Visit to Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington, CT

On a hot, but otherwise beautiful, summer day in New England several weeks ago we took a drive out to North Stonington and visited the Jonathan Edwards Winery. It has been several years since our last visit here, and definitely time to catch up on the winery and the wines. We’ve seen them at wine

Visit to Diamond Hill Vineyards in Cumberland, RI

Something we generally do at least once every year, and preferably more than that, is take the short drive up Route 295 to visit Diamond Hill Vineyards. As we have previously reported, Diamond Hill is one of our favorite New England wineries. There are a few reasons for that, including the fact that they still

We recently stopped by another of our local New England wineries, this time Leyden Farm in West Greenwich, RI. Leyden Farm is a relatively new winery, only being open for business for the past three or four years. We visited about two years ago to see how things were going, and they had just opened

We were in Cooperstown, New York over the weekend, visiting Alex at school for Easter, and used a few leisure hours to visit some of the local wineries. One, Rustic Ridge, we had been to before and the reviews this time were similar. The other however was brand new, and we got a chance to

Visit to Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod

As we’ve mentioned, we happened to be on Cape Cod during the recent blizzard, and what fits in better with snow and ice than a trip to a local vineyard? While there may be several better answers, in this case we were there, one of the owners graciously offered to show us around, and Truro

2014 Pinot Noir Harvest at Diamond Hill Vineyards

Diamond Bin

If at all possible I like to break away for at least a morning and go to pick grapes during the harvest at a local New England winery. Two years ago I made it to Saltwater Farms on a glorious fall day. This year the beginning of the Pinot Noir pick at Diamond Hill happened

Annual Tasting and Picnic at Diamond Hill Vineyards in Cumberland, RI

The days wines

Every year, at least once, we take the short drive up to Cumberland and Diamond Hill Vineyards, laden with picnic basket and always thirsty. Diamond Hill is one of our favorite New England wineries for several reasons. One – they tend to have good wines, always made from 100% grapes or fruit, never a grape

An Excellent New England Red Wine from Saltwater Farm

SW Farm Cab-Merlot

When you make the rounds of New England wineries you quickly get the message that there will be good white wines, some fruit wines, some hybrids (like Vidal Blanc or St. Croix) some light reds (probably Cab Franc, maybe Merlot) and some more full bodied reds made from grapes or juice that were imported from
