What makes Maple Moon so unique?
America's First Maple Winery!
This confuses some people, so here is a brief explanation...
Maple Moon ferments the sugars in the maple syrup instead of fermenting the sugars found in grapes or other fruits. The base wine is DRY (with zero residual sugar). So their wines range from dry to sweet. What makes them sweet? Well.. they add more maple syrup (of course!) after fermentation. The six currently available are Early Spring Reserve, Maple Blackberry, Maple Blueberry, Maple Peach, Maple Gold, and Maple Royal.
They also have some traditionally fermented wines (Marquette, Petite Pearl, Rouge, Cherry and Blanc), for those not brave enough to try a maple wine. :) So... don't dismiss it from your list of wineries because you think it will be too sweet. You will be pleasantly surprised!
And bonus... there are two hard ciders (Maple Ginger and Bourbon Barrel Aged) and a non-alcoholic maple rootbeer for those with partners who don't particularly drink wine!

April 2019: Wonderful people, interesting and informative tour - highlight of our weekend. Great products!
September 2018: We went to this winery and another one as a last minute side trip because they were a few miles from each other. We walked into the Maple Moon winery 10 minutes before closing and was welcomed in to the tasting room by one of the owners. We were not rushed in anyway. We did the tasting and enjoyed the maple based wines very much. I talked shop with the owner as I am a wine maker too. We purchased a bottle of wine and plan to visit again when we are in the area. This is a wonderful boutique winery. The prices of the wine may seem steep compared to grape wines. when your dealing with $50 a gallon maple syrup as your base ingredient compared to a 5lb bag of sugar and 5lbs of grapes costing $8 the price per bottle is going to be higher. We did stop into the other winery and didn't stay long because it is just like any other grape wine winery with a limited selection of wines. Maple Moon Winery is well worth the experience and money spent.
January 2018: My husband and I visited you in October. The honey is the best. We bought some to bring home. I ordered a 2 pound jar before Christmas, and ordered two 2 pound jars just now. It really is the best we have ever had. Hope to visit, again, this year. God bless! Tim and Brenda
