“A winery that's quintessentially Newport!”

Newport Vineyards’ 50 acres of premiere vines are centrally situated on Aquidneck Island, approximately 2 miles from the ocean. Our vineyards are close enough to the water for protection against October frosts, yet far enough away to avoid the fog and benefit from the thermal heat off the land. The elevation is about 175 feet, one of the highest sites on the island. We are also blessed with a constant breeze, which keeps the vines dry and protected from fungal diseases and heavy frost. The site has some of the richest soil on the east coast: a deep, silty loam which drains moderately well, yet retains enough moisture to resist the need for irrigation during the summer months. Our new Nunes Farm site is a fourth generation family farm which has drain tiles down every row of grapes which rid the field of excess water and encourage deep root penetration, resulting in more full-bodied, complex wines. The tour begins outside (weather permitting) with a close-up view of the vineyard. Our guide will explain how grapes are grown and harvested. Next, visitors learn the step-by-step winemaking process. The tour includes an in-depth explanation of how wines are aged in oak barrels.  Following the tour, our guests enjoy a tasting of selected wines. Visitors enjoy browsing in our 1000 square foot retail shop. The store features wine accessories, clothing and gourmet foods.
