Experiences at NH/VT Vineyards?
Looking for a little assistane here, I got engaged on Christmas Eve and the hubby and I are looking towards a Fall 2010 wedding. The family is all in NH and VT. Future husband is a chef so food is important...has anyone had experience attending functions at any vineyards in NH or VT? Thanks!
I would also like to mention Flag Hill Winery in Lee, NH. Each year we attend one of their dinners and chef Ted McCormack is unbelievable! The food is very well prepared and the wine is very good as well. They are a small vineyard but very beautiful and romantic, for NH standards at least. I would very easily book a function there in their dining room. The staff is superb to work with. We've been going there for years.
We have been to a function a couple of times at Zorvino Vineyards in Sandown. The food was fantastic, and the room is absolutely beautiful. They have their downstairs area for wine tastings, and an upstairs room with a loft area and a huge stone fireplace. I would categorize the room as very romantic and large enough to hold a fairly big wedding. I was very impressed with their bar area as well. The staff was all courteous and friendly, as well as the owners. They usually have functions and parties there often being wine dinners. The next function is Jan 8 and is an italian wine tasting. At $25.00 per person it's very reasonable and you get alot of bang for your buck there.
No feedback for you, but some links that might help. The NH Winery Association site has a list of all the NH wineries that are members. Most of them look like they have websites, so you can probably get some info re: wedding parties, etc. from their sites.
Here's also a list of the VT wineries:
