Our open air tasting room has closed for the season. Thanks to all of the wonderful musicians and tasting room visitors who made this season so memorable.  Special thanks to our intrepid staff, who worked through rain, sleet, dark of night, heatwaves, cold snaps, and various challenges from the mud of "spring" to the fruit flies of harvest.

We will repopen April 16 for the 2020.  Through the winter  (I accidentally typed wineter, which would be a good way to deal with it) you can purchase wine by calling 567-302-0476 or emailing info@flyingotter.com for an appointment to pick up at the winery.

Our family operated vineyard and winery is the culmination of a life long love of wine. It has been said that wine is sunshine in a bottle. We agree with that sentiment and also firmly believe that the sunshine is meant to be enjoyed with friends and family while sharing good times and good food.

We stay focused on the basics - sustainable vineyard practices using a great deal of hand labor, starting with the planting of the vine until we harvest the grapes. This hands on approach and attention to detail allows us to produce the best quality grapes that can be locally grown, because you can't make great wine unless you start with great grapes. We have selected cold climate hybrid wine grapes that have been developed not only to survive our sometimes harsh climatic conditions but to actually thrive in our particular terroir and produce some wonderful, unique tasting wines.

The objective of our winery is to provide a friendly, unintimidating wine experience. Whether you are a wine expert looking for something new and different, or a wine novice just entering the wonderful world of wine, we welcome you to our website. We hope that you enjoy our wine and your wine experience.
