Products from Swedish Hill Winery and Saratoga Salsa & Spice Company to be featured in casino restaurant

SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York (April 17, 2014) – Saratoga Casino and Raceway has announced two new business partnerships with Swedish Hill Winery and the Saratoga Salsa & Spice Company. Products from the two Broadway businesses will be featured at Fortunes, the trackside restaurant at the casino.|

“Twenty To One” wine will now be served by the glass or bottle in Fortunes Restaurant. The dry white wine bottled by the Swedish Hill Winery is exclusive to Saratoga and is only sold at the Saratoga tasting room as well as select stores and restaurants. The wine was specifically created by Swedish Hill to commemorate the 2012 racing season in Saratoga.

“Our family has always had an admiration for horses, so being able to partner with Saratoga Casino and Raceway is very exciting for us,” said David Peterson, Co-owner of Swedish Hill Winery. “We’re thrilled to have our ‘Twenty To One’ poured at their restaurant. Great local wine, gaming and racing all adds up to a great time!”

Also planned to be offered at Fortunes in the coming weeks is Saratoga Salsa & Spice Company’s “Bloody Marè” mix. The popular selection from the local shop will replace Fortune’s current recipe for their house Bloody Mary.

“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Saratoga Casino and Raceway,” said John Knotek, owner and President of Saratoga Salsa & Spice Company. “This partnership, based on creating signature cocktails and dishes that utilize our products, presents a very unique opportunity for our Saratoga based business to expand our market reach. We look forward to writing another page of Saratoga Salsa & Spice history with Saratoga Casino and Raceway.”

“We are always looking for more ways to incorporate fresh, local products to our menu,” said Jennie Jurkiewicz, Director of Food and Beverage at Saratoga Casino and Raceway. “The local products we’ve already introduced have been very well received by our guests and we’re excited to be adding two more to our menu in Fortunes.” 

Originating from the Finger Lakes, Swedish Hill Winery opened up their tasting room in Saratoga Springs in September of 2011. Located at 379 Broadway, their tasting room features many of their most popular selections. The winery has received a multitude of awards over the years, including the Governor’s Cup, the highest award given to a New York State winery, which Swedish Hill was awarded three times.

Saratoga Salsa & Spice Company is committed to offering their customers exciting and enjoyable specialty dishes with a bit of ‘attitude.’ Their award winning product line ranges from salsas and sauces to BBQ rubs and marinades that offer a unique taste of Saratoga. Saratoga Salsa & Spice Company is located on 398 Broadway in Saratoga Springs.
