Vineyard and Wineries

Vineyards and Wineries

Rhode Island wineries produce an eclectic array of vintages. Even better, many Rhode Island vineyards welcome visitors to not only taste their wine selections, but to view and learn more about the wine making process.Whether you're looking to visit one winery while you're in Rhode Island or to plan an entire itinerary around "vineyard hopping," this tip will help make your visit most enjoyable. You're least likely to find wineries open during the winter months, though many stay open year round. The fall foliage season is a splendid time of year to plan a winery-themed tour of one or more wineries. Don't miss the chance to stay at a B&B that produces its own wine. Keep in mind, too, that when you buy and bring home bottles of Rhode Island made wine, you'll be able to relive your Rhode Island vacation memories at the twist of a corkscrew.

Diamond Hill Vineyards
Blackstone Valley & Northern Rhode Island
Diamond Hill is managed by Pete and Claire Berntson. The Berntsons did their first planting of Pinot Noir vines in 1976 and now cultivate ten acres of this classic French grape. The first vintage released is the 1983 Pinot Noir, grown at Diamond Hill with special attention to proper yield and vinified in the French tradition using new French oak barrels for aging. Because fine Pinot Noir requires this long aging, they decided to explore the potential of making other wines from New England with fruits such as apples, blueberries and peaches to name a few. Diamond Hill has been commended for its Cranberry Apple, Blueberry, Peach, Plum, and Pinot Noir Blanc wines as well as its 1993 Pinot Noir.
