NCR’s Winery, Waterways, and Chocolate Exploration
Our second annual winery event is August 11th.
What: We are pleased to announce our second annual winery event, this time with a twist or two. Harv Ames has laid out our route; hugging brooks, streams, rivers and ponds through southwest New Hampshire; where we’ll discover “less-traveled” (but not gravel!) bi-ways of the region.
We will wander to a lovely hilltop winery for a private Wine Tasting [ including cheese and crackers] plus a vineyard tour, then stop by Walpole, NH where Burdick’s world-class chocolates are featured. From there we will continue to a local casual dining spot for a late lunch. We will then skirt the Connecticut River for miles on the way back to the starting point in Hancock, NH.
But we are not finished yet. For those who have the time at the end of the drive, Harv and Doreen Ames invite you for dessert at their home in Hancock.
The beginning and end of the route is convenient to routes 101 east/west and 202 north/south.
When: Saturday August 11, 2012. Gather by 9:30 – 9:45 a.m. Depart by 10:15 a.m.
Cost: $15 pp. for the private Wine Tasting and winery tour which will be payable to the winery by each participant.
Where: Starting at the Hancock Elementary School parking lot; on the left, two-tenths of a mile north of Hancock center on Rte. 137. Parking will be around the circle in front of the school.
Registration: Early entries are encouraged as we need to give the winery a good estimate of the number of attendees and give Harv and Doreen an estimate for dessert. However, there is latitude for later entries if space is still available at the winery facility. Please RSVP your Social Chairperson with the name of the PCA members and any other family members participating (are you staying for dessert?) by August 3rd. Of course we want to see your Porsche but non-Porsches are welcome.
Every driver and passenger will be required to sign the NCR-PCA waiver before departing on the route.
Miscellaneous: There may be a bit of an en route “discovery” for those who enjoy watching for and picking out interesting sights along the way. Can you say “photo opportunity”!!!
