Vermont currently has seven commercial wineries, including three using their own grapes. At least a dozen vineyards are in various stages of development across the state.
The most recent phase of Vermonts wine industry began in 1985 with the licensing of North River Winery, the first commercial winery in the state for nearly 100 years. Apples still account for most of volume of fruit wine produced in Vermont, but with the development of new hardy grape varieties, the percent of grape wines is likely to increase in the future.
