The Massachusetts Farm Wineries & Growers Association is pleased to present the inaugural Taste of Massachusetts Wine Festival on June 2nd. This not-to-miss event will take place at the Three County Fairgrounds in Northampton from 1:00 - 6:00 PM.
*****We do ship our wines within the State of Massachusetts. Please contact us via our "contact us" page to arrange shipping to a MA. address. Someone 21 yrs old or older will have to sign for the wine when it arrives. At this point we have not pursued licenses which will allow us to ship to other states.
Mineral Hills Winery, named for the Mineral Hills which are located near the farm, has been a dream of ours for years. With the addition of a new barn in 2008, the winery has become a reality. Now fully licensed and we are making wine for our customers.
We had been making wine as a hobby for years. Initially we made honey wine (mead). Over the years we have added apple wine, grape wine and various blends. With the addition of our vineyard in 2005, we can now make grape wine.
We are growing French American hybrid grapes. The varieties we grow are: reds - Frontenac, Chamborcin, Whites - Cayuga, Seyval Blanc. We also make honey wine (mead), apple wine and blueberry wine. We also import vinifera grapes/juice (i.e. Cabernet Savigon, Chardonnay), so we can offer wines from grapes that will not grow in our area.
We have expanded our selection of wines in 2012. We produced more Chardonnay, Apple wine and honey wine (mead). For reds we have : Frontenac, a new sweet red (Red Hen Red) and a 2010 Cabernet Savignon & more whites: Cayuga and Seyval Blanc. We are also made a Blueberry wine ("Wicked Blue"), and a blush ("NoHo Blush"). We have produced around 700 cases of wine this year (2012).
The plan is to try to appeal to everyones taste by offering the three red grape wines that go from dry to sweet, three white grape wines that go from dry to sweet and also have honey wine (Mead) , Apple and Blueberry wines. All these are now ready for tasting and for sale.
