Even when it’s raining, there’s no complaining at this winery, brewery with full kitchen fare
It might be raining, but there’s no complaining from visitors to the Newport Vineyards. Outdoor dining might not be possible, but that doesn’t mean you can’t admire the vineyard views while you sample the winery’s wide range of reds, roses, whites and specialty wines. Or, for the beer-lovers among you, while you sip a glass, pint or flight of Taproot Brewery’s offerings, from their Comet blonde ale to their Johnnycake Red Irish red lager. Choose from a full dining room menu from the Taproot kitchen, which means street tacos, pizzas, homemade sea salt pretzels, burgers and a variety of sandwiches and salads. Stop at the retail market so you can take home some of the wine and beer you’ve enjoyed.
