Meandering country roads  ...Historic sites  … All roads lead to some new place to explore, some new adventure to enjoy, and some new pleasures to delight in.  Stay awhile.  Take the grand tour.  Spread a picnic.  Admire the view, and join in the fun.  If you’re lucky, you’ll be just in time for a tasting, cookout, festival, or of course, you’re always in time to join us for wine tasting.

Our winery produces award winning handcrafted fruit and grape wines, is open 12 months a year, and sponsors tasting events throughout the year.  Our farm grows a variety of fruit, allowing us to have total control of our product, from the harvest, right to the bottle.  Maybe that's why we're always selling out of our award winning Black Gold, Damson Plum and Blackberry Wine.  Presently we have over 20 varieties of wine, with 17 of them medal winners and many styles in limited quantities.  Our hard cider has been awarded a Concordance Gold, Best of Class medal, in 2005 and Gold Medals, in 2006 and 2007.  Our newest hard cider product, Razzy Apple won it's first Gold Medal last spring. 

The winery is located at Charlton Orchards Farm, Route 20, in Charlton Massachusetts.  Founded in 1733, the farm is one of the oldest settlements in south central Massachusetts.  We are only 15 minutes from Historic Sturbridge, Hyland Orchards Brewery, in Sturbridge, and 20 minutes to Taylor Brooke Winery in Woodstock CT.

My family has been growing fruit in Southern New England for over 50 years.  Although we are fairly new at wine making (1999) we know how important great fruit is to the finished product.  Maybe that is why our winery sales and production have grown continuously over the years.  Our family traditions also dictate that we always make time for our customers, both large and small.  My wife and I personally handle the wine tasting.  You can find one of us behind the bar most weekends each year. 

I guess my philosophy about wine is as simple as my life style.  I believe my wine translates our family values and heritage.  We are hard working people that take pride in what we grow and make, with American values that state I'm proud enough of this wine to put my father's picture, Nathan, Sr. on every bottle, and I even named one after both of us, Nate's Hard Cider.  Above all else, I believe our wines should be consumed for the sheer enjoyment of taste. 

Massachusetts has almost 30 wineries, and plenty of Microbreweries.  Right here, in South Central Massachusetts, we have 5 wineries and a couple of  microbrewery all within 15-20  miles of each other.  Why not come out and make a day of it.  Tours are offered during events or by appointment.  

Our Wine Store is open for tasting every weekend through out the year.  Call for store hours during the winter months.  Join us for our Wine Tasting Events and Harvest Festivals.  So come soon and visit often.
