Autumn Hill Vineyards

Autumn Hill Vineyards Ed and Avra Schwab, along with their three children, began planting the vineyards in 1979. Today we have 13 acres planted of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Viognier grapes. In 1986 the original winery produced 300 cases of Chardonnay and Riesling. As the vineyard matured, our production soon outgrew the start up winery and in 1989 our present modern winery was constructed.

  Cabernet Franc
A medium bodied wine showing varietal flavor, fresh fruit, modest cherry aromas. Soft supple tannins accompany the long smooth finish.
  Cabernet Sauvignon
A deep ruby Bordeaux style red wine with hints of cassis and spice. Blended with Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the wine's generous tannins will soften with aging.
A fresh, flavorful dry white wine bottled in a chablis style (non oaked). This wine is light and delicate on the palate and has a refreshing finish.
  Chardonnay Vintners Reserve
Selected from the best lots of barrel fermented Chardonnay. French oak predominates and enhances the flavors while seductive melon and vanilla aromas stand out.
  Horizon Rouge Non Vintage-8th Edition
Our version of the quintessential Bordeaux style red wine. Bottled unfiltered after a careful blending of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.
The ripe aromas and medium body show Merlot varietal characteristics of plum and black cherry. A small percent of Cabernet Sauvignon is blended to enhance its structure and flavor.
  Petit Verdot/Merlot
Petit Verdot is one of Bordeaux"s classic red wine grapes. Deep ruby in color and long lived this is a wine to be savored. Combing 50% Petit Verdot with 50% Merlot produces a wine with great depth and concentration.
A delightful white wine styled after its Rhone origins. A medley of floral and fruit aromas with a hint of sweetness on the finish.
  White Cabernet Sauvignon
The light pink color and subtle fruit flavors add to the delightful enjoyment of the Blush style, slightly sweet wine made from the Cabernet grapes.
