The Bostwick Family has been involved in the grape and wine industry for over 150 years. Harvey Hall purchased the original 100 acre fruit farm back in 1805.
There he and grew an assortment of fruits including grapes.

His daughter, Attila Hall, married D.C. Bostwick. He was a farmer and builder who construct bridges in the late 1880's. D.C.'s great love of wine inspirited him to found the Great Lakes Wine Company. With the onset of prohibition, this and the other wineries in our area were closed.

In 1910, his son, George Bostwick, married Gertrude McCord and continued the family tradition of farming.

George and Gertrude had two children, Kenneth and Catherine. Kenneth Bostwick, following in his father's footsteps, inherited the farm in 1946. Using the advanced techniques of farming that he learned while studying at Rutgers University for his masters in Agricultural Engineering, he took the farm in a new direction by converting the farm for grape production. Prior to this, there were mainly fruit trees and very few grapes.

In addition to this, he later became a professor at
Rutgers where he taught Agricultural Engineering.
Kenneth married Julia Nemeth and had four boys,
George, William, Michael and Robert.

Today, Matthew and Joshua Bostwick manage the winery. In addition to the winery, Matthew took over tending his
grandmother, Julia's vineyards in 1999. He is currently looking forward to planting many new varieties worthy of wine production.

Currently, much of the farm is Concord grapes which can be used for wine, but are a common and popular juice grape.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
