Inspired by Dr. Garth Cahoon, a well-established viticulturist, that his family farm in Warren County had the ideal soil and weather condition to grow grapes, Ken Schuchter started the winery in 1969.
Today, second and third generations of the family operate it. The winery offers three dining rooms, a tasting room and private cookout areas, a craft beer brewery, and cellar tours. With 80 acres of vineyards, the wines are made exclusively from grapes grown on the property. The winery produces between 25,000 and 45,000 gallons annually. Some of the most popular wines include Vidal Blanc, Pink Catawba, Red Reflections, Cabernet Franc, and ice wine.
