Our Philosophy

At Sharp Rock Vineyards, we take great pride in being a small, artisan winery that crafts 12 award-winning wines each year from fruit that we hand-select and pick from our own vineyards. We use old-world wine making techniques, stressing balance and a minimalist style, to create wine reflecting our unique mountainside location.

Each wine is made in small lots, hand-bottled, and sold here in our renovated 100-year-old barn winery and tasting room. Our wine selection is diverse and includes crisp Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, fruity and bright Rosés, dry oak reds like our Petit Verdot and Malbec, and lightly sweet Chamois blends.

Each wine is available for a limited period during the year.

Recent Awards

  • Sauvignon Blanc — International Award Winner, 12 consecutive years
  • Malbec, Old Rag Red and Rosé — Yearly International Awards Winners

History

Sharp Rock Farm was established in the late 1700’s as a working family farm and we continue that tradition today with our vineyards, winery, and Bed & Breakfast cottages.

The first vineyards were planted in 1992 consisting of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc with additions soon after of Merlot, Malbec, and Sauvignon Blanc. Our last plantings were of Petit Verdot and Vidal. It is from these eight varietals that we make our twelve estate wines.

The winery opened in the Fall of 1998 and since then, Sharp Rock has selectively entered national and international wine competitions and won over 100 medals. Come visit us in our renovated barn tasting room and experience Sharp Rock Vineyards.

Gift certificates for the winery and B&B are available. Contact Sharp Rock.
