Sip, Sip, Hooray!

Here at 4Squares, we are all about the road less traveled. While many folks head to apple orchards (and we do have some recs for those), this year we're opting for another fruity fall sensation: wine.

Believe it or not, Massachusetts is a haven for wine enthusiasts, boasting remarkable vineyards and wineries. If you're on the hunt for great wine and stunning landscapes, these destinations should be at the top of your list:

Westport Rivers Vineyard and Winery 417 Hixbridge Road, Westport, MA (pictured above)

Nestled amidst the picturesque farmland of the South Coast, Westport Rivers Vineyard and Winery offers an excellent selection of sparkling wines that will leave your taste buds tingling with delight. Take a leisurely stroll through the vineyard and enjoy the serene atmosphere while sipping their signature top-notch bubbly while kicking back in one of the Adirondack chairs on the expansive lawn.

Spirit away mid-week for tastings, which are now back on the menu post-COVID between 11 am to 4:45 pm Monday through Saturday. Reservations are required for parties of more than 10 people.

Nashoba Valley Winery 100 Wattaquadock Hill Rd, Bolton, MA

For those who prefer a variety of wines, Nashoba Valley Winery is the place to be. With a diverse range of reds and whites, this winery has something for everyone.

Enjoy traditional varietals such as Malbec, Chardonnay, or Cabernet Sauvignon, or tantalize your taste buds with some non-traditional Amora Blackberry Port Style Wine, Cherry wine, or Foggy Bog, a cranberry-apple dessert style aperitif. Take in the foliage and enjoy the company of fellow wine enthusiasts during your visit. Tours and tastings can be booked up to 21 days in advance, including dining at the Vintner's Knoll, the vineyard's on-site restaurant.

Truro Vineyard 11 Shore Road, North Truro, MA

The 4Squares Team is a big fan of the Cape off-season, and the Truro Vineyard is a must-see-and-sip as far as we're concerned.

Sample their Lighthouse Wine Series — composed of Cranberry Red, Diamond White, Cape Blush, and Vignoles wines — all available in their signature lighthouse-shaped bottles while taking in the soothing sights of the nearby ocean. It's the perfect place to unwind and indulge in these regional flavors.

For those seeking more potent potables, check out Truro’s South Hollow Spirits selection of whiskey, gin, rum, and amaro, all produced in stand-alone, small batches using local ingredients, right down to the copper barrels they’re aged in.

1634 Meadery 3 Short Street, Ipswich, MA

Now for something completely different: Mead! With its luscious honey-infused flavors, Mead delights the palate with a rich and indulgent sweetness that is truly irresistible, and the 1634 Meadery is where it's at.

Explore the world of honey-infused beverages and discover a whole new realm of flavors, which run the gamut from Puritan Pride (“Nothing fancy here!”) to Devil’s Footprint (“You’ve been warned!”). Other notable potables include Mother Clucker (“Did someone say ‘tart’?”) and Minuteman, an homage to our Revolutionary roots.
