Find locally pressed juices with locally grown fruit

Fruit juice may not seem at first to be a legitimate alternative to drinking, but once you realize what these folks are producing, it may sway your decision. While Upstate New York’s climate isn’t conducive to growing certain things, it ends up being perfect for others.

There’s a lot of different juices pressed here, but some of them are produced on entirely other level. You can get freshly pressed Riesling grape juice as a nice wine alternative. You’ll find blackberry juices that elevate your zeroproof cocktail to a whole new level.

Since it will likely be something you’re thinking as you run through this list, the task of dividing up New York into regions is nearly as complicated as deciding trying to create a hybrid grape to flourish in our climate!

Almost no one (even official state entities) has an agreed upon, official standard for separating the regions of the state. You will likely disagree with where some of the borders are drawn here. Try to remember the most important thing on this page is getting you connected with locally grown fruit juices in your area.

Buzzard Crest Vineyards

Buzzard Crest is the vineyard owned by the same people who own Barrington Cellars Winery. They’re using their own Concord grapes to press a red juice, and then Diamond and Niagara to press a white juice.

Buzzard Crest is unique to this list in that their juices are not pasteurized and have no added preservatives. You can buy different sizes to take home, and they’ve usually got some to drink on site. Because there is no pasteurization, they freeze all their juices to avoid fermenting.
