HIDDENCROFT VINEYARDS

Hiddencroft has undergone big changes in the last few years, and now holds tastings in a circa-1830 farmhouse and, in a warmer weather, a 1930's bank barn with--as their website describes it-- massive beams and sturdy floors, with sliding doors that open the barn up to sunlight and fresh air on both the North and South sides. The barn is available for private events.

What hasn't changed is the excellent wine. Tucked away as Hiddencroft is, they often don't get the buzz they deserve, but they get plenty of respect from those who know wine. There is plenty of space to spread out on the 26-acre farm, where the farmhouse accommodates tasters at two bars, and visitors can relax in several rooms upstairs or on the large deck with a vineyard view.

Wines at the time of this writing include Vidal Blanc, Traminette, a Chambourcin Rose, barrel-aged Chambourcin, a red blend called Dutchman's Creek Blend, Cabernet Franc, Tannat, plus several fruit wines: Cherry, Blueberry (called Grandma's Love Potion), Raspberry/Chambourcin Blend and Blackberry.
