Events & Hours
WINE CELLAR We welcome visitors to our cozy tasting room to learn about our vineyard and the grape varieties that grow well in the North Country. We offer wine tastings daily and our fee is $3 which allows you to pick 6 wines to taste from our list of over 20 wines, including sparkling wines, dry and sweet wines, and a late harvest wine.
Our tasting room includes a gift shop designed to offer you all your wine related needs, and a picturesque view of the Black River Valley. Make the best of your trip by planning to spend some time with us. We have a selection of local cheeses, Croghan bologna (a local favorite!), and crackers available for a snack with your wine. Feel free to bring your own picnic, enjoy a glass of wine or beer available here at the winery and relax in our beautifully landscaped gardens located next to our vineyards.
