Lincoln Peak Vineyard - Wine from our own vineyard:  blossom to bottle!

What's Happening

Tongues are wagging and confusion abounds. I’m here to set the neighborhood gossip to rest:  we’re NOT building on the corner of Rte 7 and River Rd.

 

We’re excited to have Silver Maple Construction as new neighbors on the corner. They bought the property last year, and the new building you see is their workshop. (Their offices are in the farmhouse.) Our vineyard wraps the corner property like an L.

We have about 12 acres of vines, and each one needs significant pruning every winter. Every shoot that grew last year must be cut back to the first bud. Our vineyard manager Roxanne Smith does the majority of this work by herself. She’s obviously our rock star.

 

In addition to all of this regular pruning (called “spur pruning,” because a little spur is left of each shoot), Roxanne take every opportunity to rejuvenate the vines. . Read More »

Sometimes, the beauty of the natural world doesn’t wait for you to stop and notice– it blasts your eyes, just to make sure you see. Yes, this moment (above) really happened on the 25th of January when ice coated every tendril and twig, and suddenly the sun broke free of the clouds. For similar fireworks for your taste buds, I hope you’ll join us for Wine & Chocolate Weekend.

We spent several days picking Frontenac Blanc, Frontenac Gris, and Frontenac grapes– the whole crazy family. These grapes are always the last of our harvest. We’re all dragging a little by the time we get there, but the Frontenacs this year were such good picking that our crew flew through the final days. And we’re done!!

Our La Crescent crop knocked our socks off! This year’s La Crescent was extraordinary– both quantity and quality. Our harvest crew worked hard and picked fast to bring in the fruit and bring our Grape-ometer to 103,854 lbs (including all grapes picked so far this year).

 

News of the beyond-belief beautiful bumper crop in Vermont was picked up by the AP and carried from the Burlington Free Press to the Seattle Times to New . Read More »

Our phenomenal harvest crew picked Marquette all last week, along with a few other red varieties. And some dedicated volunteers helped us start the La Crescent harvest during our Community Harvest on Thursday evening. All together, the grape-ometer jumped to 52,354 pounds last week. We start picking La Crescent in earnest tomorrow…

Our 2016 harvest got underway on Sept 8 with Louise Swenson, Prairie Star, and Adalmiina. These three varieties make our Black Sparrow, and they’re ready about a week earlier than the other grapes. We picked 10,967 pounds of these three grapes combined, and with that the 2016 Grape-ometer started ticking.
