*Did you know they use their maple syrup pulled from the evaporator at 18 brix** to make their delightful Snow Farm Vineyard Fox Hill Maple dessert wine?
**Did you know that brix is the measure of sugar content in an aqueous solution? They use it in wine too. So, you see, maple sugaring and wine making aren't all that different.
Snow Farm Vineyard
Not only a winery, but a beautiful spot in the middle of Lake Champlain that hosts concerts and weddings, Snow Farm Vineyards has been in existence since 1996. It was Vermont’s first commercial grape vineyard and winery. The location permits Snow Farm to grow cooler climate vinifera grapes, such as Pinot Noir and Riesling, as well as the more cold hardy French Hybrids, such as Vidal Blanc and Baco Noir. However, thanks to Vermont’s cold winter temperatures, in addition to producing table wines, Snow Farm produces, among other dessert wines, an ice wine, a product that cannot be made in too many other places in the world.
