Poocham Hill Winery's vineyards have expanded over the last 18 years to 1,700 vines on five acres. Over the years we have settled on nine varieties of hybrid wine grapes, four whites and five reds, that grow and mature well in our southwestern New Hampshire location on the hills above the Connecticut River. Yes, it is all about the grapes. Our intent is to produce the best possible wine from the cold climate wine grapes we grow. Each of our wines has a distinct character created and preserved through careful growing, hand harvesting and attentive fermentation.
Our winery and tasting room are located in our 1830 vintage barn on our 154 acre farm. We are well off the beaten path, on a dirt road with views of Vermont. We invite visitors to come explore our vineyards and taste our wines. You might find similarities with familiar varieties you enjoy, but each of our wines is unique. We think you will be pleasantly surprised with their complexity and flavors.
We hope you will find the time to come visit during the River Valley Wine and Art Tour. We are sure you won’t be disappointed.

The Summit Winery sits on 80 acres in the town of Westmoreland, NH which is located just five (5) miles outside of Keene, NH. On February 12, 1752 John Chamberlain, one of the original grantees of the town of Westmoreland, drew “Lot No. 3, 5th range 2nd division and named it the Summit. John Chamberlain later joined the continental army and fought at the battle of Valley Forge. He did survive the harsh winter of 1777 and returned to Westmoreland and resumed farming. The original foundation of the farmhouse (circa 1800) can still be seen at the bottom of the vineyard. In the mid 1960’s, Niles and Katherine Aldrich disassembled an 1856 tobacco barn located in Walpole, NH and reassembled here on the current site.
This once tobacco barn, turned gift barn was then transformed into a one of Westmoreland’s favorite restaurants and is now one of New England’s top Wineries to visit. The Summit Winery hosts grape varietals sourced from the US and around the world and soon its own vineyard. Darren and Judy Horn have been making great wines for many years. Many thanks to all family, friends, and the good people of Westmoreland for all of their encouragement in allowing us to share our wines at a professional level.
Come enjoy wine tastings and take in a one-of-a-kind view. Wine tastings and tours are offered each weekend for the real wine enthusiast.
