Cape Cod Wineries

Cape Cod, Massachusetts, is known for its beautiful sandy beaches and fresh-off-the-boat seafood. Oh yeah, and that little movie and its three sequels about a man-eating great white shark that attacks beachgoers.

But did you know Cape Cod is also a great destination for wine lovers? As a Massachusetts gal, it’s one of my favorite local vacation spots for catching some rays and sipping some great vino.

May is one of the best times to visit Cape Cod. The weather is warming up, and the summer crowds haven’t hit yet.

Truro Vineyards makes some of the best wines on Cape Cod. I love a good Cabernet Franc, and their Estate Cabernet Franc is one of my favorites.

The winery makes about a dozen different wines, both still and sparkling. A few are typical New England fruit wines, made from local cranberries and Maine blueberries.

They produce about 4,000 cases and 50,000 bottles of wine annually. Nearly half of this is sold through their “COOPerative,” where members can get hands-on experience during key parts of the winemaking process.
