Wines include Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chambourcin, Chardonnay and Vidal Blanc.

We plan to do a tasting at the Old House Vineyard, explore the vineyard grounds and then continue our exploration of some scenic autumn views and fall foliage.

Fall Foliage along Lake Pelham

After our winery visit, we will explore some beautiful scenic views and fall foliage by driving to Lake Pelham, which is named after John Pelham, a respected artillery man who served in the American Civil War.

The scenery is peaceful and air is fresh making a trip to the lake most enjoyable besides the beautiful fall foliage that surrounds the lake.
