Snow Farm Vineyard
Open: Year Round
Snow Farm Winery and Vineyard began as a dream in 1992 - to preserve Vermont's agricultural land in the face of rapid development by providing an alternative for farmers. Our location, on an island in the middle of Lake Champlain permits us to grow cooler climate vinifera grapes, Pinot Noir and Riesling, as well as the more cold hardy French Hybrids, Vidal Blanc and Baco Noir. Thanks to Vermont's cold winter temperatures, Snow Farm also produces an ice wine, a product that cannot be made in many other places in the world.
Went to Snow Farm Vineyard as a spur of the moment outing and had a blast. Lovely wine tasting, staff is educated on the wine, decent pourings, beautiful location. I left with a couple bottles and couldn't wait to share!
My girlfriend and I had a lovely time at this place. The Riesling was my favorite, but we took home a bottle of the rose red as well. The woman at the bar told us quite a bit about the wines and answered our questions about the intriguing birdhouse forest down the street. We'll visit again and keep our eyes open for their wines in stores.
The staff was personable and very knowledgeable. Wine selection good and if you want wines made from grapes at the 45th parallel, this as close as it gets. Highly recommend.
Unbelievable! Bought a bottle of wine cheese and crackers took the stroll up the hill to enjoy it with the gorgeous view. They gave us a little basket napkin cutting board and knife. Very friendly and informative.
Beautiful location, but the pours for the (paid) tasting were really small (1-2 sips), and the food was unexpectedly expensive. They advertise a cheese and meat plate, but what is not as well advertised is that you're actually buying full blocks of cheese / packages of meat / boxes of crackers. Very friendly service, and the wines were ok (nothing special).
