Food and Wine Magazine included Hermit Woods Winery on their 2017 wine guide of “500 Best Wineries in America”
Old world character meets new world fruit—each of our award-winning and handcrafted wines is made from a unique combination of locally sourced fruit, honey, and flowers, in some cases wild-foraged. Our process is devotedly hands-on from vine to bottle, using old world techniques with the highest level of care and integrity. The result is wine with rich, complex flavors. All of our wines are vegan (with the exception of honey wines), gluten-free, raw, and mostly organic to Best Management Practices—and an excellent accompaniment to a variety of foods.
The care and creativity that goes into our wines have resulted in Hermit Woods becoming one of Northern New England’s most sought-after artisan brands. If you can’t visit us at the winery, you can find our award-winning wines for sale at select, independently owned liquor stores and restaurants throughout New Hampshire.

Our Tasting Room and Tours
What makes us almost as happy as making and drinking wine? Talking about and sharing our wine with others. We love to share our passion for and knowledge of winemaking with our winery guests, making our tasting room not only fun but educational for oenophiles both new and experienced. Tour our wine cellar and get a detailed description of how our wine is made, a sample of a young wine out of a barrel or fermenter, and a premium tasting of a selection of our wines with tips on pairing with food.
(available anytime we are open)
Wine Tasting is $8 and includes your choice of six wines and you take the glass home with you.
Tours are $20 per person, includes a 30-minute tour of our winemaking facilities, a barrel sample, a tour button, tasting glass, and a sampling of six wines of your choosing in our tasting room.
Tours are offered on Saturday and Sunday from 12-5 every hour on the hour and by appointment when staffing is available.
Hermit Woods has recently added a deli to our tasting room. We are offering a light menu of charcuterie, seacuterie, cheese and salami plates as well as paninis and sandwiches. You can now order a glass, half carafe or carafe of Hermit Woods wine to enjoy while having a light bite in our deli or on our deck. We are also offering two locally brewed beers from small craft breweries in NH. In the coming months, you will find the following locally crafted beer rotating through our two taps: Concord Craft Brewing Co., Moat Mountain, Earth Eagle, Shillings, and more to follow.
