Welcome to Nimble Hill Vineyard & Winery
We would like to share with you our history and our winemaking philosophy, and of course information about our wines. Nimble Hill opened in 2007 with a production of more than three thousand gallons of wine. We believe that winemaking begins in the vineyard. We take what nature has given us and turn it into the best possible product we can make. Winemaker Kevin Durland takes a minimalist approach to winemaking, letting the grapes and fermentation process take the wine where it wants to go. A cornerstone belief of ours is that winemaking is not a recipe but rather a series of decisions that involve analysis of the juice, must, and wine at every stage of its development.
Our wines include a variety aimed at pleasing the different tastes of our customers. We make an array of both white and red wines, at all sweetness levels from dry to sweet. The grapes for our wines are sourced from different areas of Pennsylvania including Mehoopany, Tunkhannock, Dushore, and West Chester. We also source some grapes from the North Fork of Long Island.
A Family Winery
The Winery is owned by Gary and Ellie Toczko and is the definition of a "family" winery. The Toczko’s have four children, daughter Mya, and triplets, Maggie, Haley (daughters), and Jacob (son). The family also includes Jillian, a golden retriever that likes to eat grape skins and help in the vineyard. Gary and Ellie opened the winery to have a business where they can work with and alongside their family, whether it be tending vines, crushing grapes, making wine, or minding the tasting room in Tunkhannock.
Please stop by our Tunkhannock tasting room to try our wines.
