A brief history
Autumn's Harvest Vineyard has 2 acres of cold-climate wine-grape vines. Our varities include: Petite Pearl, Marquette, Sabrevois, LaCrescent, Briana, Itasca, and Lacrosse. My vineyard is managed in a sustainable manner which is healthier for the environment and produces exceptional quality grapes. Great wines begin in the vineyard, and we take pride in our intensive hands-on approach to ensuring we produce the highest quality grapes possible. All grapes are estate-grown to ensure only the best quality.
We grow cold-climate grape varieties because they can survive winters in portions of New York where winter temperatures occasionally dip to 20 degrees F or more below zero. These vines are also more resistant to disease. Of equal importance, cold-climate grapes produce exceptional wines that have depth, complexity, character, and tremendous flavor. Many varieties provide very fruit-forward wines.
Every effort is applied to grow the best quality grapes possible. Extensive canopy management is utilized to expose grape clusters to sunshine, which allows the grapes to fully ripen providing optimal flavors.
Tours of the vineyard are available upon request. We take pride in our vineyard and are happy to share our viticultural approach and knowledge with our guests.
