We hope that you are all well. We think of you daily, and miss our conversations with you. Over the past two and a half weeks that we have been closed, we have done lots of reading (I can strongly recommend Frederic Van de Water’s Reluctant Republic: Vermont, 1724-1791, an entertaining account of Vermont’s struggle […]
As the news from here gets grimmer, and the news from Italy just heart-breakingly tragic, we have decided that if there is any chance that we are transmitting one COVID-19 cell to any of you, it is not worth it. For now, Windham Wines is closed.
Bearing in mind that Social Distancing – or even Social Isolation – is upon us, Windham Wines is focused on helping our clients maintain quality of life. We know that many of you will be immersed in family time, including cooking and dining. To that end, we’re introducing curbside pickup. We offer to collect cases/half-cases/bottles for you via phone or email orders that you can drive by to pick up as we deliver to your car in our parking lot.

But, you don’t have to take our word for it– come by on […]
We had a wonderful celebration of the end of January with our organic-biodynamic-natural wines tasting on February 1st at New England House. The images above capture some of that fun. For those looking for a lively, beautiful sparkling to share with your valentine, we can recommend the Cerra la Barca, Vegas Altas, Petillant Natural, which […]
We love Eric Asimov’s idea of identifying 20 seasonal, affordable wines. We have followed his lead in creating a similar list filled with wines that we know are available in Vermont and that we know can be priced to stay under that $20 ceiling.
We have conceded Dry January, offering no tastings to help you achieve success with your resolutions but, . . . February begins with a tasting that is good for you– organic, biodynamic and natural wines. We celebrate the end of January, kicking off the new year’s events with a walk-around tasting of 25+ wines under […]
In anticipation of our two February tastings, we will feature a wine from each. Ladeiras do Xil Gaba do Xil, Godello Valdeorras, 2018 $19.99 organic Customers who have walked the Camino de Santiago may have ended their walking days with a glass of Godello, a grape that originates from the banks of the Sil river […]
