Local Vermont Wine Near Burlington
Looking for the best wine in Vermont? Ok, we can't officially make that claim, but both first-time visitors to Vermont and locals alike will tell you that this is some pretty good stuff.
We have a unique variety of wines that will please any palate. If you like reds, perhaps try our Cabernet Sauvignon. This medium bodied red wine is aged in French Oak and will add flavor and zest to any red meat meal. Or perhaps try our Merlot. Aged in French oak for two year, this wine won a silver medal from Tasters Guild.
When it comes to white wines, you can't go wrong with Chardonnay. This one isn't aged in oak, which means it's bringing you the true flavors of the chardonnay grape. Serve it chilled and pair it with any sort of fish. Perhaps a fresh catch from Lake Champlain or one of the surrounding rivers and ponds! Then don't forget our Pinot Grigio, which has a particularly nice bouquet and goes well with fish and white meat dishes.
The true stars of Charlotte Village Winery are the fruit wines. First, there's Buddy's Apple Crisp. A true local Vermont apple wine, this blends 4 different variety of apples from Champlain Orchards in Shoreham, VT with a touch of cinnamon. Serve it warm to get a taste of apple pie or chilled to get a real apple crisp. It's no surprise that this is a double gold medal winner. It tastes like fall in a glass! If you want more local Vermont fruit wines, try the Peach Blossom or the Strawberry Blush, which is blended with 40% Riesling. It has a soft strawberry nose with a slight tart finish. It's a great one to sip on the deck or porch.
Our Blueberry wines set us apart from other Burlington and Shelburne wineries. We have three different blueberry wines, all made fresh from the blueberries that surround our winery. We have a range from dry to sweet, starting with Midnight Blue Dry Reserve. It's a dry, full-bodied red wine with spicy overtones. Aged in American Oak for a full year, try it with red meat. Then we have the well-rounded Country Blue semi-dry. It's not overly sweet, but still has a smooth blueberry flavor. It's aged in American Oak for slightly less than the Midnight Blue, and pairs well with scallops. Last, our Moonlight Blue is a must-try. It has enough sweetness to be a desert wine, and is amazing with cheesecake. Make sure you get this one before it runs out.
