Huntington River Vineyard is situated on the sloping hills of Galloping Hill Farm in Huntington, Vermont. Former hay fields and pastures are now growing grapevines, currently nine different varieties all considered to be ‘cold hardy’.
These grapes can withstand the cold temperatures of Vermont down to -35 below 0. We chose these varieties when we planted knowing our hillside temperatures can often reach sub-zero during our long winters. While these grapes have names you might not yet be familiar with, they do make wonderful wines, some of them ‘award winning.’
