Cayuga White, a popular Eastern hybrid varietal, is the base for this fizzy wine. Cayuga White grown in our vineyard is fermented dry leaving notes of tangerine, grapefruit and honey. Post-fermentation, we dry hopped with Citra imparting guava, mango and passionfruit. Next, we force-carbonated this wine and turned it into a wine/beer hybrid. It smells like an IPA and tastes like a fizzy, dry, white wine. This wine was invented by our winemaker who loves beer but can’t have gluten. This is the perfect after work drink and pairs nicely with a chicken dinner, BBQ, or pasta
Our single varietal estate Cayuga White is dry and aromatic. On the nose there are notes of candied orange, white peaches and wet stony minerality. This wine has fruity aromas, yet finishes crisp and clean. Grown right here in our vineyard, our winemaker has the ability to pull this fruit in at the exact right moment when the sugars and acid come into balance naturally. This is an excellent food wine with enough backbone to stand up to heavier dishes such as homemade mac and cheese, clam chowder or pork chops.
Traminette is one of our favorite grapes grown here in our vineyard, which is why you see it featured 3 different ways on our menu. When Traminette ripens, it turns a gorgeous deep golden yellow-orange. Our Traminette is cold soaked in order to extract the maximum flavor and color from the skins. It has perfumed aromas that are both floral and spicy with notes of guava and citrus that linger on the tongue. Our Reserve Traminette is fermented to dryness making it an excellent food companion. Pair with a ham dinner, crab cakes or chicken broccoli alfredo.
Frontenac Gris is a white hybrid grape grown here in our vineyard. On the nose are aromas of pineapple, guava and bright citrus. This is a bright expression of Frontenac Gris, with bubbles delivering bursts of tropical fruit, and a dry, crisp finish. If you like Prosecco, chances are you will love our Sparkling Frontenac Gris. Enjoy a glass during a celebratory toast or pair with your favorite appetizer such as chicken wings, nachos or fondue. Or try using in your favorite champagne cocktail such as a Kir Royale or Aperol Spritz.
Wine Dog, our flagship wine, is a semi-sweet Cayuga White. On the nose you can notice hints of ripe melon, tangerine and honey. This wine has just enough sweetness to balance the acidity- not too sweet, not too dry. Enjoy a glass while cooking dinner as this bottle pairs well with just about any cuisine that ends up on the table. Try it with any of your weekday dinners such as grilled chicken, shrimp scampi or fajitas.
In memory of Zima, our 1st wine dog.
Adopted in 2001 from the Worcester Animal Rescue League, Zima developed her own job description. She greeted and gave tours of “her” vineyard to our guests, played soccer and frisbee with visiting kids, helped during harvest and occasionally indulged in a sip of wine (she had a very developed palate for a dog!).
For over 40 years, we have rescued dogs; each one unique in their own way, but Zima will always hold a very special place in our hearts. To honor her and all rescues, those who’ve found forever homes and those still waiting for a loving home, we are donating $1 per bottle sold, to the Worcester Animal Rescue League in Worcester, MA. As of 2018, we’ve donated almost $15,000 in Zima’s honor!
This fruity wine has an intoxicating nose, a mixture of tangerine, pineapple and peaches with a sweetness that is balanced by the natural acidity common to New England grapes.
Come in out of the cold of winter and escape into a Mediterranean fantasy with this Pomegranate essence infused Riesling. Pomegranate seeds are naturally high in acidity and this essence imparts a crispness which nicely balances the sweetness of the Riesling. A holiday party hit!
Our semi-sweet Traminette has a floral nose, somewhat similar to a Gewurztraminer. It has notes of ripe pineapple, grapefruit and honey comb. This wine starts out with a hint of sweetness, but finishes crisp and dry. It is an excellent accompaniment to food with a little kick, like pad thai, curry or smoked bbq.
Estate grown Vignole grape is blended with a small amount of our Cayuga White. Woodstock Hill White starts with a kiss of sweetness which immediately gives way to notes of pineapple, orange blossoms, and flowers. It has a rounded acidity and a slight minerality.
Our Riesling is showcased without its popularly known sweetness.This dry Riesling is bursting with fruit and minerality. The nose showcases what Riesling is known for with notes of petrol, stone fruit and green apple. Our Riesling is a juicy and full-bodied white, balanced and round. This wine is excellent served chilled on its own or paired alongside roasted chicken, pork tenderloin or your favorite dips and cheeses.
Organic cranberries are fermented into wine and aged for 7 months before blending it with our Riesling wine. The Cranberry Riesling is tart on the front and dry on the finish. It is a must for Thanksgiving!
