Candia Vineyards, a boutique NH winery located near the Seacoast Wine trail in Candia, New Hampshire, is excited to announce the holiday availability of two award-winning dessert wines.
Candia Vineyards, an award-winning boutique NH winery specializing in the production and vintage of fine grape table wines, is ready to enhance the chilly nights and social occasions of the approaching holiday season with two varieties of critically-acclaimed dessert wines. The Black Ice and Ice Storm labels are a favorite in national and international competitions, and can provide the perfect finish to a special holiday meal - or just go great around a cracking fireplace.
Candia Vineyard was recently the only New England winery recognized by the Congressional Wine Caucus in Washington DC. Their dessert wines are the best in their category in tasting competitions representing the wines of sixteen different countries, and the Black Ice and Ice Storm varieties were chosen from a selection of 3,500 wines as the superior product. 80 judges from around the world made the final decision to elevate Candia Vineyards to the top of the class.

Candia Vineyards has received critical acclaim of their wines before, holding world-class medals for many of their products. In fact, the winery produces the only world-ranked label of wine in the New England area. Their products are made entirely from area grapes, with no added fillers or flavorings to hide the bold flavors of handpicked fruit. The vineyard hopes to deliver a product to loyal regional customers that conveys a dedication to hard work and the history of the land they farm.
The experts at Candia Vineyards love wine, but they also love pairing good food with wine. By making the choice of a Candia label to pair with the correct flavors and dishes, their wines are designed to turn a good meal into a memorable experience that lasts a lifetime. This holiday season, the craftsmen at Candia Vineyards hope the award-winning Black Ice and Ice Storm varieties keep area connoisseurs jolly, but the vineyard knows that the benefits of good, local wine are a gift that keeps giving all year around.
