VISIT TEN WINERIES AND BE ENTERED TO WIN A PRIZE!

Wine in the Green Mountain State is a growing industry. More and more wineries are popping up throughout the state, with their award winning products out on display for all to enjoy.

Flavorful cold hardy grapes like Frontenac, Marquette, and La Crescent are a key ingredient to Vermont’s delectable wines. Hand-crafted varieties of reds, whites, and dessert wines offer a full range of choices, as do fruity wines made with blueberries, rhubarb, apples and raspberries. Also, liqueur-like ice wines are not to be missed. These are made from grapes harvested after the arrival of winter, when the juice of the grapes is highly concentrated and super sweet. To sample Vermont’s delicious wines, plan on visiting wineries around the state for tastings and tours.

What pairs better with wine than cheese? Yeah, we can’t think of anything either! Lucky for visitors, Vermont wine and cheese can be savored at wineries, restaurants, and cafes, and purchased at farmers’ markets and annual festivals including the Vermont Life Wine and Harvest Festival and the Vermont Cheesemakers’ Festival.

Best in Show, Bronze, Silver, Gold – prestigious awards for Vermont’s wines and cheeses are a testament to the talent of Vermont’s vintners and cheesemakers.
