The Winery: Holy-Field Vineyard &
Winery is a small family owned winery with a limited production.
The 30-acre Holy-Field Estate includes a 14 acre vineyard planted with
Native American and French Hybrid Varieties. Emphasis is placed on
growing superior grapes from our own vineyard and this same care and
commitment is blended into each bottle of Holy-Field Wine. The
winery was started in 1994 by Les Meyer and his daughter, Michelle
Meyer. The Holy-Field name comes from the days when our 158th Street
address was called Holyfield Road. The winery offers a warm and
friendly atmosphere for our visitors to enjoy fine wines and specialty
gifts from our gift shop. Private tastings are available for parties
of 15 or more, please call for evening reservations. The Vineyard
Room and Wine Deck overlooking the vineyard are available for large
parties, receptions and meetings, please call for rates and
availability. We offer wheelchair accessibility. Walking
vineyard tours will be conducted on summer weekends by appointment
The Vines: The Holy-Field Vineyard is a breathtaking
picture of 10,500 vines located on 14 acres adjacent to the winery.
The first vines were planted in 1986 and we believe the vines thrive on
the attention and caring shadow of their owners.
The Wines: Great wines begin in the vineyard. The
carefully tended grapes are harvested by hand and pressed
immediately. Our wines are fermented, aged and bottled in the
cellars beneath our tasting room. Holy-Field Winery offers a
top quality selection of wines for all to appreciate.
The Gift Shop: The Holy-Field Winery is proud to
announce new custom-made wine-filled chocolates - Raspberry wine filled
milk chocolates and St. Francis Dessert wine filled dark chocolates.
We also have available custom made holiday gift baskets. Order
