TURTLE CREEK NEWS
11 January 2014
Relativel;y speaking, this is a quiet time in the winery and the vineyard is asleep.We will soon start bottling the 2012 red wines. 2014 marks our sixteenth year as a commercial winery.
We will be at the Goddard House Assisted Living in Brookline the evening of 6 February from 5:30 - 7:00 PM. A short lecture on"Pushing the Envelope: Growing Classic Wine Grapes and Making Wine in New England" will be followed by the opportunity to ask questions and taste the wines. The Goddard House is an important community resource and offers many different programs of interest. For more information and to make a reservation, please click here: Goddard House

NEW CHOICES: FULL-TOUR OR MINI-TOUR
We offer regularly scheduled wine tours. We do not have a tasting room or visitor center. Instead, we offer two different tours, led by the winemaker which emphasize the science and art in viticulture & winemaking. These tours are usually scheduled on Sunday afternoons and posted here under TOURS in the header above. Reservations for either tour are required. Now, you can choose any scheduled date and make a reservatiuon for either a MINI-TOUR, which lasts about one ahour, includes a tour of our undergrund barrel room and explores the differences in classic grapes made into wines, or the FULL-TOUR which lasts about two hours, begins with a tour of the vineyard near the winery, followed b ya visit to the fermentation room and lab. It also includes everything in the MINI-TOUR. Each tour includes a complimentary tasting. The FULL-TOUR usually starts at 3 PM and the MINITOUR at 4 PM. Please go to the menu header above entitled "TOURS" to see the schedule and conveniently make a reservation.
