AT SPYGLASS RIDGE WINERY
Where it all begins
Our 75 acre farm, which includes 15 acres of estate owned vineyards, are the foundation for our winery. Fundamentally, we understand that great wines begin in the vineyard. This philosophy is an ideal marriage for winemakers Tom Webb and Dana Walter, as they spend most of their time in the vineyard. Each harvest we can be found
walking vineyards, row by row, to ensure that the grapes are ripening perfectly. Our meticulous approach to
vineyard management allows us to use the highest quality grapes for our wines.
After all, a wine can only
be as good as the fruit in the vineyard. If the fruit is bad there’s a pretty good chance the wine won’t
be very good either. Utilizing careful viticultural practices and maintaining long term relationships
with growers all contribute to producing our exceptional wines.
Appellations & Terroir
Our vineyard’s microclimate forms the cornerstone of our winemaking philosophy.
The rolling hills of the central Susquehanna Valley provide a number of ideal growing conditions which help mold our wines and make them unique from any other wines in the world. Our family owned vineyard is a 15 acre planting of Cabernet Franc, Chamboucin, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Seyval Blanc, Vignoles and Vidal Blanc. Any other fruit that we use is sourced from local growers.
