The sap of our maple trees looks and tastes like water with a hint of sweetness. This sap only flows in late winter. The ideal weather has nights in the 20s and days warming up to the 40s.
We are very excited to introduce you to “Persephone”, our new sparkling Concord! It was a natural progression to create a sparkling red wine after the successful release of Kelliokee last November and these sparkling sisters are getting along famously!
Just over a year ago our first sparkling wine Kelliokee, was an instant hit! Lightly tropical with a jazzy sparkle, Kelliokee sold out in just a few months! We bottled more and in August, Kelliokee brought home the Gold Medal in the 2018 Atlantic Seaboard Wine Competition.
Our crop of 2018 is in! We have time now to give our thanks to the people who work together to make our wine. Anyone who grew anything this year knows it has been one of the most difficult growing seasons since 1996. A record rainfall of 7 feet this growing season and constantly concealed sunsh
How do we know when it's time to pick our grapes? The most important day of the year is the day we pick because it determines the kind of wine we’ll make from those grapes.
We are thrilled to announce that two of our latest products are recent award winners! Fans of our sparkling Traminette, Kelliokee, knew she was as good as gold, but now the Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association has confirmed it!

We have had a tremendous response to our new Bear Creek Hard Cider! Saturday, June 30th we will celebrate Wise County’s first hard apple cider, and our farm life with “A Day in the Country”.
MountainRose Vineyards is proud to introduce Bear Creek Hard Cider, a modern sparkling cider that tastes like the Honey Crisp apples from which it was made.
Rumor has it that you and I may not have received our invitation to Harry and Megan’s Royal wedding. Right!? Just in case this is true, MountainRose Vineyards is here to help!
Many thanks to the 70+ people who joined us for tours, a variety of pancakes, maple syrup, cotton candy and other delicious maple treats in February at our Maple Syrup Fest! We boiled almost 1000 gallons of sap to get a little more than 12 gallons to sell in 8 and 16 oz. jugs.
