Fire Guts Elfs Farm Winery & Cider Mill 

Side Dishes

The Adirondack wine industry, and a local family, took a hit over the weekend when fire gutted Plattsburgh’s Elfs Farm Winery & Cider Mill.

The winery, owned by Tom Frey and his two sons, produces apple wine and hard cider, as well as wines from cold-climate grape varietals. Frey spent the past seven years renovating a former motel to create the winery, and 2010 was its first full year of operation.

The building and all the wine on the premises — about 1500 cases in bottles and tanks — were lost, according to local reports. Many of the grapevines survived undamaged, and no one was injured.
