Harford Vineyard & WineryThe vineyards were started with the idea of becoming a commercial grower. In 2005 they sold grapes and juice. However the owners discovered that it was more feasible to produce wine. The three acres of vineyards were planted in 2003. High density planting was used in the vineyards. The varieties include Merlot, Vidal and Traminette.

In 2009 they began selling wines under their own name, Harford Vineyard & Winery.
