How long does a grape vine last?

All these questions and more are answered on your tour of Flag Hill Winery & Distillery. Every weekend in the summer and as much as possible in the fall and winter, a guided walking tour of Flag Hill’s Vineyard, Winery and Distillery are offered to the public. Whether it’s the public tour or a private tour, whether you are a connoisseur or a novice, young or old, there’s always something new to learn and see at Flag Hill. These public guided walking tours are an optional part of visiting Flag Hill and do include a minimal charge. Wine and spirit tasting is conducted on a walk-in basis during all of our open hours to the public and is done at no charge.
