Our Dining Philosophy: Inclusive

The culinary and wine experience is integral to each stay at Twin Farms. Which is why all of it — with few exceptions — is included in your stay.

Your rate at Twin Farms includes all meals, wine pairings, and spirits enjoyed in our public dining areas, indoors and out, or in your own cottage or suite. Alternatively, we’d be happy to put together a picnic by the pond, atop the Ski Hill, or anywhere else on the grounds. And we can pack a boxed lunch for you to take along on an activity.

Our exclusive reserve wine list supplements our exceptional wine program with a limited selection of world-renowned premium bottles, available at additional cost. We also offer special culinary experiences, such as a private dinner in the Wine Cellar or at our special Chef’s Table, that may incur surcharges.

An Ode to the Seasons

Our location in Vermont lets us source ingredients at the peak of their flavor. Butter and cheese from local dairies. Beef, chicken, and pork from nearby farms. Herbs, vegetables, and fruits that flourish in the warm Vermont sun. We supplement that bounty with produce fresh from our own gardens, syrup from our maples, and honey from our hives. The resulting dishes sing with the season — elevated by the creativity and technique of Chef Nathan Rich and his team.

To accompany lunch and dinner, Wine Director, Lead Sommelier Morgan LaCroix and her team pour from the distinctive selection of wines in our 15,000-bottle collection. The Twin Farms cellar ranges from well-known Californian and French estates to emerging vintners from across the globe. We look forward to captivating you with remarkable new flavors, and reuniting you with long-standing favorites.

Above all, we want you to feel at home at Twin Farms. We have no dress codes. You may be as social or as private as you wish. Our offerings change each day. And just as at home, you will never see a dinner menu. We encourage you to share your dietary preferences and restrictions with our culinary team in advance of your stay via our online concierge form. And allow us to take you on a culinary journey designed with your personal tastes in mind.

At Twin Farms, guests forgo menus, trusting the Chef to exceed their culinary expectations with specially curated meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The cuisine reflects the changing seasons, inspired by Vermont's finest produce, and Twin Farms' farm-grown herbs, fruits and vegetables.

The Twin Farms culinary team works closely with local farms such as Kiss The Cow Farms and Fable Farms, both located within a mile of the property. Breakfast begins with a daily smoothie, freshly squeezed juices from the on-site farm and endless options of house-cured meats and fresh baked goods from the kitchen. Set overlooking the Green Mountains, the Chef prepares a new multi-course lunch and dinner, carefully paired with wine from their 15,000-bottle wine cellar.

Morgan

Wine Director, Lead Sommelier Morgan LaCroix

Morgan grew up in the foodservice industry — at age 12, she started washing dishes at the country club her father ran. She studied art and art history in school but eventually decided that hospitality was home. Morgan’s restaurant career took her to resort destinations such as Park City, Utah; The Inn at Shelburne Farms, Vermont; Portland, Maine; and Providence, R.I., where she helped the restaurant Persimmon land a James Beard Award nomination for Outstanding Service.

She caught the wine bug in 2016 at her first Beverage Manager position and later became a Certified Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers. When not swirling wines, studying sakes, and holding tastings for guests at Twin Farms, Morgan hikes the Vermont woods and spends time with her cat, Nebbiolo.
