You really don’t have to travel far to experience culture and craft. For those whose interests include history, agriculture, and of course, experiencing libations, you don’t want to miss Jewell Towne Vineyard and Winery, in South Hampton, NH. Located right on the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border, Jewell Towne is a local, family-owned business that brings great enjoyment to our area. Did you know that Jewell Towne Vineyards started as just six grapevines, and has now grown into a licensed commercial Vineyard that produces 9,000 cases of wine every year? The family who began the production grows and harvests with passion to keep this business supplying over 150 restaurants and stores in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Talk about growing with love!
While it is wonderful we can buy this locally-sourced wine at some of our favorite shops (including Hannaford, and Market Basket) you can make the most of the vineyard by visiting and tasting on-site! Jewell Towne offers wine tastings Wednesday through Fridays from 11am to 4pm, as well as Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 5pm. It’s a beautiful trip to make in the fall, as you can take a walk around the grounds as the foliage begins to emerge. It is an equally fun place cozy up in the winter during a snowy weekend! For groups under 7 people, each member of your party can have 5 complimentary tastings of wine. The options include red, white, and dessert wines. You can choose from popular styles such as Cabernet Sauvignon, or venture for their award-winning Seyval 2016 (season depending). For a real sweet treat, try an Ice Wine like Vidal Ice Wine 2014 to conclude off your tasting. We are blessed to live in an area with so many remarkable local businesses, and this is one that is definitely worth the stop!
