Boyden Valley Winery & Spirits is celebrating our 20 Year Anniversary in 2017! We see this as an important milestone not only for our winery, but also for Vermont’s wine industry as one of the very first licensed wineries in Vermont. Our dedicated approach to crafting high quality wines, ciders, and spirits using locally grown fruit helps to support local Vermont farmers and sustainable practices within the industry. We appreciate all of our loyal customers who have supported us over the past 20 years and have proven to us that they care about supporting local business and drinking local products that maintain the same high quality standard found throughout Vermont in the thriving local food and beverage industry.

This focus on celebrating Vermont’s outstanding agriculture inspired us to start crafting a robust red wine called Marquette Reserve. Fermented from 100% Vermont-grown Marquette grapes and aging in Hungarian Oak and French Oak barrels for over two years, we are pleased to release this limited batch red wine. Robust with rich flavors of dark plum, red berries, and soft undertones of chocolate and vanilla, this wine is truly something special.

We invite you to visit the winery during Memorial Day weekend, May 27th & 28th from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm to celebrate our achievements and enjoy this fantastic new wine.
• Free samples of the new Marquette Reserve
• Discounts on cases and half cases
• Enjoy the new Marquette Reserve by the glass with our Gourmet Cheese Board or Vermont Chocolate Tasting Board while it lasts!
• Free to attend all weekend long
• Extended hours to 6:00 pm both days

Come and celebrate 20 fantastic years and enjoy the fruits of our labor. Reserve your case or half case of Marquette Reserve in advance by giving us a call at 802-644-8151. Limited edition Double Magnum size of Big Barn Red, our best seller, will also be available while they last. Only 15 Bottles available!
