Sixth Annual Winnipesaukee Wine Festival




The sixth annual Winnipesaukee Wine Festival returns to the Lakes Region introducing palates to dozens of wines from around the world and raising funds for two local non-profit organizations.

More than 100 domestic and international wines will be uncorked and ready for sampling at the Winnipesaukee Wine Festival on Thursday, June 23 from 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. in the Winnipesaukee Ballroom at Church Landing on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith.

Hosted by The Common Man Family of Restaurants and The Martignetti Companies of New Hampshire, the wine festival will feature wine, spirits and beer from local, national and international wineries and breweries. Tickets are $50 per person, and all proceeds will benefit CHMM Community Caregivers and White Mountain Foster & Rescue.

A pre-Wine Festival Beach Party at the Common Man's Town Docks outdoor tiki bar overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith will be held the night before on Wednesday, June 22 starting at 6 p.m. The evening will feature wine, tapas-style food and live music. Admission to the event is free and a portion of the proceeds will also benefit the two organizations.

Wineries and breweries participating in the Sixth Annual Winnipesaukee Wine Festival include Peak Organic Brewing Company and Cisco Brewery of Nantucket, which will feature their Whale's Tale Ale and Triple 8 martinis. Their martinis will be served down a martini luge ice sculpture created by Jeff Day of Not So Plain Jane's in Rumney and The Route 104 Diner in New Hampton. The event will feature more than 20 vintners, including Rombauer, Penfolds, Layer Cake, St. Supery, Seven Deadly Zins, Cannonball, Rutherford Wine Company, Robert Mondavi Napa Valley, J. Lohr and Duckhorn, among others.

The Common Man's Lakehouse Grille, Camp and Lago will provide hors d'oeuvres and food to accompany the wines, as will The Corner House Inn, Owen's Farm Stand and Coe House. Entertainment will be provided by jazz duo Don Williams and Dave Tonkin, and numerous prizes will be up for grabs at a silent auction and raffle, including a seaside getaway in Nantucket, an overnight stay at Church Landing at Mill Falls in Meredith and a getaway to an Adirondack-style cabin.
