Truro Vineyards Opens 4/3

Truro Vineyards opens for the season on April 3rd. They will celebrate their opening weekend (April 3-5) with complimentary tastings for all guests. Their hours of operation in April will be Fridays and Saturdays (11am-5pm) and Sundays (12pm-5pm). They will be closed seven days a week.

They have three new wines they will be releasing over the next few months. Their Estate Chardonnay (their first ever estate wine) is rich and buttery, with hints of vanilla and oak. The Estate Chardonnay label, painted by Mark Melnick, is of their old farmhouse and the beautiful Chinese Mulberry tree that has stood in front for almost 200 years. In celebration of the town of Truro's 300th birthday, the winery created a red and a white wine called "Truro 1709". The white wine is a Pinot Grigio, which is crisp, light, fruity and versatile. The Merlot is a soft, round and lovely red, with notes of red plum and cherry. The label for the 1709 series is a beautiful painting, also of the Highland Lighthouse, by Truro painter Robert Cardinal.
