A Vineyard In Vermont

A Vineyard in Vermont | A community winery for creating raw, organic Vermont wine.

Short Summary

We are part of a new wave of Vermont farmers, grape growers and wine makers who believe that wine is food and soil comes first. Parts of our learning curve have been well-trodden by generations of farmers in this beautiful state. There are good reasons why much of the rest of the country looks to Vermont to keep its soul alive.

Douglas is a graphic designer and I am a writer. We are both gardeners. Our small piece of Vermont is in a valley that feels like the mountainous regions and high country in France, Switzerland, and Italy. Our immediate neighbors all farm and garden organically—vegetables, herbs, beef, dairy, chickens, and apples. Hmmm, we thought, what could we add to this beautiful picture? We’ve watched the wine world change as more people reach beyond conventional, ordinary wines for natural, healthy, raw wines. Natural wine and cider makers in Vermont are creating a new wine region. We’ve got six acres of grapes in the ground—some we sell to our neighbors and fellow natural winemakers. We’d like to start making our own wines. Your contribution will help us to build a simple building to crush, press, make and store some delicious new natural wines. 

 

What We Need & What You Get

Adopt a Vermont Vine!

We are hoping to raise $140,000 to build the place to make our wines. The winery will have a basement for storage, a main floor for pressing and blending, a crush pad for stomping, and a third floor for storage and interns. You can receive la Collina glasses, tote bags, a case of wine, a vine in your name (through our unique Adopt-a-Vermont-Vine program), a reserve label in your name, and a place at the harvest table (come help us stomp!), depending on your contribution. If we don’t reach our total goal, we’ll begin by buying a press, a de-stemmer, and some fermentation tanks. Then we’ll press on!

Be a Part of a Brave New Wine Region

Help us to build this new wine region in Vermont—unique in flavor, terroir, and place in world viticulture. You can be a part of this brave new future. We’ve watched these alpine vines survive three winters, and they just get stronger. The less intervention, the better. The grapes balance sweet and tart (acid and fruit) in the most graceful ways.

It Isn’t All Easy

Like all farming, and all organic farming, there are risks. Japanese beetles, mold, temperatures below minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit, hungry wild turkeys, hail at bud break. Welcome to New England. Vermont wine makers are pioneers, and we are all learning together. Our community of wine and cider makers shares wine information and support. We learn from the plants and from each other.

In Vino Veritas!

If you are unable to contribute financially, please help us by sharing our campaign with friends and family. Buy natural wines and learn more about natural wine makers. Come help us plant and harvest!
