Welcome to the home of Otter Valley Winery
Cottage # 15 nestled in the vineyard Nestled at the foot of the Green Mountains, Otter Valley Winery is going to officially open its doors on May 21, 2011. We are located on Route 7 in Brandon, half way between Rutland and Middlebury. Owned and operated by Stephen and Ursula Zahn, our almost 5 acre vineyard features variety of grapes: reds – Marquette, Frontenac, Frontenac Gris and St Croix and whites – LaCrescent and Frontenac Blanc. Farming grapes is both science and art, with gray areas of interpretation in each and our goal is to shepherd the fruit to its greatest expression using the tools of both. Combining meticulous winemaking practices and talent with a genuine love of the land and support for the Vermont wine community, Otter Valley Winery is capitalizing on the regionâ€™s potential to create world-class wines. Our goal is to make high quality wines that reflect the climate, soil and beauty of the state of Vermont.
We offer wine tastings and winemaker’s tours of our winery detailing each step of the wine making process. Stay and relax at Cozy Cottages . FREE wine tasting for Cozy Cottages’ guests.
We hope you enjoy our site and look forward to the chance to meet and clink glasses with you personally.
