Wine News: Turning apples into wine
"Goold Orchards started selling apples 96 years ago. These days, the farm holds breakfasts and pumpkin pickings, sells pies, makes cider, sponsors craft shows, conducts school tours and puts on a 5K run.
Now, Goold owners want to add one more thing to the mix: wine.
Sue Goold Miller and her husband, Ed Miller, plan to apply for state Liquor Authority licenses to allow them to both make and sell wine and also offer tastings at the orchard.
They have already started producing wine, which they give out free to friends, but they hope to get the license and start selling the product later this year or early next year.
"I want to become an even more attractive destination," said Goold Miller. "We really want people to come to the farm."
Goold's is not the first fruit farm in this state to move in this direction. In Warwick, Orange County, Warwick Valley Winery makes and sells hard cider and apple port. Across the state in Niagara County, a fruit farm has branched out into The Winery at Marjim Manor, which sells wines made from a half-dozen types of fruits."
