We have been making wine as a hobby for 40 years. Don began winning awards in wine competitions and currently has more than 40 awards from across the country. This has been such a fun hobby we thought starting a winery would keep us busy after retirement.
Don began rebuilding his great grandfathers barn in 2003. It was definitely a challenge but important to the family that the barn be restored. Many family functions have been held At The Barn over the years. It has been a blessing to have a venue where our large and constantly growing family could gather for holidays and celebrations.
We planted our first vines in 2007 and continue to add vines every year. Currently we have Concord, Chancellor, Muscadine, Cayuga White, Niagara, Catawba and Traminette growing on the property. We also grow a variety of berries, apple trees, peach trees and a pear tree (without a partridge).
Recently retired, Don has officially become a vintner and winemaker. Please stop in for a visit, we look forward to raising a glass with you.
Don and Debby Stutz
