New York’s First Green Winery

Share this on:

Tourist attractions and natural beauty abound in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York, and the Red Tail Ridge winery will be no exception.  The construction of a new, high-performance green winery building will be a first for the state of New York.

Its owners are committed to sustainable wine-making and harvesting practices and plan to construct the new building to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards.

Green features will include a geothermal system, natural daylighting, efficient lighting, and locally-sourced and recycled-content building materials.  The new building is expected to be completed before the fall harvest.
