Biggest Apple Hill Snow in Years!

Apple hill in the snow

Every branch, every vine covered in winter beauty! Snow falls at most of our Apple Hill Grower farms once or twice a season but this February brought the most we’ve seen in years. It is quite a sight to see some of our favorite farms covered in a blanket of white.

Countryside Beauty

Our farms stretch across a wide swath of elevation with our lowest vineyard at about 2100ft to our highest ranch at nearly 4000ft so our weather can be quite changeable. This February brought a deep blanket of winter white across all of the farms.

Winter White in the Vineyards

The vines are dormant in February so no worry about damage from the snow. It is majestic to see the rows of white. Most of our wineries are open year round. Perfect for a snow angel and glass of wine. Always best to call ahead for weather and road conditions.

Buried in Snow

More than 2 feet of snow! The biggest snow total from just one of the February storms was at our highest ranch. Harris Tree Farm is just above 3700ft and typically sees snow several times each season.
