Wide River Winery

Wide River Winery Dorothy O’Brien began growing grapes and making wine for her family in 1997. Family members made this winery go and grow. Dorothy’s daughters, Ann Pelton and Liz Quinn, and her sisters, Martha O’Brien and Ceil O’Brien, focus on sales, marketing and the business side of the winery. Inspiration for many of the wine names come from the family’s law heritage. Dorothy is an employment law attorney and her husband, Charlie Pelton, is a retired Clinton County judge. Lots of other lawyer family members have been known to sample wine as part of the never ending quest for top quality wine. Wide River Winery is our way of adding value to the area and sharing wine made from the goodness of the earth. We hope to see you soon!
