Grand View Winery, Vermont

 

 

Wine has been made in the six New England states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont, and on Long Island NY, for centuries, but in the past half century there are more vineyards and wineries, and far better wines, than ever before.

Despite the challenges of climate and soil, vintners have identified New England micro-climates suitable for producing good to excellent wines from noble vinifera grape varieties, as well as from the best French-American hybrids.

A key to the growth of vineyards in New England has been the program to develop cold hardy grapes at the University of Minnesota's College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resources Sciences. Continuing over a century of research and development of cold hardy varieties, the program creates grapes matched exactly to the growing conditions of northern microclimates. More...

Much of the wine made in New England over the centuries came not from grapes but from orchard and bush fruits such as apples, pears and blueberries, a tradition that continues today.

Varieties of New England wines include dry, semi-dry, sweet, fortified and sparkling wines. In addition, there are delicious specialties such as ice wines, ice ciders, and spirits such as brandies made from apples and other fruits.
