Are your kids in camp at Smugglers’ Notch? Are you looking for something “adult” to do while they are occupied? One of my favorite stops in Vermont is the Boyden Valley Winery, located a few miles down the street from Smugglers’ Notch. You can either drive there, or kayak there on one of the many excursions offered through Smugglers’ Notch.
Boyden Valley Winery, a family-owned winery, offers daily wine tastings. You can also purchase bottles of wine, or enjoy a glass right at the winery. I especially enjoy ordering their cheese plate (which comes with a glass of wine) and eating it outside on the grounds.
While all of the wine is delicious, my personal favorite is the Vermont Maple Reserve,made from apple cider and maple syrup. It’s such a light, delicious wine – perfect for a picnic. I also made sure I purchased a bottle of the Apple Creme Liqueur.
