March 2019 - From Vine to Wine
Lauren Barrett - Co-Owner Whippletree Winery

It's two days before first day of Spring and the weather was cold and windy. Inspired by the informative program on that we had planned, 40 members and guests came to the Salyards Center to get all the best tips on how to grow your own cutting garden.

Hospitality created a wonderful spread of tasty goodies influenced by a colorful Spring theme. President Deb Holmes, presided over a brief business meetingand covered upcoming projects and events. Our monthly raffle once again offered wonderful prizes - the proceeds of the raffle supports our community projects and scholarships. Following the break, our speaker Lauren Barrett began her very informative program which concluded with a wine tasting of products from her winery.

Lauren Barrett is the co-owner of Whippletree Winery located in the quaint historic town of Tamworth, NH. She discussed the method of madness used to make the wine from the vine and how it is done locally. The winery is housed in a 1940s summer cottage which was moved from Ossipee Lake to Tamworth to save the building. The building was originally owned by Virgil D. White, who patented the snowmobile in 1917.

Whippletree Winery is known as “the winery in the woods” where a welcoming relaxed atmosphere will be found. A wide range of award winning, premium wines can be enjoyed. These fine wines are handcrafted with minimal processing for maximum flavor...made the old country way.
