Hardwick Vineyard & Winery Releasing Baystate Blueberry Red Wine

HardwickBlueberryTallHardwick, MA—October 24, 2014—Hardwick Vineyard & Winery is announcing the release of their newest wine, Baystate Blueberry, a blend of Marechal Foch grapes and locally grown blueberries. The new wine will be available for purchase at the Winery starting Friday, October 24, 2014.  

To celebrate the release of this wine, Hardwick Vineyard & Winery will be hosting a Blueberry Bash party on Saturday, November 8, 2014 from 12:00 pm-3:00pm. The event will include live music from band Nashville Blues, BBQ and blueberry inspired beverages including beer, soda and the newly released Baystate Blueberry wine.

“We’re so excited and proud to be releasing this new wine.” says Jennifer Samek-Lutkus, Owner of Hardwick Vineyard & Winery. “With a rich taste and locally grown ingredients from right here in Massachusetts, this Baystate Blueberry wine truly represents the spirit of this winery.”

A semi-dry red wine, the Baystate Blueberry is a blend of Marechal Foch, a hybrid French red wine grape, and Massachusetts blueberries. With aromas of fresh berries and plum, it is perfectly balanced and features a medium bodied profile, soft tannins and vibrant fruit. Slightly sweet on the palate initially, it dries out nicely on the finish and will pair nicely with red meats, strong cheeses, wild game, as well as turkey and pork tenderloin.

As a family owned and operated winery, the Hardwick Vineyard and Winery has continually combined the local history and traditional New England flavors with their delicious wines. Built at the historical Giles E. Warner mansion in the beautiful country setting of Hardwick, the winery provides patrons with a piece of history with every tasting experience.  

The Winery is open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays & Holiday Mondays from 11:00am-6:00pm and offers tastings of 6 wines accompanied by a souvenir logo glass for $6.00. The newly released Baystate Blueberry wine will be available for tastings and to purchase for by the bottle for $17.00.
