Our Staveleigh House guests love seeking out local producers. One to add to the list is Les Trois Emme Vineyard & Winery in New Marlborough, Massachusetts.
New Marlborough is a pretty little drive (they are all pretty here!), about 25 minutes from Sheffield. Owners Mary Jane and Wayne Eline chose the name to signify the first three letters of their granddaughters’ names: Megan, Madison, and Mary Katherine—the three “m’s—cleverly Frenchified to be Les Trois Emme.
The winery sits on a shaded lot with the vineyards in the distance, an ideal setting for the various functions that are often held on the property. Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy it here with a glass of wine.
The winery offers tours that include an inside look at the facilities and insights into the wine-making process. After touring, visitors can head to the Tasting Room to purchase samples of five wines with complimentary hors d’oeurves.
Les Trois Emme makes 12 varieties of wines. One of the more unusual is the award-winning Stingy Jack’s Pumpkin Wine. It’s created with Cayuga white grapes that have been infused with pumpkin and spices. Though it’s ideal for autumn, the wine is available year-round. There’s a story behind the name “Stingy Jack,” so be sure to ask to hear it.
Among the other wines in the company’s selection is an Old Vine Zinfandel that is deep and rich with hints of cherry and raspberry; a soft blended Shiraz-Cabernet; a Cayuga White with a punchy apple and pear aroma; and Jack’s Cranberry, an off-dry white with a hint of fruit flavor.
