Unfamiliar with our wines? Looking for the perfect wine for dinner? You’ve had the Chardonnay, Cabernet, and Merlot but want to try something a bit more adverturious like the Strawberry Rhubarb Wine! Well then, step up to the tasting bar – try before you buy! All of our guests (21 years of age and older) are welcome and encouraged to enjoy samples of our delicious and unique grape and fruit wines. Our knowledgeable staff is happy to serve you and answer all of your questions and help you make your selections.
There is a $6.00 fee for our tasting bar which includes a complimentary tasting glass plus five – 5/8 of an ounce tasting of any five of our standard wines. Customers are limited to a maximum of 10 – 5/8 of an ounce servings. Premium wines and ports may carry an additional fee. Reservations are not necessary. The tasting area is open whenever the wine shope is open. However, while wine tastings can continue up to the time of closing, we stop selling tickets for wine tastings 15 minutes prior to closing to ensure that you have an adequate amount of time to complete your tasting prior to closing.
Wine Shoppe is open year round, seven days a week with the exception of The Fourth of July, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Tasting is available Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10-4:30 pm and on Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 5:30 pm.
Weekend Tours – Saturday & Sunday 11 am to 4 pm. No Reservations Required
Guided tours of our wine-making facility are held every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year. The first tour on Saturday and Sunday starts at 11:00 a.m. with additional tours conducted approximately every hour. On the weekend we offer an informative tour that will interest novices and seasoned wine veterans alike. Each tour will guide you through the entire wine making process from the pressing of the fruit to the bottling of our wines. Winery tours also include a quick review of our still and distilling process and the creation of some world class spirits. Tours last approximately 3/4 of an hour and the last tour of the day starts at 4:00 p.m.
Explore our production facility and discover the process we use for making our highly-acclaimed fruit wines, brandies and distillates. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff specializes in providing our guests with a unique glimpse of the winemaking process.
Our tours includes a complimentary tasting glass plus six – 5/8 of an ounce tasting of four wines selected by our staff plus 2 additional selections from standard wines. The tour includes a commemorative wine glass for you to take home. Premium wines and ports may carry an additional fee.
Reservations are not required and a small fee of $10.00 per person (21 years of age and older) is charged. Under 21 years of age are free. Children are allowed to accompany parents on the tours providing that they are properly supervised.
Private Group Tours
Private tours are available on weekdays ONLY (Monday through Friday) from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Reservations are required and must be booked at least 7 days in advance. In addition, reservations are subject to our production schedule. The cost is as follows:
1 to 30 people – $240.00
31 to 40 people – $8.00 per person is required
Groups greater than 40 will be split into two or more groups but will still incur a charge of $8.00 per person.
You should allow approximately one hour for your group’s visit. For groups in excess of 40, you should plan an additional ½ hour for each additional tour. This will provide adequate time for the tour, wine sampling, browsing and shopping at the Wine Shoppe. Depending on the season, you may choose to extend your visit to include lunch in our rustic farm house restaurant, a barbecue in our outdoor pavilion, or a picnic lunch to go from our restaurant J’s, pick your own fruit (July through October), or just delight in the scenery. Weekend tours are open to the general public. Because weekends are very busy, we are unable to schedule private tours or guarantee time and space availability for “walk-in” group tours. Each private group tour includes a commemorative Nashoba Valley wine glass for each guest to take home. The minimum non-refundable private group tour fee of $240.00 must be paid in advance by check or major credit card (American Express, VISA or MasterCard) to guarantee your reservation. The remaining balance is due at the start of your tour.
