handcrafted wines from our own vineyard

Located in southwestern New Hampshire, our vines grow in clay and gravel laid down by Lake Hitchcock that existed over ten thousand years ago. The farm was built in the early 1800's, an antique barn houses the winery.

We have chosen varietals that grow with vigor in these ancient soils: Frontenac, Seyval, LaCrosse, St. Croix, Frontenac Gris, Marquette, Foch, Noiret, and La Crescent. The distinct character of each is preserved through careful hand harvesting and attentive fermentation.

All Poocham Hill Winery wines are made from our own grapes. And what grapes do we grow? You might expect to hear something familiar like Chardonnay or Cabernet, but we'd like to introduce you to the cold hearty varietals we grow. Our goal from the start has been to make the best wine from the best grapes that will grow in our microclimate.

When you taste our wine, you might find similarities with familiar varieties you enjoy, but each of our wines is unique. We invite you to come and taste them. Each is an experience into itself.

 

“Our tasting room is both relaxing and inviting and you are sure to have a great time.” — Steve Robbins

THE REDS

FRONTENAC

2012 FRONTENAC

2015 Frontenac's deep garnet color complements its distinctive cherry aroma and inviting palate of blackberry, black currant, and plum. This wine is has a full body and wonderful spiciness from the American oak it has been aged with. Frontenac pairs well with hearty foods such as beef, lamb, pasta dishes, and barbecue. The 2014 vintage is also available in limited qualities.

 

St. CROIX

2012 ST. CROIX

2015 St. Croix is a light-bodied, deep-red dry wine with soft tannins and aromas of blackberry, currant, violet, and spice. It is perfect with light meals, pasta, pizza, chicken, or salmon. St. Croix is also great with appetizers and soft cheeses. Other vintages of St. Croix available.

 

MARECHAL FOCH

MARECHAL FOCH

2015 Marechal Foch produces a medium bodied wine with a pleasant ruby color. This French varietal grape was originally grown in the Alsace region and is reminiscent of the Burgandian style wines with dark berry characteristics. Other vintages are available.


MARQUETTE

MARQUETTE

2015 Marquette is a medium bodied red wine with an attractive deep red color. It has aromas of cherry, black current and berries with a finish of spice and black pepper. This wine pairs well with pasta dishes in addition to chicken and lamb. The 2014 and 2015 vintages are aged with French oak, while the 2013 vintage is un-oaked with only a few bottles left.


MARQUETTE ROSé

marquette rose

2015 Marquette Rosé is an off-dry Rosé from our Marquette vines which exhibits a wonderful red berry aroma, a complex palate, and long finish. A great summertime wine to be enjoyed with light meals or completely on its own.

 

 


Wolf Pine RED

wolf-pine-red-2015-red-wine

2015 Wolf Pine Red is a blend of Frontenac and Noiret and is an excellent full-bodied wine. Noiret, with its fine tannin structure, distinct black pepper character, and notes of raspberry and blackberry, fully complements the classic black cherry flavors of Frontenac. This wine sells out quickly and there are only a few bottles of the 2014 vintage available.


THE WHITES

2015 Happy Camper is an off-dry white wine of Seyval Blanc and LaCrosse with subtle aromas of citrus and pear. This is a fun wine whether you have just hiked a trail with a view or are sitting around a campfire with good friends. 2015 is the first vintage of this wine and we are sure it will be a big hit.


La Crescent

la-crescent-2014-white-wine

2015 La Crescent has an intense aromatic nose of apricot, peach and citrus resembling  Moscato. We produce La Crescent as a dry white wine. It is fruity and crisp while not being overwhelming. Serve chilled as an aperitif or with local cheeses.


Lacrosse

2014 LaCrosse is a full-bodied white wine with the aromas of pear and apricot and a slightly muscat finish. LaCrosse pairs well with seasoned chicken and seafood. 


FRONTENAC GRIS

frontenac-gris-white-wine

2015 Frontenac Gris is a wonderful amber-colored wine, presents enticing aromas of citrus and tropical fruit. Its brilliant balance of fruit and acidity creates a lively, refreshing wine. It pairs well with Asian cuisine, lobster and other shellfish, as well as spicy food.
