The state of Massachusetts hosts more than a dozen wineries, scattered from its western end to the coastal areas south of Boston, as well as on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket islands. Grape growing in the state is concentrated on coastal lands within the Southeastern New England AVA. In other parts of the state, fruit wines are more common and grape wines are often made from fruit imported from other parts of the U.S. The cold-climate conditions make French-American hybrid varieties like Seyval, Vidal, and Marechal Foch popular choices with growers. But some important producers have exclusively vinifera programs, focusing on varieties like Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Noir. Given the growing conditions and varieties, it is not surprising to find excellent, Traditional Method sparkling wines made in the state. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)

  • Ridge Zinfandel Lytton Springs 2010


    Something of a sour viney nose. I'm not getting much fruit flavor on the palate at all. Super stark drying sensation, mostly. I may require more air. A bit bitter on the back of the palate. I like the lack of fruitiness, but you have to really like lean wines to enjoy this one. US$27.99 at Packing House Wine Merchants in Claremont. Amendm... Read More

  • Hecht & Bannier Cotes du Roussillon Villages 2010


    A really exciting wine on the nose with lots of depth and complexity: meaty/gamey notes combine with lots of berry fruit and floral/perfumed violet notes. Would have liked to see more of the same depth/complexity on the palate. Still great though, with lots of plummy fruit and savoury notes that's well balanced with good acidity and soft tannins...

    Predominantly Zinfandel wine from Ridge. Excellent wine! Fruit forward and jammy on the front with lots of pepper and zinfandel character showing through on the backend. Leather and smoke throughout. Long delicious finish. Read More

    Wine review by William Djubin

  • Frei Brothers Chardonnay Russian River Valley Reserve 2011


    A bit subdued on the nose with a nice core of pineapple and lime zest fruit overlaid with spicy, sweet, slightly marshmallowy oak. A bit soft on entry, then this turns fairly firm in the mouth with a nice spine of acid lending freshness to apple and almost peachy fruit that is wrapped in caramel and creme brulee accents. theres a hint of creamin...
