Over the past ten years the Troutmans have experimented with many varieties of wine grapes in the vineyard. Some varieties have proven more adapted to the location than others. Years of experience have demonstrated that high quality wine grapes can be consistently produced in Wayne County. Here is some of what we grow....
Since 1998 we have cultivated our vines with the aim of producing high quality locally produced wine. Our first three wines were released in 2001, and our selection has gradually grown as our vineyards expand and we find new sources of high quality fruit.
In the fall of 1907 the Troutmans gathered with their neighbors to harvest potatoes, pausing long enough to take a photograph. Over one hundred years later the horses are gone, and now we gather each fall to harvest acres of grapes.
Farmer’s White is made entirely from Ohio-grown Vidal Blanc grapes. Aromatic and fruity, this semi-sweet white wine is a perfect match with soft cheeses or an apple pie.
