We went to Newton Vineyard for their wine pairing. We received a very gracious welcome, and informative tour of a beautiful location, and a great pairing experience. We enjoy the wineries that offer pairings so we can see how the wines could pair with food and because the chefs at the wineries tend to be great. At Newton the $40 we spent on the pairing meal was worth it and gave us ideas of recipes we could create at home. Newton's unfiltered wines are delicious and I would recommend this experience to anyone. I would not, however, recommend joining the wine club. After the meal we got the sales pitch on the club and the benefits of joining while we were there. We bit. I got our first club shipment today and realized that, with the club discount, I was still paying more than it would cost me to buy the wine at our local merchant. What really did it, though, was the cellar wine they sent, a 2002 unfiltered cab, for which we were charged $110. Look it up on line and you'll see you can get it for under $50. The winery was just sold and went corporate. I think greed is taking over. Too bad.
