It’s All About the Wine: White Mountains Crush Festival

Posted by Katelyn Michaud on Aug 27, 2018 1:31:44 PM

Dating back to the days of ancient Rome, grape stomping has been a harvest tradition in Europe. Even today, many small vineyards across the world host grape stomping events every year after the harvest. For centuries, small vineyards would gather all their family and friends and handpick the grapes off the vines. After the vines have been stripped bare of their fruit, a large celebration would be held to celebrate the end of the harvest. Tables would be set with platters upon platters of food, the wine would pour freely, and everyone would gather around the table at sunset and share stories of the day. In some vineyards, the dinner celebration would end in a grape fight.

Up here in the mountains of New Hampshire, we experience a few quiet times of year. These, we feel, are well-earned after the bustling months of summer and fall, when our streets and attractions are brimming with visitors from around the world, and the adventure of a cold, snowy winter, when outdoor enthusiasts make the trek up Interstate 93 to visit our alpine ski areas and snowmobiling trails.

Cut Your Own Christmas Tree and Other New Holiday Traditions!

Posted by Christa Peoples on Oct 3, 2017 9:38:28 AM

This blog post is part of "The Guide to Winter Activities in The White Mountains" blog series.

The most magical time of the year is approaching, and we all know what that means: decorating the Christmas tree, holiday parties, gift exchanges, eggnog for some and hot apple cider for others, horse-drawn wagon rides and sled-dog tours!

Right now is the perfect time to start planning a pre-holiday getaway with your family. Kick off the holiday season with a few days of time spent together on some of the most memorable holiday traditions. These activities are things you can do just once... but we think it's pretty likely you will want to repeat them for years to come.

What better way to get in the holiday spirit than to head out as a family, and work together to find and cut the perfect Christmas tree for your home? It’s time for the holidays in the mountains!
