The winery was established in 1857 by Emile Baxter and continues in the family.
Baxter's Vineyards/Winery tasting room is located in the same building as the winery itself.  When you enter the winery your senses come alive to many wonderful smells.
The first room after the tasting room is the kitchen, which serves many purposes. First and foremost this is the baking area for Carol's Pies. Carol spends many hours here making her wonderful homemade pies. This room is also used for feeding the Baxter's Vineyards "crew".
The next is the fermenting room, which is still used in September and October during harvest season. Our grapes are picked by hand with the help of eight to ten pickers. When the grapes are brought in, they are poured through the de-stemmer/crusher to split the skins, which hastens the juicing process. The juice is then pumped into the stainless steel vats.  After the primary fermentation is completed, the juice is drawn from the bottom of the vat, leaving the skins and seeds in the fermentation vat.  These skins and seeds are then scooped out of the vat and into the grape press.  This juice is then filtered and placed in the aging casks.
The next room is the former aging room. The secondary fermentation took place in this room.
The final stage of the wine making process is done in the winery cellar. Once the bottles are full, they are taken off and either capped and sealed, or corked and sealed depending on the type of wine being bottled. Labels are applied by hand to each bottle.
The shop has a wide variety of food and gift items to choose from. Our products:
