Hummingbird Hills Winery started out as one couple's dream of a simpler life. While living in northwestern New Jersey, Ken and Kimm Schick saw more and more properties around them being purchased and developed. To escape the noise and traffic, they bought an old dairy farm in upstate New York and set to work planting thousands of grapevines along its scenic acres. They even transformed the farm's old cow barn into a winery.
Today, the Schicks welcome guests to enjoy the peace and beauty of Hummingbird Hills. They frequently host outdoor events and tastings of their wines, which are made with grapes grown right on the farm and minimal preservatives. Along with flavorful red and white wines, visitors can sample varietals made with elderberries, dandelion, and other fruits and botanicals.
The winemaking process at Capoccia Vineyards & Winery is international in scope and thoroughly local in practice. The winery's owners draw on the rich tradition of their ancestors, who hail from Italy's grape-studded Lazio region. Instead of importing their fruits from far-flung locales, however, they only press New York grapes for their wines. The resulting vintages unite the best of the Old World and the New. The chardonnay, for instance, delights with notes of apricot and a buttery finish; the red Noiret, on the other hand, jolts palates awake with notes of pepper and distilled lightning bolts.
