Wine Tip — 2012 Lake House White

While New Hampshire may not seem like wine country, Hermit Woods creates beautiful dry and sweet fruit or honey wines using local produce.

Wine Tip — 2012 Lake House White

The New Hampshire based winery, Hermit Woods, decided on making their own wines upon their wives’ requests. However, they soon learned that it would be more fun to make fruit and honey wines, or meads, only from local New Hampshire produce. Don’t run away all you diehard wine drinkers! You won’t even miss the grapes. As you can see from the winning medals, it was hard to choose a favorite bottle, but for a casual, warm summer day the Lake House White is a must. Made with peaches, rhubarb, and handpicked rose-hips that are fermented with a White Burgandy yeast strain, this dry wine is crisp, refreshing, and with a tart complexity. Enjoy this white wine with light summer foods like salads or simple appetizers.

  • I’ve had this wine! I couldn’t believe it wasn’t made from grapes. Absolutely outstanding. Next time I’m in Meredith, I’m definitely stocking up on Lake House White. Isn’t there also a Lake House Red . . .?
