Boyden Valley Winery was one of the first licensed wineries in Vermont. David and Linda Boyden were pioneers in the wine industry using newly cultivated winter-hardy hybrid grapes from Minnesota and planting their first vines in 1996. While they waited for the first grape harvest, they began to craft fruit wines and created some of their most iconic varieties including Boyden’s Cranberry Wine. Their fruit wine roots inspired many of the partnerships still maintained today with other local Vermont farms and foster a philosophy of sustainability on the farm. (This excerpt taken from the Boyden Valley Winery website)
