New Hampshire Winery Adventure
Many of you have enjoyed our past winery tours! This spring, let us take you a little farther afield as we sample some of the finest wines along the southern New Hampshire Wine Trail. Experience the hospitality of some of the granite state’s best known wine venues during this day of touring, tasting, and shopping.
Our first stop will take us to scenic Lee and the Flag Hill Winery where all of the wines are produced using cold hardy grapes grown on site. With the largest vineyard in the state, Flag Hill is proud to say they are 100% New Hampshire!
Our second stop will be Labelle Winery in Amherst where winemaker Amy LaBelle began making small batches of wine in 2005. Production has dramatically increased, now offering over 30 styles of award winning, world class wines all produced in their state of the art facility surrounded by lush vineyards. We’ll sample some of the favorites followed by plenty of time to visit the gift shop featuring all 34 varieties for sale along with the Winemakers’s Kitchen culinary line.
Our last stop of the day is the unique Moonlight Meadery in Londonderry. Mead, the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage, is made from honey and hard ciders. The diversity of Moonlight’s offerings often leaves people speechless, while the flavors have them asking for it from their local retailers. Try some Blood Moon, Wet and Wild or Truth Bee Told – you just might develop a new tasting hobby!
Our tour lunch will be served at the Holy Grail Restaurant in Epping where the old St. Joseph’s Church has been reborn into one of the Seacoast’s premier restaurants. The owner’s Irish roots are reflected in the food and ambience of this very unique pub.
Our dinner stop will be at The Cracker Barrel in South Portland (not included in registration fee).
