About Cold Country Vines & Wines

Jay and Kay, have begun planting different varieties of cold-hardy grapes in their vineyard; land that is located on the edge of the East Twin River Valley, making it ideal for grape growing – with airflow that moves the cold frost of the spring and fall out of the vineyard.

Jay and Kay opened Cold Country Vines & Wines in May 2014. Production began at harvest time in 2013 and Cold Country’s first release of its special wines debuted in May 2014.
