THE FLAG HILL STORY

NH'S OLDEST WINERY, LARGEST VINEYARD, AND OLDEST DISTILLERY, 

Flag Hill sits on a 110-acre conservation easement which preserves the property to remain in agriculture forever. The farm switched from a dairy farm to a vineyard in 1987 with the planting of the first grapes on the property, and the winery began in 1990 with our first harvest.  Years later in 2004 Flag Hill Distillery began making vodka from the highest quality apples New Hampshire has to offer.

Today, the farm is owned by Distiller Brian Ferguson, and his wife Maddie Ferguson, and is used to produce grapes for the winery, grain for the distillery, and vegetables for our events. The grounds truly showcase the bounty New Hampshire has to offer.

Our goals not to make great wine and whiskey for New Hampshire.  Our mission is to make great wine and whiskey, period.  We know that putting Flag Hill on the global map is an uphill climb, but we believe we can plant that flag atop the hill.  New Hampshire can grow and make world-class wine and whiskey.

Everything at Flag Hill is rooted in quality. We don’t do things just for traditions sake & we don’t forfeit traditions just to be recklessly innovative. Every decision is made by a simple question: 

Will this make it better?

Come see what we can do and get a glimpse at where we are now and where we are going.
