Massachusetts Farm Wineries & Growers Association
Offering chocolate raspberry wines and more, the MFWGA has a great idea for a day trip. They handed out brochures with Massachusetts wineries you can visit. You receive a stamp for each visit and after 15 stamps are collected, you are entered into a drawing for a cellar full of Massachusetts wine! Visit the website for more information.
