I am Kevin Clayton and this is my shop.
I have been involved in retail wines for over 30 years, and I bring that collective knowledge to the wines we offer here.
We support independent and family-run wineries from around the globe. Minimal intervention, low SO2, organic, biodynamic and sustainable farming are the hallmarks of many of the winemakers and importers we represent and support.
We do not have our wines listed online as we have over 1,200 wines in stock and access to over 10,000 through our distributors. We are happy to special order wines or help you find that special bottle for dinner or any occasion. Please call or email us for more information
We have been using Mr. Espresso since we opened for our espresso based drinks. We craft specialty espresso drinks to order.
Our drip coffees come from 802 Coffee and Brio, both local coffee roasters. Our scones, muffins, biscotti and other pastries are made daily by my sister, Lisa Clayton at High Meadows Bakery in North Ferrisburg.
We give back to coffee communities by supporting Food 4 Farmers and their work with Coffee Co-ops on food security issues in Latin America.
We are proud to be the Annex Gallery for Northern Daughters Fine Art.
You will find their curated shows in our Winemakers Gallery which can be accessed through our wine shop. We also have regular shows of local artists in our coffee area.
Northern Daughters is a contemporary art gallery located at 221 Main Street in Vergennes, Vermont. We strive to be a space that merges the aesthetic of blue chip galleries with the familiarity and authenticity of a Vermont general store.
