After only a few successful years, Hermit Woods Winery has outgrown its original location in Sanbornton, NH and has recently moved to its new home in Meredith Village. To celebrate the move, along with many months of renovations at the new site, Hermit Woods will be hosting a Grand Opening next weekend and everyone is invited!
The celebration, called “Uncorked”, will take place next Saturday and Sunday, April 12th and 13th, from 11am – 5pm, at Hermit Woods’ new home at 72 Main Street in Meredith. Guests will be able to experience the spacious new tasting room and try some of the winery’s award-winning wine. Visitors will also enjoy light snacks and refreshments, complimentary tours, artisan breads offered by The Bread Peddler, and live music. Mark Dionne will be performing folk- and adult alternative-style music from 11 – 2, and David Young will play some Jazz from 2 – 4 on both days.
“We are very excited to be part of the Meredith community,” says Bob Manley of Hermit Woods. “There are so many wonderful businesses in the area and we look forward to working with them to improve the Meredith experience for both Meredith residents and visitors alike.”
Hermit Woods Winery has been open for business on weekends since the middle of February to allow time to finish construction and work out the “bugs” in their new home. “It’s been going great,” says Bob. “We have had three very good weekends so far and that says a lot since it is March and we have not done any promoting . . . We are anticipating a very good season . . . If our reception during the past few weeks is any measure, we are going to be very busy. Everyone who walks through our doors is blown away by the transformation of what was once one of the saddest buildings on Main Street to what is now one of the nicest.”
The folks at Hermit Woods are pleased to announce they are now partnering with Oglethorpe Fine Arts & Crafts to provide a wonderful selection of American-made, handcrafted gifts in the tasting room. Oglethorpe at Hermit Woods will feature wine-related arts and crafts, such as cutting boards, wine barrel votive candle holders, bottle and glass holders, wine racks, wine glasses, wine stoppers, bowls, cheese plates, and slate serving trays.
“We are also really excited to be working with Mill Falls at the Lake to offer their guests a unique and educational wine experience while visiting Meredith,” says Bob. “We look forward to inviting boaters from all over Lake Winnipesauke to discover wine tasting by boat. We are just a few hundred yards from the town docks.”
“We look forward to the warmer months ahead when we can take full advantage of our new 500-square foot deck and conduct wine tastings on the deck. It’s going to be a great year!” says Bob.
