Flag Hill Winery

488041_745753412343_149977491_nTo begin my February Vacation and end Michelle’s (Mark’s sister), the three of us went to Flag Hill Winery in Lee, New Hampshire in 2013. Little did we know, it is also a distillery.

Flag Hill’s tasting room is on location. We have found that some of the wineries in Northern New England have separate facilities for their wine making and wine tasting, but Flag Hill has it all on the same land plot. It appears to be a beautiful place, somewhere worth going back to during the summer, to enjoy a picnic before or after a tasting.
Upon arrival, we were each given a list, with wine on one side and liquor on the other. We were told to pick 8 from the list, but still remaining in order from the list given. Try wines before liquors and whites before reds. They also have a port wine. They create wine that reflect the flavors of grapes that are grown only in the Northeast region, so you won’t find a Chardonnay or a Merlot, but other delicious white and red wines. They also create delicious fruit wines, including Apple Cranberry and Blueberry.
 

Apple Fruit Wine, similar to a Crisp Apple Cider. Michelle took this one home

Vignoles, semi-sweet white wine. Enjoyed this one, but it wasn’t exactly for me. Not sweet enough
Cayuga White, DELICIOUS, sweet, white wine. I left with two bottles of this one!
 
Josiah Bartlett Barrel Aged Apple Brandy, great apple/brandy flavor. 
 White Mountain Moonshine, white whiskey. Mark bought one of these. Really enjoyed it. Loved that it was called moonshine as well
 

Strawberry Liqueur, would be perfect in a mixed drink! We all tried this one

Flag Hill Winery and Distillery offers tastings Wednesday-Sundays 11am-5pm. Definitely worth the time to go.
