Wild Wines at Shelburne Vineyard

Winemaker Ethan Joseph will celebrate his tenth year with Shelburne Vineyard in 2017 – he has been working with the winery since his days at UVM.

Winter Cocktails

We were sitting down to find some Vermont-themed cocktails for the New Year when lo and behold, Butternut Mountain Farm posted their Pinterest Board of maple inspired cocktails for 2017. This covers the territory from Winter Daiquiris to a classic Bourbon Maple Cider to a not-so-classic Maple Bacon Pisco Sour (admittedly, Vermont has no pisco makers but most of the cocktail basics can be covered by our fine line up of distillers).
