VINT HILL CRAFT WINERY

Housed in a 1912 dairy farm barn, Vint Hill has some interesting history: this is the building where in 1944 U.S. military intercepted the German encryption codes that started the end of World War II. Vint Hill Craft Winery is now a place where would-be grape farmers can get some hands-on experience before taking the agricultural plunge.

A teaching and tasting bar upstairs overlooks the production facility, where private vintners (or small groups going in together) come and go, checking on their barrels or consulting with the in-house winemaker.

Vint Hill offers classes on all aspects of winemaking, as well as tastings of a variety of wines, including Vint Hill-labeled and some of the best student-crafted wines. At this writing, tastings included Vint Hill-labeled Petit Manseng and Viognier, plus private-labeled wines including Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, and a dry red blend. Reservations required for groups of 8 or more. No outside food allowed in tasting room. Kids welcome; no dogs in tasting room.
