Did you know that the Boyden Valley Winery and Spirits, located in Cambridge, VT was recently the recipient of the UVM Grossman School of Business Award for Outstanding Multi-Generational U.S. Based Family Enterprise? The Grossman School of Business honored four family businesses for excellence in the areas of entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainability at the UVM Family Business Awards last month, on Oct. 30 in Waterman’s Memorial Lounge. Boyden Valley Winery & Spirits is celebrating their 20 year anniversary next year and look forward to continuing their partnership with local fruit producers that support sustainable practices and provide them with exceptional Vermont fruits to craft high-quality wines, ciders, and spirits.
All of Boyden Valley’s wines are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to produce elegant, lively whites, and medium bodied reds full with character. Aged in time-honored French Oak casks their cellars yield mature, European-style wines. Have you sampled their delicious ‘Glogg’? Glogg is a mulled spice wine that is great served warm in a mug with dried fruits and almonds, or, even better, with any kind of pumpkin desserts or pecan pie. Be sure to try the Vermont Ice Cider. It’s made using only Vermont grown Northern Spy, Macintosh, and Empire apples to create a truly extraordinary cider. Aged in French oak barrels the final product is a sweet, but complex combination concentrated apple flavors and light, toasted oak that pair perfectly with a number of desserts.
