Wine Sales Are Back

Our wine selection (curated by Leah Mojer) places an emphasis on small, dynamic growers and producers who reflect the values and methods with which we farm our land and interact with our community. 

New this year - look for labels with colored borders to indicate the type of growing and producing practiced by the vineyard! Blue for sustainable farming, and green for biodynamic and organic farming!
New This Week...AVAL craft cider!  
Here's a little information to find out what the buzz is about!

“NEW YORK, NY (FEBRUARY 29, 2016) – America’s cider craze continues thanks to AVAL, the latest craft cider to hit the Vermont market. Translating to apple in Breton, the traditional language of France’s Bretagne province, AVAL is exclusively brewed on a family-owned farm in the region that’s been making cider for more than 1,000 years. And now, serious drinkers stateside can taste for themselves what all the buzz is about — and why Brittany (Bretagne in English) has been dubbed cider heaven by industry experts. A delightful, subtly sweet combination of four kinds of organic apples (acidic, bitter, bittersweet and sweet), AVAL is not made from concentrate and uses no added sugars or sweetener — just pure apple juice, harkening back to the way cider should be made.”
Find AVAL cider in the wine department!
