We’ve decided to move the blog to WordPress where we’ll have a bit more control of the content. Check us out there!
Last Saturday, Adam and I went to the Nashoba Valley Winery in Bolton, MA. This place is more than just a winery. They not only make their own wine, but also brew their own beer and liquor! Getting here, I couldn’t help but feel like we were driving through a little town in Vermont. Very quaint and charming. When you pull up all you see is fields and grape vines everywhere.
As we waited for our tour to start, we were able to try some wines and beer that weren’t going to be featured in the tour. I tried a blackberry wine that was very good and also their dry, apple New English Cider. (Yes they even make cider including pear!). It was my favorite for sure. Very light, dry and refreshing. During the tour, we were able to learn a bit about the history of the winery and of course (the best part) were able to sample some of their wines. The most noteable being their wine of the month: Strawberry Ruhbarb. Which reminds me…I had no idea you could make wine from fruit other than grapes! (Goes to show what I know I guess…) Anyway the Strawberry Rhubarb was…OK. A little too sweet for me but I can see where other people may like it. We also found out that they make vodka from apples, which I thought was pretty neat. I didn’t hear anything about apple picking, but I made note that I wanted to comeback here during the Fall season. The scenery should be amazing.
After the tour, we were able to purchase some wine and of course some beer…and we headed to my parents house where we had some dinner and were able to share and enjoy our purchases out on the back deck. A perfect way to spend a summer evening!
Well hope you enjoy the photos. If you haven’t been there yet, I highly recommend it. The tour is cheap (only $7) and it was about an hour and included 4 tastings. Their store also has quite the selection of wine, as you can imagine, but also beer and some food items such as jams, cheeses and crackers. You can actually go outside and sit at picnic tables and chairs to relax and enjoy your wine, beer or whatever you purchased. You can’t beat that! Check it out and see for yourself! :)
