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

I never planned to spend my life in agriculture, but after working on a dairy farm between school years at Middlebury College, I was pretty sure the farming life was for me.  I worked on apple orchards after graduation, and then in 1980, Michaela and I bought our land in New Haven.  I started an apple tree nursery and then a pick-your-own strawberry farm.  After nearly 25 years of growing strawberries, I heard about new varietals of winegrapes that are hardy enough for Vermont winters and starting planting vines in 2001.  The vineyard story picks up here.
