Reflecting on our past

Every bottle tells a story


We believe in cultivating an experience. Telling a story with our wine that encompasses the spirit of the vineyard, the history of our land, and the careful attention of the winemaker’s hand.


Ed and Mary Hamel purchase the Sankey Farm future home of Glendale Ridge Vineyard and begin the dream of preserving the land through an active farming project.


The first grapes are planted in the West Block. We begin with a trial vineyard with rows of Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and more.


Our second planting, an acre of Cabernet Franc is planted across the street, just below the West Block.


Our most recent planting is the Nonotuck Block, three acres named for our favorite peak that our vineyards overlook. The block is split equally with Vidal Blanc, Traminette and Corot Noir.


Glendale Ridge Vineyard is a place to celebrate life with family. Our grandson, Max, shares in our harvest.


The Glendale Ridge brand is born to celebrate our connection with the land, the vines, the ridge and the moon.
