New Hampshire Steamboat and Local Wine Cruise

I am totally late on this one. But I am reposting anyway because it just goes to show the kinds of cool wine things that are going on with East Coast Wineries. Great blog post by Morgen Thiboult.

Grab your sweetie or your favorite wino and check out this very special event happening aboard the M/S Mount Washington.

On Thursday, August 5 from 6:30-9:30pm, the M/S Mount Washington will host a special wine and cider tasting sunset cruise.

The cruise will feature seven of NH's favorite wine makers including: Candia Vineyards, Farnum Hill Ciders, Flag Hill Winery and Distillery, Haunting Whisper Vineyards, Jewell Towne Vineyards, Labelle Winery and Zorvino Vineyards.

"This is an opportunity for NH residents and visitors to discover and taste some of the best wines NH has to offer in a beautiful setting..." said Tom Zack, Wine Director of Zorvino Vineyards.

Besides wine there will be live music entertainment, a variety of hot and cold hors d'oeuvres as well as glasses of wine available for purchase.

If you can't make it on this sunset wine cruise, consider checking out another day or evening cruise through Mount Washington Cruises. And definitely do yourself a favor and explore one of New Hampshire's great vineyards and wineries by visiting the NH Winery Association.
