Southbrook’s harmonious relationship to the land is passionately revealed through every aspect of our operations, and in the quality of our wines. Our LEED® Gold-certified hospitality building celebrates the vines that surround it. But the full expression of Southbrook’s philosophy is our biodynamic, organic vineyard and winery. From these, Southbrook produces fine age-worthy wines, most notably Cabernet Sauvignon, classic Bordeaux blends and Chardonnays.
Southbrook is the winner of 24 wine awards in 2011 including a Lieutenant Governor's Award for the 2009 Triomphe Chardonnay and a top 5 finalist for Winery of the Year from the Intervin Wine Awards.

One of our highly trained Wine Lovers will tour you through our state of the art, LEED Gold Certified Hospitality Pavilion while you learn the story of our award-winning winery. We can’t wait to tell you why we decided on a wall in the vineyard, and how our industry-renowned Framboise came to be!

11 am: “A Southbrook Structured Tasting” (Public Tour)
Everybody has been to a restaurant, ordered a nice bottle of wine, and then had a snobby server pour 1oz into their glass to inspect. This server is expecting you to take a few steps before you blindly accept that bottle of wine. Instead of panicking next time this happens, be prepared with the proper steps.
The knowledgeable staff at Southbrook will walk you through the proper steps of a structured tasting in a fun and informative environment that will help get anyone started on their way to becoming a master sommelier…or at least impressing their friends. Tasting and enjoying wine doesn’t have to be an arduous task, come let Southbrook teach you.
