Palate Press Story – Westport Rivers

Palate Press has given me the opportunity to write about one of my favorite regional wineries. Worth the trip from anywhere in New England.

  1. I’ve been to Westport Rivers and yes it was worth the trip for me. I really enjoyed their NV Pineau de Pinot. It was quite good and very reminiscent of a cognac with fig and honey nuances, well at least for me – very tasty. I’m on my quest to visit all or almost all of the New England wineries. I’ve hit about 45 so far. Any recommendations on “must” visit wineries?

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. Pretty much all of the members of the Coastal Wine Trail offer a great experience (see post:http://wp.me/p1xVl7-6i). Turtle Creek in Lincoln is excellent too.

      • I just visited Hardwick Vineyards & Winery and Mineral Hills on Friday and had a great time at both wineries. Seems that in MA a TV show called “Chronicle” (or at least I think that was the name) will review “things to do” in the state and when I arrived at Hardwick around 1 pm the sommelier asked if I was here because of the show. When they found out I was from CT they understood why I didn’t know about the show. Anyway, they were busy to say the least and glad that I decided to visit them.

        I was quite impressed with both wineries and at Hardwick I tried their Quabbin Native both chilled and warmed with mulling spices, both were awesome – don’t know which one I liked better. At Mineral Hills I was lucky enough to get a barrel tasting of their 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon and this will be a show stopper if he can keep the pH at the level he wants. New England wines have come a long way and I only see them getting better with age – no pun intended:)

        So, I will look up Turtle Creek and visit them soon based on your recommendation.

  2. Thank you for such a fantastic web site. On what other blog could anyone get this kind of information written in such an insightful way? I have a presentation that I am just now working on, and I have been looking for such info.
