Vineyard & Tours

Coffin Ridge has 25 acres under cultivation primarily consisting of cold hardy varieties. One of the most asked questions is: "Can you grow grapes way up there" The simple answer is. YES, of course. We enjoy long hot summers, but we suffer through long cold winters as well. We select varieties that are suited to our unique climate. We choose varieties that are Disease Resistant and cold hardy and thus require less intervention to keep them healthy. We believe that by selecting these unique varieties our vineyards will thrive and so far that is evidenced in our wines. :
