Unique Features

The WineryHoly-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.
