We pioneered the art of maritime grape growing on Cape Cod, and our vinifera vineyard produces wine with intense flavor and lush varietal character. We open our doors each season to wine lovers from around the world who visit the tasting room and gift shop in our carefully restored 1830's farmhouse. During the summer, wine tastings are held outdoors under our tasting pavillion.
