A Quick Guide to Cape Cod Wineries
Welcome to your quick guide to Cape Cod wineries!
Visiting a Cape Cod winery is a must, whether you live in Cape Town or here on vacation. While wine is available at liquor stores across the region, Cape Town and the Islands are also home to a few wineries, each with their own history.
Cape Cod Vineyard: Truro Vineyards
Truro Vineyards is only a short distance from the ocean and claims that “our sandy soil, warm ocean breezes and temperate climate combine to produce grapes with intense flavor and lush varietal character.” One of the last working farms in the OuterCape, Truro Vineyards is the only vineyard in the region to cultivate vinifera, a grape native to the Mediterranean, Central Europe, Iran and parts of the ‘Asia. The five-acre farm produces 13 different wines from hand-picked grapes, including reds Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Zinfandel, and whites Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, and Vignoles. Truro Vineyard offers Cranberry Red, Diamond White, and CapeBlush wines packaged in lighthouse-shaped bottles shipped from Italy.
Truro Vineyards hosts wine tastings every 30 minutes during office hours, where you can sit on the pavilion overlooking the vineyards. The tasting costs $ 10 per person and includes a Truro Vineyards wine glass as a souvenir. Take a look at the video below to learn more about Truro Vineyards.

Cape Cod Vineyard: Premier Crush Winery
First Crush Winery in Harwich was founded by Frank D. Puzio, an ophthalmologist who has been honing his wine skills for 30 years. The grapes are grown in the vineyards of the NappaValley which reflect the Mediterranean climate, ensuring high quality fruit. With these virgin grapes, First Crush Winery produces five special wines: Fusion, visZINary, Star Spangled, Three-Sip-Cran and Cran Blanc. The wines age for up to a year, some containing dry-picked Cape Cod cranberries, California raisins, and sometimes a hint of caramel.
