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

Archive for the ‘Tidbits & Fun’ Category

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.

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.

A group of wine writers visited Lincoln Peak Vineyard in June as part of Taste Camp and gave our wines some rave reviews. Here are a few of their thoughts:


On Limestone:

“At Lincoln Peak, the varietal La Crescent was good, but when blended with Frontenac Blanc for a wine they call “Limestone,” it shines bright. That wine is citrusy and faintly minerally.”

We name this wine in honor of the Farnsworth family, who farmed this land from 1816 to 1919. They would never have imagined that . Read More »
