It's unbelievable that a town so small could be packed with so much to do. Shelburne Farms and Shelburne Museum are top Vermont destinations but Shelburne Vineyard and across the street neighbor, Fiddlehead Brewery, attract droves of their own. Visit to drink wine paired with exceptional Vermont cheeses, surrounded by the vineyards where the grapes were grown.
Fiddlehead Brewing Company is one of Vermont’s newest craft breweries located in the beautiful town of Shelburne, Vermont. Our mission is to produce full flavored beers with the true beer connoisseur in mind. We focus on depth of flavor, freshness of ingredients, and incorporating local products when possible. Renowned brew master and owner Matthew Cohen (known industry wide as Matty O) is on a continual quest to craft the perfect pint. While several seasonal selections are always available on tap at the brewery, our flagship beer, the Fiddlehead IPA, can be found on draft lines all over Northern Vermont.Add to My Places

Shelburne Farms is a working farm, including a dairy, Market Garden, and woodlands. The food that we grow honors and preserves the land it comes from. That's what building a sustainable food system is all about. What make us unique is that we also use our food and farming practices to educate others about sustainable agriculture and our shared connections to the soil.

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
