WindRoc Vineyard is one of New Hampshire's newest farm wineries situated on a 36 acre farmstead located in Newfields, NH. The house was built in 1794 by Isaac Jenness. During Jenness' ownership, the property served as a farm and an inn. Family ownership continued until 1875, after which successive owners lived here. In the 1950's, the Bechtold/Bryne family purchased the property. As the story goes, the farm was all fields and very windy. With the over abundance of granite rocks everyplace you dig, the family fondly referred to the farm as "WindRoc Farm". In keeping with the history, we kept the name "WindRoc."
The Winery is owned and operated by the Hillard family and guided by Jerry Hillard, owner and winemaker, who leads the ship. His crew consists of his lovely wife Stacey Hillard who enjoys an occasional sip when he's not looking, and their gregarious and charming little man, Gavin. Jerry learned his craft by doing and after completely renovating this entire homestead, he converted the old barn into a beautiful working winery. Now fully licensed and able to conduct tastings and wine sales, we are eager to introduce you to our wonderful craft wines.
WindRoc makes a terrific and wide variety of wines to cover the full spectrum of tastes and flavors. Fruit wines (Pear, Apple, Blueberry, Blackberry, and Strawberry) and traditional European style grape wines (Pinot Grigio, Zinfandel, Chardonnay) and even a Port style wine all range from bold to soft, sweet to dry. We have the spectrum covered and, of course, we encourage sampling before you buy!
The winery is located at 286 Piscassic Road in Newfields, NH tucked between Epping and Newfields along Route 87 (Piscassic Road.)
