Local Winery Receives National Accolades

Published Thursday Sep 11, 2008

Jewell Towne Vineyards, an award-winning winery in South Hampton, was recently mentioned in the Sept. 8 edition of Time Magazine. In an article titled "50 States of Wine," a wine was selected from each state, tasted and reviewed. Wines
from only 11 states received the reviewer's highest rating, a score of excellent. One of those 11 chosen included a
2007 Valvin Muscat from Jewell Towne Vineyard.

According to the article's author, Joel Stein, Jewell Towne's Valvin Muscat was "sweet but balanced, with some nice mineral on the finish, like a good riesling. It's not a wine that's trying too hard or is too proud of itself. It just gets the job done right. This is one of the very few wines we drank the whole bottle of. Who knew New Hampshire was better at picking grapes
than Democratic nominees?"

Jewell Towne has received other national accolades, including previous mentions in Yankee Magazine and the Boston Globe.
