SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Winery is currently in the process of building an addition to the establishment in order to accommodate more guests as well as indoor weddings. The winery sought permissions to build through the town of Milton.
The Saratoga Winery serves wine made from local grapes and serves food as well. The restaurant already has indoor and outdoor seating. However, outdoor seating is limited during the winter months. “More recently there’s been a need for it. We started doing more weddings a couple years ago, so it has really become a need within the past couple of years... It’s just kind of coming to fruition because we’ve been able to get it approved by the town and just certain things had to fall in place before we could really take the plunge with it,” said Amy Greth, Marketing Manager of the Saratoga Winery.
The addition is barn style and was built by the Amish. According to Greth, the barn is a large open space with high ceilings that is roughly 2,400 square feet. The structure will replace tents used in inclement weather during events at the winery. Construction began at the end of February and will be completed at the end of June.
