Snow Farm Vineyard and Winery

Snow Farm Vineyard began as a dream on the West Shore of South Hero, Vermont. In an effort to preserve Vermont's agricultural land in the face of rapid development by providing an alternative for farmers, grapes were planted in the fields. The microclimate of the Champlain Islands, permits the growth of cooler climate, vinifera grapes like Riesling. In addition to cold hardy french hybrid varieties like, Vidal Blanc, Seyval Blanc, Leon Millot and Baco Noir. Snow Farm also produces an ice wine, a product that cannot be made in many other places around the world. Snow Farm Vineyard is Vermont’s first commercial vineyard & winery producing craft wines from the heart of the Champlain Islands since 1997. The Snow Farm Inn is the historic 1820s farmhouse by the lake. There are gardens with historic Harry Barber stone castles, wedding ceremony locations and vineyard views in the field across the road.
