, along with salad, desserts, and -- last time I went -- chili in a freshly-baked bread bowl and roasted asparagus. This is gourmet food at its finest in a relaxing, unpretentious environment.

Not too impressed with the wine. The establishment is great and relaxing. We went last Friday for food and it was weak at best. Not there fault, the winery hires out for food. I believe it was G4 that was there. Way over priced for burnt wood fired pizza. $8 for a half bowl of chili that stunk! I love supporting my home town, but save your money or eat before going. Looked like good night life for younger crowd. all in all a 3 star!

We apologize if your time at the Saratoga Winery was anything less than an exceptional experience! Every Friday, we feature Live Music showcasing local artists and Wood Fired Pizzas from Grill 64, to create a fun yet relaxed atmosphere as an alternative to the hustle and bustle of Downtown Saratoga. Grill 64 is a family-owned, farm-to-table caterer supporting local businesses, and always striving to offer an unparalleled dining experience. We would love to invite you back once again, for an evening on us, so that our knowledgeable staff may assist you in finding one of our 18 hand-crafted wines that may better suit your palate, and can have a better chance to enjoy the truly superior quality of Grill 64! Please contact Shannon ( for more information to redeem this offer for what we, and many of our valued customers believe is always a 5 Star affair at the Saratoga Winery!

Just 5 miles out of town, I pull up the Saratoga Winery. I'm always suprised at how little time it takes to get there because when i'm there, I feel like i'm on some sort of retreat as I walk into this bright and sunny beautiful log cabin. Of all the wonderful and exciting things to do in Saratoga, my favorite thing to do is to get off work after a long day and kick back at the winery with my best friends and a glass of my favorite chardonnay in the entire world. Not only the wine, but the service and atmosphere is just as comforting, refreshing, and outstanding. The Manager, Kelsey Whalen, does a wonderful job at coordinating events and booking local bands on the weekends. I reccomend this place to anyone who likes great music, great wine, and great company.
I congradulate and thank the family who started this wonderful business in my home town :)

The Saratoga Winery is such a unique place. If you have not yet visited, be sure to put this on your to do list. The place itself is beautiful, the deck a perfect place to hang out, hear some great music and taste some of the delicious wines. I can't pick my favorite wine because they are all so good. I can't wait for my next visit!

To sum it up.. The Saratoga Winery is amazing! As a wine lover, who enjoys an annual trip to the Fingerlakes, it's so nice to have such a great winery so close to home! It's beautiful inside and out! I love the new deck! Whether you are looking for somewhere to go with friends for a wine tasting in the afternoon or a relaxing night out with good food and great entertainment.. The winery is a great choice! We have family drive almost an hour to come to the winery with us on Friday nights! Not to mention, the great events they host! My kids LOVE to visit Santa at the winery around Christmas time. He's such a great santa! I could go on forever. If you haven't checked it out.. DO IT and I am sure you'll be on here raving about it soon after! (My recommendation.. WHITNEY'S WHITE!)

The Saratoga Winery is a jewel in Saratoga. It is our "go to" place for bringing friends and family in who are visiting or just want a night out. We love the wine, and the staff are wonderful. Rich and Tara have done a fantastic job and we look forward to seeing what they do in the coming year. Hands down our favorite winery in the area. We always have a great experience when we go. Thank you also to Kelsey for being so awesome and taking care of us when we come!

Just to keep the spotless reviews going - The Saratoga Winery DEFINITELY needs to be added to your top places in Saratoga to visit! The wine is above and beyond what you would expect and is truly delicious. Kelsey, the manager, is incredibly knowledgeable about the wines and is guaranteed to find you something you will like, as well as teach you many new things about their wines. She has a charming personality that you are sure to like. The atmosphere of the winery is one you don't want to miss, it shows the charm and beauty of Saratoga with a touch of Adirondack. They do a great job utilizing the space and keeping it comfortable, clean, and organized. You are sure to leave with a pleasant experience, delicious wine, and maybe even something extra from the awesome gift room - which has a variety of things for sale all made by local vendors! This is also an excellent place to book events as Kelsey is a spot-on event planner that covers every detail, leaving you with a guarantee to have a great time. Enjoy the Saratoga Winery, I sure do!

The Saratoga Winery is one of the area's treasures. Rich and Tara, the owners and Kelsey, the manager, have made the Winery a destination you don't want to miss. The handcrafted wines are amazing, unlike any you will find at other wineries. The welcoming atmosphere the entire staff creates makes you want to return again and again. The music on Fridays is top rate and the beautiful Adirondack deck is just the place to unwind after a long week. We wish the Saratoga Winery another great year ahead and we will be there to enjoy it as often as we can. Thanks for a truly delightful experience!

The Saratoga Winery is truly a place not to miss. From the awesome wood fired Pizza on Fridays with local live music to
a glass of wine on the adirondack style deck. I have been to many functions there and always amazed at the manager Kelsey and her attention to all details to make sure things are beyond what you expected. Book a party or come with a friend you won"t be disappointed.

Casual, inviting atmosphere and friendly, knowledgeable staff. My family and I have attended several events there (which is wonderful as they are all kid-friendly) and have never been disappointed. Any day but Friday(when they serve wood-fired pizza), you can bring your own picnic and share a bottle of wine out on their amazing deck. I would highly recommend The Saratoga Winery and look forward to going there again!

Wonderful experience!! If you haven't yet had the chance to visit, whether it be for a tasting or for the wine and live music on friday nights (and the awesome wood fired pizza), you need to make a point of it. You will be greeted by some of the nicest owners and are very knowledgable and take the time to make your experience nothing but enjoyable. The atmosphere is very comfy, casual and relaxed.
