We had a Living Social for this vineyard. I'm familiar with the area, so was surprised there was a vineyard in S. Dartmouth. It's not locatable by GPS, but pretty close. We drove up into a residential development of beautiful spread out homes. We initially thought this was some kind of scam and we would be going to someones house to drink wine in their living room. There is a small sign in the front of the house directing you around back to the winery. As we approached the back yard, we saw a sprawling lawn with the vineyard in the distance. The tasting took place in the back. There was a tasting in progress so we went out into the yard,and walked through the vineyard.
When it was time for our tasting, our guide "Bob" walked us through the history of how the owner got started in the business and the process of wine making. We tasted 7 wines. All of them were pretty good. As we tasted, Bob told us more about that particular wine. We were with a small group of other tasters, feeling like at the end we had found new friends.
The tasting lasted close to an hour.
If you get the chance, check it out. More fun than I anticipated.
