>Westport, Massachusetts is home to the largest vineyard in New England, Westport Rivers Vineyard and Winery. This was my first visit to this breathtaking vineyard and it was worth the trip. Who knew it was so close to my childhood hometown! The family operated vineyard produces white sparking wines, which includes Brut Cuvee RJR wine, the very wine that is served at The White House. My personal favorite was the 2001 Blanc de Noirs. They use two black grapes of champagne, which provides a great tart finish. Photographing the grounds was the highlight of the day, the weather was perfect and I look forward to a return visit.
