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

In our area

Vermont is the best place in the world, in our not-so-humble and very-biased opinions.  And the folks here in Addison County offer some of the best fun, food, and festivities in Vermont.  But with so many things to do in Middlebury, how can you choose?  Here’s the locals’ inside scoop.

For the “adult beverage” explorer:

  • We’re on the Middlebury Tasting Trail! Within 5 miles of our vineyard, you can visit the country’s leading producer of hard cider, Woodchuck, two fabulous micro-breweries, Drop-In and Otter Creek (who also brew Shed), and three distinctive distilleries, too, Stonecutter SpiritsAppalachian Gap, and WhistlePig Whiskey (tastings inside Danforth Pewter).  These tastings are some of our favorite things to do in Middlebury. Tell ’em we say “hi!”

 

For the food lover:

Hungry?  I hope so!  There are a lot of good things to eat here.

  • Looking for a place to eat with Vermont-grown food on the menu?  The Vermont Fresh Network is a great resource to find restaurants who feature local ingredients.

 

For the tired traveler:

 

For the outdoor enthusiast:

  • The Trail Around Middlebury (TAM) comes within a half mile of the vineyard, with great options for walkers, runners, and mountain bikers. It’s one of the best outdoor things to do in Middlebury.
  • Snake Mountain, about 20 minutes west of us, is a family-accessible hike with great views to Lake Champlain.  The Long Trail and its network of side trails offer hikes for all levels.  For group outings open to all, visit the Bread Loaf Section of the Green Mountain Club.
  • The Lincoln Peak challenge:  We are named after a real mountain that we see from the top of vineyard (it’s the left-most bump on our mountain logo).  Hike Lincoln Peak (elevation 3972 feet) and send us a picture of yourself at the top for our Peak Baggers’ Hall of Fame.  Bonus points if you’re drinking Lincoln Peak Vineyard wine at the top, like these intrepid Lincoln Peak hikers at right.  (This is a challenging hike; please don’t attempt it without planning and preparing.)
