The Best Wineries and Vineyards in New Hampshire

Best Wineries and Vineyards in New Hampshire

The beloved Granite State is known for a lot of things.

Their mountains, hiking trails, ski resorts, restaurants, breweries, colleges, you name it.

It’s seriously one of the best states that there is.

But if you never thought that this state may be known for their wineries, well, think again.

The New Hampshire wine industry is booming, and is surprisingly home to some of the best wineries and vineyards there are.

The stunning, rolling fields and hills of the northern state are home to some of the best locally grown fruit that you can find, perfect for winemaking!

So it should come as no surprise that these wonderful local spots are bursting with popularity from people all over New England.

People travel here with their friends, with bachelorette parties, or even by themselves as something to do for the day.

When visiting New Hampshire, you’d be doing it wrong if you didn’t visit a local winery.

Here are all of my favorite places to visit, that are tried and true among myself, my friends, and my family.

Seriously, you can’t miss these New Hampshire wineries!

Birch Wood Vineyards

Birch Wood Vineyards is a charming winery nestled in the heart of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region, which in my opinion, is one of the most stunning regions there is.

The winery is renowned for its impressive selection of locally sourced wines, which are crafted using traditional methods and are made with only the freshest grape varieties. 

With a welcoming atmosphere and breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, Birch Wood Vineyards is also a super popular destination for bachelorette parties, weddings, family gatherings, and more.

I mean really. This spot is just stunning.

All of this makes Birch Wood Vineyards the perfect destination for wine connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike.

Zorvino Vineyards

This is a tried and true NH winery for me.

I keep going back.

Located in the sleepy town of Sandown, Zorvino Vineyards is providing the Southern New Hampshire natives with good wine, good food, and more.

All of their wine is made on site from a variety of fruits, from classic bottles to more unique pours and dessert wines (I mean, a mojito wine? PB&J? Amazing).

Aside from the wine, they also serve food that is to die for in their full kitchen.

Their beautiful, sweeping grounds and stunning function hall make this vineyard the perfect spot for an event (they have the best nights of dinners and wine pairings) or wedding.

Funny enough, I’m having my own wedding here. So if you believe any endorsement, believe this one.

Whether it’s for a flight or a meal, you can’t go wrong with Zorvino.

LaBelle Winery

One of New Hampshire’s most iconic spots, LaBelle Winery is a local attorney turned winemaker’s dream.

Amy and Cesar LaBelle founded this great place in the year 2005 at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole, New Hampshire.

From there, business soared, and they are now owned and operated out of Derry and Amherst, New Hampshire.

LaBelle specializes in premium, award winning wines made from locally sourced grapes.

In addition to the winery, LaBelle features a market, gift shop, restaurant, and event space for gatherings, weddings, and more.

In terms of wineries, you can never go wrong with this southern New Hampshire staple.
