Tug Hill Vineyards

Estate Winery and Distillery

Tug Hill Vineyards is one of the many family-owned farms nestled in the Black River Valley region of Northern New York. The 40-acre estate, on the Tug Hill Plateau overlooks the valley and the Adirondack Mountains, making it one of the most serene and picturesque estate wineries.

Established in 2007, Tug Hill Vineyards was one of the first pioneering wineries in New York to plant cold-hardy hybrid grape varieties developed in Minnesota. French-American varieties such as Marquette, Frontenac, La Crescent, and others form the foundation of our wine-making practice. We’re dedicated to producing products from grapes and fruits that can grow on our estate. A proud supporter of responsible farming techniques, organic practices, and local farmers, our products are of the highest quality.

Come to the tasting cellar to learn about our products, enjoy the wine, and  our beautifully landscaped gardens. Take in the view from our timber frame banquet hall during any of our public events like “Wine Down” or our Sunday Brunch, we’re looking forward to your visit!

Our family went out to do some berry picking and we weren’t disappointed. We managed to pick blueberries, red currants, and tart cherries. It was an amazing day and everyone at the vineyard was really friendly. Well be going back regularly (especially when the raspberries are ripe!)
