Wine & Dine with New Hampshire

 

Blueberries have long conjured New England summers, and apples may evoke New England autumns—now it’s time to add grapes and honey to our sense of the region, and to experience their flavors year-round. In Wine & Dine with New Hampshire, Carla Snow brings you a closer look to New Hampshire’s award-winning wines, ciders, and meads and the pioneer companies who create them: Candia Vineyards, Farnum Hill Ciders, Flag Hill Winery and Distillery, Jewell Towne Vineyards, LaBelle Winery, Piscassic Pond Winery, and Zorvino Vineyards. Thanks to advances in hybridization, with cold-tolerant grape varietals developed at wineries and universities, wine-making is now possible even in New Hampshire’s relatively chilly climes. Apple orchards have evolved to explore the marvelous potential of cider apples at peak ripeness. Meanwhile, the August tradition of mead-making, which involves the fermenting of honey, is seeing a resurgence. Illustrated with stunning color photography, winery labels, and recipes created specifically to pair with or incorporate the beverages described, Wine & Dine with New Hampshire delivers the good news that New Hampshire viniculture and its sister arts are making a splash at home and abroad.
