Enthusiasts of Massachusetts wine can sample more than 70 pours at the Greater Boston Wine Festival on Sunday, July 28th at the Marshfield Fairgrounds. Organized by the Massachusetts Farm Wineries & Growers Association, this event will celebrate Bay State wines and feature live music along with tasty nibbles of cheese, chocolate, seafood chowder and wood-fired pizza. The Boston Wine School will be offering mini-seminars if you'd like to brush-up on your wine knowledge.

Asked how this differs from the wine festival held at the end of June in Westport, Kim LaFleur of the growers associaton explains that wineries from all over the Bay State will attend this event, not just those from the Coastal Wine Trail in Southeastern New England. Bottles for take-home purchase and samples for tasting will be poured by the following fourteen wineries:

Amherst Farm Winery
Balderdash Cellars
Coastal Vineyards
Green River Ambrosia
Hardwick Vineyard & Winery
Les Trois Emme Vineyard & Winery
Mineral Hills Winery
Mill River Winery
Mount Warner Vineyards
Still River Winery
Travessia Winery
Truro Vineyards
Westport Rivers Vineyard & Winery
Zoll Cellars

Pre-ordering tickets looks like a must. Attendees can choose one of two sessions (session I, 11am - 2pm; session II, 4pm - 7pm). Admission to the festival is $45 per person, plus a $5 (cash only) banding fee. (Friendly folk will make sure you're 21 and attach a wrist band so you can sample wines on offer. You'll also get a glass, wine tote and event program.) Go to or for more information.
