Wine is made in Vermont despite our long winter season.

During the past 10 years, winemaking and growing grapes has been very successful. There are approximately 20 registered wineries in the state, and even more vineyards.

Award-winning wines from cold hardy grapes such as Frontenac, Lacrescent, and St. Croix are grown in Vermont.

Meads, ciders, and fruit wines are also plentiful. In addition, Vermont wineries produce Ice Wines, which are made from grapes that freeze on the vines and are among the the best in the country.
