T
he experience of pairing food and wine is the adventure of creation –  the creation of food to suit a beloved wine or the selection of a wine to dance with your favorite dish. Our team will help you find those perfect pairings which will allow you to enjoy the affinity between our farm fresh foods and the best wines that the Champlain Valley wine region and New York has to offer.

“The most unique and memorable part of the vacation though was the dining experience. The meals were incredible – delicious, abundant, healthy & local.”

A Taste of What’s to Come

Our carefully cultivated wine list is available to you throughout your time with us, so you can discover the producers and styles you love during your special moments at Rolling Hills Estate Winery.
