Established in 2016, Old Tavern Farm is a private boutique thoroughbred breeding farm in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. The name Old Tavern comes from a centuries old tavern that once sat on the property, saving some of the original infrastructure and incorporated in the barn.
Old Tavern Farm is focused on the breeding and sale of thoroughbreds that compete at the highest level of racing. The state-of the art facility balances a boutique breeding operation and a small number of pinhooking prospects each year. Through this operation, Old Tavern Farm shoots to bring ten elite offerings a year to the market.
Old Tavern Farm Winery is an extension of Old Tavern Farm, our family farm focused on the breeding and sale of thoroughbreds, competing at the highest level of racing. With every bottle telling a story about life on the farm, we are working hand-in-hand with impassioned growers and winemakers to create enjoyable wines. All of our wines are finished and bottled on our farm in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Having control over our grapes is crucial to maintaining the high quality and character of our wines. While waiting for the fruit from our Saratoga vineyard to mature, we spent a year identifying and selecting sites across the country based on diverse soils, microclimates and unique growing conditions, which maximizes flavor expression and produces rich and complex wines. We crafted a supply chain focused on and dedicated to quality. Owning our own plot of Cabernet Sauvignon on Red Mountain and having strong relationships with our partner vineyards on Wahluke Slope and Lodi, California, guarantees us consistency for each vintage.
