From maquamwine.com:

After 100 years and five generations, the family is legally producing wine in St. Albans, Vermont made with syrup from Fairfield, Vermont.

Located on 10 acres, at St. Albans Bay Vermont, this land has been in the Brook’s family since the 1600’s and is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. There is a mound of rock located on the land that contains chert, which the pre-historic Indians used to make their tools. Chert is a fine-grained silica-rich, sedimentary rock that may contain small fossils. The Paleo Indians used the chert for their stone tools and fire starting kits. Chert originating from our location has been found as far away as the Dakotas and Nova Scotia. This fossil rich piece of land is one of only a few sites of its type in North America.

Around seven acres is being dedicated to the production of fruit wines. The berries are grown along Maquam, St. Albans, and Lapans Bays along the shore of Lake Champlain, where the still water affords one of the longest growing seasons in the North East. The primary fruits grown on the property are blackcurrants and Haskap berries.


Maquam Pear Wine -

This award winning pear wine is fruit forward and highly aromatic with lingering tropical undertones. The pear continues on the palate with an exceptionally smooth and lingering finish. Its beautiful light golden color and layered, balanced body makes it a perfect appetizer wine to enjoy with friends.

Our pear wine matches perfectly with picnic fair, salads & sandwiches, Asian cuisine, fruity desserts, grilled chicken and mild cheeses (brie, Gouda etc.). It is also excellent on its own or as a spritzer. Serve chilled!


Maquam Black Currant Wine –

This full bodied award winning black currant wine is hugely aromatic and complex. This garnet hued beauty opens with notes of ripe wild berries and rich oak. Made with 100% estate grown fruit in the Green Mountains of Vermont and locally sourced Vermont Grade A maple syrup, this will be sure to please any discerning pallet. The ten months of French oak barrel aging adds layers of silky vanilla and caramel undertones.

Dry, yet silky and soft, pair it with a variety of foods including strong cheeses, game meat, pork & chicken, festive meals and even some light curries. Also, pairs well with light desserts.
The round jammy flavors of our black currant wine can be enjoyed on its own or as a spritzer. Serve chilled!


Maquam Blueberry and Pure Vermont Maple Syrup Wine –

This fragrant and well-structured blueberry and pure VT maple syrup wine was aged six months in oak barrels and made with Vermont pure maple syrup. It is off-dry, yet fresh tasting. It has notes of berries, vanilla and maple. Pair with any cheese, cream based dishes, white meats or enjoy it on its own or as a spritzer. Serve slightly chilled!


La garagista | Loups~Garoux | Vermont Red Wine by Deirde Heekin | 2016

La garagista | Loups~Garoux | 2016 | 12% alc./vol | $33.99/750ml

We are most delighted to announce the arrival of the 2016 La garagista Loups~Garoux.  A stunning Vermont red wine by our friends Deirde Heekin & crew over in Barnard we again are able to loving share with you.

From the bottle:

La garagista: n. one who makes wine in a garage; one who works in a garage; one who uses all parts of a garage.

Loups~Garoux

Vermont Rouge = Red Wine

Loups~Garoux is the French name for mythical wolf creatures that are not cursed, but blessed.  One is born a Loup-Garou and can turn at will. They are elegant, dark wolves to behold and remind us of other mythical creatures like those in the legends of the Black Wolves of the Chateauguay, the wild alpine terrain that defines our homefarm and vineyard landscapes.  Loups~Garoux speak of the woodland and are mercurial in nature.  Hand-harvested and unfiltered, this red wine hails from our alpine vineyard in Vermont on the edge of a lake, grown among wild purple aster and white fleabane.

La garagista | Vinu Jancu | Vermont La Crescent | $36.99

La garagista | Vinu Jancu | Vermont La Crescent | 12,5 alc./vol. | $36.99 / 750ml

It is our great pleasure to announce the latest release of craveable wine from La garagista…  Vinu Jancu.

From the vino vessel:

La garagista:  n.  one who makes wine in a garage; one who works in a garage; one who uses all parts of a garage.

Vinu Jancu

Vinu Jancu is an old Sicilian name for white wines made in an orange wine manner.  This style has a deep nobility with a long history in the Eurasian production areas of Armenia & Georgia, but also found in Italy, Sicily, and other alpine areas of Europe.  The white wine grapes are treated like red grapes: the juice ferments on the grape skins and remain sur lie long afterward, taking on more color (hence the orange), tannin, texture, and aromatics.

This Vinu Jancu is made from La Crescent, a descendant of Muscat de Hambourg, and grown on the hills and valleys of Vermont.  Hand-picked and hand-sorted, this honest, unfiltered wine was crushed traditionally and fermented on native yeast at our cantina, and remained sur lie for the winter in glass demijohns.
