At Shelburne Vineyard we make fine wines from our own Vermont and regionally produced grapes. As pioneers of the VT wine industry (we were founded in 1998), we now harvest almost 20 acres of our own grapes annually. Our wines have consistently achieved “Best in Show” awards at the International Cold Climate Wine Competition, and have, along with our other White, Rosé, Ice and Late Harvest wines, have earned highest honors in other national and international competitions including the Big E, the Atlantic Seaboard Wine Competition, the Finger Lakes Wine Competition. We grow our grapes sustainably using a protocol known as Vine Balance developed by Cornell University and our Winery and Tasting Room has earned LEED Certification. We make a concerted effort to be environmentally responsible and partner with and support local community non-profit organizations. Our Winery and Tasting Room, located on Shelburne Road (RT 7) in historic Shelburne VT, welcomes visitors for tours tastings seven days a week all year and offers other VT made products as well as our own wines. Our space is available as a venue for public and private events and we have a regular schedule of concerts, storytelling, special events and festivals. Our wines are available at the Tasting Room as well as in shops and restaurants throughout VT, in New Hampshire and through our distributor, VT Wine Merchants.Add to My Places
Welcome to Vermont’s first vineyard and grape winery. What you’ll see at the vineyard began as a dream and passion in 1992 - the fierce desire to keep land agricultural in Vermont. With land becoming more valuable for its development potential than for its worth farming, we were concerned with the future of our state, afraid of losing what makes Vermont unique.
Fortunately our dream became the dream of others, and together, Vermont’s first commercial grape vineyard and winery came into existence in 1996. It is our hope that we can provide an alternative for farmers, so that they can rededicate their land to a new agricultural pursuit and keep it working rather than selling it for residential or commercial purposes. Supporting us supports our mission of keeping the land open and working.
