Our Vineyard at RiverWalk Resort
Located in the backyard of the RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain is our one-acre vineyard that plays host to more than just wine grape farming. The vineyard is the backdrop for family barbecues, weddings, hikes along the river, and of course, enjoying the extraordinary mountains that surround us.
The Vineyard Site
Located on the banks of the Pemigewasset River in Lincoln, NH is the RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain. The land was once an old papermill site that was remediated and now reclaimed for the building of this magnificent resort. Starting in 2019 and over the course of 4 years, 518 vines were planted and trained VSP (vertical shoot positioning) on 24 north-south trellis rows with 6′ x 8′ spacing.
The Minnesota Hybrids
Varieties that grow well in NH
We grow what are known as the “Minnesota Hybrids”, a cold-hardy, fast-ripening, and palate-pleasing assortment of grapes that make some terrific wines. Varieties such as Brianna, LaCrescent, Marquette, Sabrevois, Frontenac Gris, St. Croix and Prairie Star are a mix of white and red grape varieties that are made into our estate wines.
