Like hearts, wineglasses are fragile, full of goodness, and frequently broken. Live life to the brim with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $9 for a vineyard outing for two with a tour, tasting, and two souvenir glasses (up to an $18.52 value)
- $18 for a vineyard outing for four with a tour, tasting, and four souvenir glasses (up to a $37.04 value)<p>
While the vineyard’s club members garner free tastings, today’s Groupon is still the best deal available for non-members.<p>
While many brothers grow up as rivals, Paul and John Nunes instead became partners. With a love of wines and wide-open spaces, the two siblings decided to establish a winery rather than surrender 60 acres of family farmland to real estate developers. Today, their labor of love, Newport Vineyards, extracts an impressive roster of reds and whites from the trellises that crisscross the farm, spilling emerald floods of vines. The vineyard team nurtures the grape-heavy plants and keeps them from being recruited by gangs of raisins. The fruit eventually becomes wines such as the In The Buff chardonnay, which is fermented in stainless steel tanks to draw out a bouquet of aromas. The Gemini, one of John Nunes's favorite bottles, is a smooth blend of merlot and cabernet.
Most of the wines spend stints in French-oak barrels, which John points out as he leads tour groups across the grounds. At the rough-hewn wooden tables in the tasting room, glasses click together as the vineyard's staff shares anecdotes about each bottle's origins, aromas, and ideal food pairing. Newport Vineyards also carries a variety of holiday gifts, such as wine, wine accessories, and custom labels.
I also did a tour which was a nice way to learn about their vineyard, and the tour guide/bartender was humorous and knowledgeable.Holly C., Yelp, 3/8/12
The tour itself is well-prepared and executed. Our guide gave us a thorough history of the vineyard (who owns it, etc.) as well as the grape varietalsJoanna r., Yelp, 12/21/11
