Our Story

High atop Ballston Lake, with views of the mountains stretching to Vermont, sits the home of Galway Rock Vineyard & Winery and Saratoga Sparkling Wine Co. In 2014, Kate Soldani started the winery in Galway, New York, using her parents two-stall garage where she worked mostly by hand for five years as her clean and elegant wines gained a following and recognition. The inspiration for the garage winery came from the Garagiste movement in France, where renegade winemakers crafted small batches of exceptional wine outside of the chateaux system in the face of tradition.

Building off this idea, Kate has brought the best of the Garagistes movement to the foothills of the Adirondacks where she looks forward to sharing this stunning new property and imaginative wines with you.
