Day Trip Part 2- Nashoba Valley Winery Tasting and Picnic Lunch August 3, 2011

Filed under: Food,HOME,Travel — Sharon @ 12:10 pm

Nashoba Valley Winery is a really cool winery in Bolton Ma.   Ron and I had been there before in the Fall for Sunday Brunch at the restaurant and then a tasting.  When we went on a sunday in the fall the place was PACKED with people and it was crazy.    It was so different on a monday in summer.  We went at a great time and there was only another 2 couples in the whole place.

The wine building is separate from the restaurant and it is a  wood building with a wrap around porch with outdoor seating.

The building inside is a large great room with wall to wall bottles of wine and a small bar for tastings.

The tasting is really good deal.  You get to try 5 wines and keep the glass for only $4.00

They grow apples, peaches and plums as well as grapes on the property so they make some really different flavored wines.  I tried the Vignoles, Strawberry Rubarb, Dry Pear, Semi Sweet Blueberry and Cyser.

We bought a bottle of Vignoles. From the Website~Produced as a dry wine, our estate Vignoles is rich with tropical notes of pineapple, melon, honey and citrus. A soft and subtle approach finishes with a lingering hint of green apple and a lush display of fruit. 

We sat out on the porch and grabbed the cooler from the car.  There is a great view of the orchards and a perfect grape-vine covering the veranda.

The Vineyard used to only do fruit wines but in 2008 they started their first grape wines.  They also do beer and some spirits including Vodka, Brandy and Gin.

We split a turkey avocado and a chicken salad sandwich.  Paired perfect with the crisp white wine.

I love this place.  We are going back in the fall for some apple picking.(and drinking)  Who is coming with us?

    I’m in for apple picking. Andy’s Honey Pot orchard where we always went apple picking with the family is also in Bolton. Another great orchard in that part of Ma.
