Nashoba Valley Winery

Nashoba1We stumbled upon this winery while trying to look for a flea market in Bolton last Sunday. It was truly a pleasant find and we were glad that we decided to stop by and see what they offer. The winery had some kind of festival that day, and it was jam packed with people!

Nashoba Valley Winery is a hilltop orchard located in Bolton, MA. This family owned business not only offers a winery (& brewery), but also an orchard as well as a restaurant. The winery specializes in fruit wines made in their state-of-the-art wine making and distillation facility. The orchard offers pick-your-own peaches, plums and assorted apples. NashobaWe went there just to experience the wine tasting which was very reasonable at $4 per 5 wine tasting. With that $4, you go home with a fancy looking wine glass with their name/logo engraved on it. Not bad at all, this is cheaper than getting a glass of wine at a restaurant! =P. Between the 3 of us, we sampled more about 10-12 different kind of wines . Some we really love, some we don’t care for.

I went home with a bottle of After Dessert Peach Wine @ $11.25….YUMS!! Apparently, you can also taste their home brewed beer for FREE! I only found out about this after googling this winery for more information. For $6 (or $7), you can do a tour of the winery and that will also give you a chance to sample some of their wines. Check out their list of wines, spirits and beer.

This winery is now bookmarked in my list of things to do in Massachusetts! Maybe I could get some friends to try the restaurant one of this days. =) Or drive up to the winery with the husband to enjoy more wine tasting and the gorgeous hilltop view.
