Local Highlight #5 : Harker House Wine & Spirits

our story

Harker House Wine & Spirits opened in July 2016 and is located in the hamlet of Clinton Corners, New York. The wine shop is in a former general store built in the 1800's at the crossroads of the hamlet. 

Harker House Wine & Spirits is owned by Hal Newell, a geologist with over twenty years of experience working on environmental remediation projects. Hal has spent years studying and tasting wines. He has visited with winemakers in classic regions like Bordeaux and Piedmonte and in ancient wine regions like Croatia and Sicily. 

Harker House was opened with the goal of providing quality and affordable wines ready for immediate enjoyment. In addition to stocking wines from across the globe, Harker House exclusively carries New York State Spirits that showcase outstanding products from the state's distillery boom. The Store offers over 300 wines, ciders and spirits. Over a third of the wines are certified-organic, biodynamic or sustainably farmed.
