About Us

NuMondo strives to bring you healthy, old world products made from new world varieties locally grown on a small scale using sustainable practices.

Our products are grown and produced at Mt. Philo Farm and Vineyard in Charlotte, Vermont.  Our farm sits nestled between Mt. Philo State Park and Lake Champlain in the beautiful Champlain Valley.  The western aspect, lake breezes and glacial soils make our location a wonderful place for a vineyard cultivated with northern varietal grapes.  These grapes will go into the production of wines at Shelburne Vineyard in Shelburne, VT and  to make some unique northern balsamic vinegars using the traditional Balsamic method. 

Beyond grapes, we are interested in healthy farm products and have planted Mid-Oleic type Sunflowers and northern varieties of Lavender. The sunflowers produce a culinary oil to supply our local community with an unfiltered, nutritious oil that is excellent for both cooking and dressings. The first batch of lavender was harvested this year and we produced some natural hand and bath soap, sachets and sea salt for culinary or aroma-therapeutic use.

You will find our Products at Shelburne Vineyard, 6308 Shelburne Rd. Shelburne VT

Our Products

NuVine Red Balsamic Vinegar -  An intense blend made from cold climate northeastern grape musts & red wine vinegar. Pure no caramel color added or preservatives gives it a deep red natural color. 

It is unfiltered to preserve its nutrients and provide a unique flavor experience. 

We place it in oak-barrels and follow the balsamic method naturally. In a few years we will release the more traditional aged balsamic vinegar.  

Enjoy with Olive or other oil as a dip, in salads or in your favorite recipe.

NuBleu 100% VERMONT Lavender 
is 100% Vermont  organic grown lavender right at the farm. We carefully extract the essential oil to make wonderful all ORGANIC and natural lavender hand and bath soap bars. We also combine the flowers with Maine Sea Salt to make a culinary or bath salt for use in the kitchen or just to relieve the stress from a hard day. The flowers are available in  bunches or a sachet for aromatherapy or for use as a herb in grills or salads. Enjoy!
