About Us

Over 450 wines are arranged by geography, so a trip into Windham Wines in Brattleboro, Vermont often feels like a mini-vacation. You pick up that bottle from Tuscany and let the taste evoke memories of a trip there. You can pick up a bottle of Champagne or bubbly, open it with friends and celebrate those relationships. You can experiment with a bottle made from grapes that are new to you and perhaps discover a new favorite.

Owners Frank Larkin and Marty Ramsburg enjoy talking with customers, listening to your travel stories or helping you select a wine to pair with dinner. When you come into the shop, we hope that you feel that you’ve made some new friends, that you’ve had one of those moments that people who fall in love with Vermont like to talk about.

That’s why people come here. It’s the reason to get off the Interstate at Exit 3, then head one-quarter of a mile south on Route 5. It’s an experience you can’t get in the grocery store. It’s a conversation that brightened your day and the personal touch that we all still need in a high-tech world.

  1. Please let us know about upcoming tastings and new arrivals as we travel past Brattleboro at least once a month.

  2. Dear Rich and Buffy,

    My apologies for just seeing this now. As you can surmise from that, I am not tech savvy. We have three tastings scheduled for the next month+. Today we have an informal, walk-around tasting with our neighbors, North End Butchers and Jasmine’s Bakery. The theme is artisanal,independently-owned producers. We will be pouring 5 wines (2 whites/1 rosé/2 reds); Jason MacArthur from Whetstone Ciderworks in Marlboro will pour his ciders, and we have beer as well– 2 from Cambridge Brewing and 2 from Mystic (CT). This is an informal, walk-around tasting from 2:00-5:00; there is no charge and no reservations are necessary.
    On Saturday, May 11th, we will be showing new vintage Austria wines. Winthrop Pennock, of Artisanal Cellars. That is a sit-down, guided tasting that begins at 5:30. There are light food pairings from North End Butchers. The tasting fee is $25 per person and reservations are needed. We are currently about 2/3 full for that one.
    We will have a tasting on Saturday, May 25th, at 5:30, but I have not yet decided what we will be tasting.
    On Saturday, June 8th, we will do our annual rosé tasting. 5:30, reservations needed and again, food from North End Butchers and a $25 tasting fee.
