We stopped here recently to sample their wines. This winery is small and friendly. with no pretense; just good wines. The wood stove kept the rooms warm enough to enjoy the experience and the staff took time to show us all their different varieties. We purchased a few of our favorites.

Saw their sign and stopped in. The "open" sign was up but the door was locked. A few moments later a car drives up and we are greeted with a rude "can I help you?" She said they don't open until later in the day. She waited there watching us until we left. Made us feel like we were doing... More

The wine tasting was very unpleasant, the wine glasses had a previous patron's lipstick and when I mentioned it to the owner, I was given another dirty glass. We tried the red wines, although it was a 1 oz pour, we could not finish the tasting. The wine was harsh and bitter, leaving a bad aftertaste. We stopped at the... More

The barn were the tastings for both the wine and beer was beautiful, music was super chill and everyone very friendly. The beer and wine were nice as well. Pizza's were being made in the pizza oven outside. Tables set up outside to enjoy a glass or pint and some food.

Traveled here with family to sample the wine one fall day. Now that they offer beer I will have to go back.

This is my favorite winery/brewery to visit in Vermont. There is rustic home-made atmosphere (that is genuine) that I like that is absent in most other wineries and breweries. Not to mention both the wine and the beer is pretty tasty!

My ranking is for wine not beer. Their focus has switched to beer and with amazing results in their Foley Brothers beers. You can do much better at Lincoln Peak and others if wine is what you really care about. And the grapes that grow in VT make sweet wines almost universally so be aware of that. Vermont ain't Napa...

While on vacation in Vermont August 2014, my husband and I visited the Neshobe River Winery and Foley Brothers Brewery (Part of same business). The personnel in the tasting room were very friendly and knowledgable about their craft beers and wines. The location is on a farm in the beautiful state of Vermont in an idyllic location. I would give... More

We stopped recently while we were passing through Brandon. It's not the easiest place to find, but it is a beautiful inn in addition to a family-run winery and brewery. They offer samples of both their wines and beers, and we liked the beer much more than the wine, which tasted a bit young to us at the time. The... More

Wines were quite good if you're looking for different styles from northern grape varietals. Also very good beer brewery. You can do tastings of both wines and beers. Worth a trip if you're in the area.
