New Hampshire Winery Adventure
Many of you enjoy our annual winery tour. 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.
We can’t leave Maine without stopping at the CellarDoor’s Thompson Point location. The urban sister to Lincolville’s popular winery is designed to spoil guests with elegance and city flair. We’ll sample a variety of wines that are both distinctly Maine-made and uniquely American. A charcuterie and cheese board, souvenir glasses and time for the gift shop round out our visit. In New Hampshire, we’ll first visit the 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. In Brookline, we’ll visit Averill Farm Winery where the Waite family prides itself in keeping an unassuming, friendly, and relaxing atmosphere at the winery that lends itself to personal exploration and an intimate tasting. The goal is to create the best wines and provide a rich and friendly atmosphere for family, friends, and wine-lovers alike. We’ll try four varieties, enjoy snacks, and go home with a souvenir glass and wine shop purchases!
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. Registration fee includes motorcoach transportation, three winery tours, tastings and souvenir glasses, and Holy Grail lunch. No one under 21 may participate -must have valid ID. For liability reasons, alcohol consumption on the bus is not permitted. Deadline to register is April 15th. No refunds will be issued after this date.
