Many of our wines are unique to cold weather climates and come from grapes that are hybrids of the European Vinifera grapes. We take great pleasure in taking these new grape varieties and making them into wines that reflect their old world heritage. We constantly strive to make the highest quality wines that reflect our own unique "terroir", blending a respect for the sustainable tradition of Vermont agriculture with just the right mix of technology to ensure balance and consistency.
Our vineyard is located in Grand Isle Vermont on the shores of beautiful Lake Champlain (the east shore of course, hence our name). We currently have over 11 acres under vine and grow cold hearty hybrids such as Frontenac, Marquette, Louise Swenson, La Crescent and St. Croix. It can certainly be a challenge to manage the mix of weather Vermont offers, from -35°F frosts to 95° humid summer days. Find out more about our vineyard and the other regional growers who help supply the grapes for our award winning wines.
