Brook Farm Vineyards Tasting Room Opens

When: January 11 (Wednesday), 1-9 pm

Where: Hammond Hall 116 Block, Main Street, Ludlow, VT

Description:  Located off of Twenty Mile Stream Rd, in what is also known as the Bates Mansion, Brook Farm Vineyards (BFV) in Proctorsville  now has a year round tasting room at Hammond Hall, 114 Main St., Ludlow. The Tasting Room is on the end next to Huntley’s Financial Services.

Inspired by the Georgian Revival Mansion on the property, the design of the tasting room is Gustavian Swedish, with muted gray tones. However, with the lush antique style tin ceiling, the mirrors on the wall, and the long space, it also reminds one of Harry’s in Paris.

The Tasting Room hours are as follows:

• 1-9 on Wednesday and Thursday

• 12-9 on Friday and Saturday

• 12-7 on Sundays.

In addition to the wine tasting, you can also enjoy their cheese and charcuterie plate, an abundant plate full of delectable meats, cheeses, fruits, crackers and nuts. Coming soon, will be the chocolate charcuterie board.

The Tasting Room is also available for private parties as BFV does have a catering license. For more information, 802-226-7152, website,  Facebook

Congratulations and best of luck to Jen and Doug McBride on their newest business adventure.
