The Hutchins Farm came into the family on October 24, 1881. Through the generations the style of farming has gone through many changes, evolving from a full mixed Victorian farm to the current mix of cash crop and vineyard. The latest addition is the vineyard / craft winery. We love wines that are interesting, so we decided to see what farm would produce. In 2006 we took half an acre out behind the barn and planted a test plot vineyard. 28 rows of different varieties and rootstock; 25 vines each: Baco Noir, Cabernet Foch, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin, Chardonnay, Gamay Noir, Gewürztraminer, Geisenheim 318, Marechal Foch, Merlot, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Regent, Riesling, Syrah, and Zweigelt all became close friends. Some did well, some did poorly, some did too well (overly vigourous vines don’t make balance wine). But we made wine from all of it. Some good, some bad, some weird. After 5 years we started to get a sense of what varietals and rootstocks were suited to the site.
