Wineries, Cheese Makers and Farms to Visit in Massachusetts

BellaDonna Jul 17, 2012 01:29 AM

I am looking for the best wineries, cheese makers and farms to visit within 2 hours of Boston (preferable to stay in Massachusetts, southern NH and Maine will be considered) Scenery is important but uniqueness is more appreciated. I found a website with the Massachusetts Wine and Cheese Trail list but wanted to know your personal experiences with any so I don't miss out on the better ones.

Thanks in advance.

    Westfield Farm in Hubbardston. (just north and west of Worcester. Wonderful goat's milk cheeses.
    It's right next to Princeton,, so you can poke around and visit Mt. Wachusett. Quabbin
    Resevoir is incredible, and not too far.

      We've enjoyed Westport Rivers Vineyards in the past. Lovely setting and delicious sparkling wines.

        I recommend Bolton Winery and then Bolton Orchards...two lovely stops in central MA.
