Bostonist: "Wining and Dining" daytrips, Part 2: The Coastal Wine Trail

Local wineries in the Bostonist, part deux!

This one includes the one itinerary I'd truly like to do:

Westport Rivers Winery, which recently received some press from the Improper Bostonian, sits outside New Bedford off Rt. 128, near Horseneck Beach. The farm is owned and operated by the Russell family, which also founded the eco-friendly Buzzard’s Bay Brewing. Guided tours of the vineyard are held at 1pm and 3pm on weekends, so take the early tour, get your tasting on, then head out to Horseneck Beach for a late-afternoon layout session, or make it a twofer tasting and stop off for a brew at Buzzard’s Bay on Horseneck Road. Grab a dinner of local cod, fried wild shrimp, or “heritage pork” with a side of mac ‘n’ cheese at beachside restaurant The Back Eddy.
