The Wire’s excellent feature article this week is about our two uber-local wineries, Flag Hill and Jewell Towne. While you can buy both companies’ products at the NH State Liquor stores, a lot of grocery stores, and even the farmers’ markets in the case of Jewell Towne, what you can’t do there is see just how beautiful a farm of vineyards is, and taste the wines to choose your favorites. Flag Hill Winery also offers local foods based cooking classes and dinners, as well as vodka and liquors made from local ingredients. The article mentions a soon to be released Apple Brandy as well – which for me means I’ll be making totally local sangria to savor during the September Eat Local Challenge.
