The History of Nashoba Valley Winery
Nashoba Valley Winery was born in 1978 when founder Jack Partridge’s interest in fruit wines exceeded his fascination with city planning. After producing wines out of his house for 2 years, he rented space in a West Concord mill building. By 1980, as the business expanded, so did Partridge’s desire to locate in an orchard, where he could grow a wide assortment of fruits for the wines. In 1983 Partridge found just the spot in Bolton. The rustic farmhouse was built in 1923 and was originally owned by Dr. Clemens, a chiropractor. The farm was then known as Upland Farm. In 1983 Jack Partridge purchased the property, built the original wine shop, replanted the orchard and established Nashoba Valley Winery & Orchard. From 1983 until 1995, Jack Partridge lived with his family in the farmhouse until it was sold to its current owners, The Pelletier family.
Today, Nashoba Valley Winery is Massachusetts's leading wine producer and the nation’s pioneering “winery orchard.” Situated on 52 rolling acres we currently grow apples, peaches, nectarines, plums, grapes, other small fruits, hops for our beer as well as vegetables and herbs in our wine sensory garden for our restaurant. With over 80 different varieties of apples, 18 different varieties of peaches and nectarines and now 6 different varieties of grapes (Vignoles, St. Croix, Lemberger, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and Riesling) the production of wines from traditional New England fruit remains our focus, but with the addition of grapes, we now produce not only great estate grown fruit wines but estate grown grape wines. Our first release of an estate grown grape wine was in 2008 with the release of Vignoles. In addition to producing 26 varieties of wines, 12 different spirits and over 10 different beers, many seasonal, we also keep a very busy schedule throughout the year with many different special events, festivals, and educational experiences that we offer to our customers.
Always growing and ever beautiful, from its beginning until today, NVW remains a family owned winery with our focus on quality and value at the forefront of all we do. Current happenings at NVW include: the number of bearing apple trees grown at NVW as of April 15, 2010 was 1,358. Since April 15, 2010 we have planted 3,138 new apple trees so the total number of apple trees now grown at NVW is now 4,496., JAAS kid friendly snack shack opened in 2009 with our restaurants walking wine sensory garden and smokehouse completed in 2010. Our current expansion of a new back tasting bar area and a new barrel room was completed in the summer of 2011. In addition, Nashoba Valley Winery reached a milestone in 2011 of selling 10,000 cases of beer, wine and spirits. Additionally in 2011 to keep pace with NVW’s growth and commitment to agriculture, it acquired an additional 8 acres of land in Bolton within a mile of the winery where Riesling grapes have been planted and a new 5,000 square foot warehouse facility has been completed.
