Winery / Vineyard · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
Recently named one of America's top 500 wineries, Hermit Woods is a small boutique winery and deli located in Meredith NH that developed out of a partnership between Bob Manley, Ken Hardcastle, and Chuck Lawrence. Together, we strive to make wine of the highest quality with the greatest emphasis on locally grown fruit and honey. In addition to our small vineyard, we work closely with local farmers and pickers to find the best possible fruit, ideally organic, to make our wine with. We then make our wine available in our tasting room and local wine shops and restaurants in our surrounding communities.

Some of the many wines currently in production include Apple, Crabapple, Blueberry, Mead, Kiwi, Peach, Pear, Tomato, Blackberry, Elderberry, and various blends of all the above. These are just a few of the many varieties of fruit we have experimented with. We seek to identify the depth and breadth of fruit that can be found in abundance in our local community and make the best wine we can from it.

On a much smaller scale, we purchase traditional viniferous grapes from California and South America with the intent of making available wines made in the traditional French style including cabernet sauvignon, carmenère, merlot, malbec, and various blends. The techniques that we learn working with traditional grapes have taught us the skills necessary to improve the quality of all our wines.

We are very passionate about every aspect of producing wine, but more importantly, we love sharing our wine and the experience we have making it, with our guests. We hope our wines bring you the same enjoyment we’ve had making them. Visit us at our winery or on the web at www.hermitwoods.com, or join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/hermitwoods and share the experience with us.
