COL, The Wine Bar(n) at Smugglers' Notch is our new Wine Tasting Facility located at the base of Smugglers' Notch. This winery is attached to The Barn at Smugglers' Notch and we have our line of wines, that have been well received, as well as an extensive wine list from around the world. We offer wine tastings, flights, by the glass and by the bottle. Also, be sure to check out one of our signature cocktails, The Smugglers' Notch Spritz, made with our own Prosecco.
We will also offer dining cuisine as prepared by Co-Owner, Jennifer DePalma, who comes to Vermont after her recent success in the kitchen of Il Pozzeto in Tuscany, Italy. Jennifer, who is a foodie at heart, has been clasically trained in Florence, Italy. Jennifer believes in using local product and will partner with local farms to bring a true farm-to-table sensibility to our kitchen at COL, The Wine Bar(n). One of our specialties offered daily will be local Vermont Cheese plates and Charcuterie.
Owner, Steve DePalma, has studied wine through the Court of Master Sommeliers and Wine & Spirit Education Trust and has traveled extensively throughout the wine regions of Italy and France. We are excited to bring an extensive fine wine program to the area.
COL, The Wine Bar(n) at Smugglers' Notch is influenced by our local enotecas when we lived in Tuscany. In the spirit of a true enoteca, we will also have a wine shop where customers can purchase wine to go and local products. An enoteca is the Italian word for a wine tasting facility. Or as we like to call ours, The Wine Bar(n).
In addition to wine, we offer a full service bar offering signature cocktails, local brews and local spirits.
With our incredible panoramic views of Smugglers' Notch, Mount Mansfield and the Green Mountains, The Enoteca will be an most memorable place to enjoy a glass of wine, signature cocktail and some local fare.
COL - The lowest point of a ridge connecting two mountain peaks. syn: notch, pass.
"Col" is used through the Alps to name mountain passes. To those participating in the mountain cultures of cycling, skiing, hiking, climbing or trekking, there is a magical aura that surrounds some of the famous Cols of Alps. We feel blessed to call home this community that is steeped in it's own history of mountain culture, here at the base of Vermont's most famous Col, Smugglers' Notch.
