Let us fill your glass this spring with the refreshing taste of Newport County’s finest homegrown wines. Three locally-owned vineyards sit just a few short miles from our inn in downtown Newport, each offering unique blends of your favorite reds and whites and picturesque views of Newport County’s lesser-known landscapes. Bring your camera, tour the sunny vineyards this spring, and savor Newport in a glass.
Greenvale Vineyards, Portsmouth, RI
A rustic and beautifully renovated stable is the tasting room to this winery featuring 24 acres of historic farmland owned by the same family since 1863. Just like the Admiral Fitzroy, Greenvale is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This shared historic pleasure, and the live jazz music on Saturday afternoons make Greenvale our preferred weekend vineyard escape. Tours and tastings are offered from 10 to 5 Monday through Saturday and 12 to 5 on Sunday.
Newport Vineyards, Middletown, RI
Boasting themselves as the “largest growers of wine grapes in New England,” this family-owned winery is an iconic landmark for visitors of the area. Check out their website for special events throughout the spring and summer like comedy nights, “Shakespeare in the Vineyard,” and a special Mother’s Day wine tasting this month. Regular tours are offered Sunday through Friday at 1 and 3 pm and Saturday hourly from 11am-4pm.
Sakonnet Vineyards, Little Compton, RI
A true wine connoisseur’s paradise, Sakonnet Vineyards is located just past the historic village of Tiverton Four Corners claiming that their rural southeastern location’s favorable growing conditions mirror some of the most famous wine regions in the world. Sakonnet has been on the block since 1975 and last year was purchased by Alex and Ani, giving it a new claim to fame. But its’ most treasured novelty might just be the chardonnay. Tastings are offered at 12 and 3pm with Thursday music nights throughout the summer.
We are pleased to announce we are now offering a Vineyard Escape Package at the inn, complete with a tour for two of one of the three vineyards this spring. Take advantage of the savings and our convienient location for your next getaway. We look forward to your visit!
