The Plymouth Winery specializes in intensely-flavored fruit and grape wines, ranging from Apple and Cranberry to Syrah and Raspberry.  Our grape wines are traditionally crafted using wild yeasts, which allows us to minimize the types and amounts additives (sulfites) typically utilized to control the fermentation process and to stabilize the wine. Our grape wines are cold-stabilized during the New England winter. Locally grown cranberries are used to make our signature Cranberry Wine and Cranberry Blush. Our grape wines are made with Massachusetts, New York, and California varietals.

The style of Plymouth Winery's offerings ranges from dry and off-dry to sweet, and many of our berry wines can stand alone as desert, similar to a port. Only Pilgrim's White, Bug Light Red, Bogart's Blend, and Mayflower Red are aged in new American oak, thus most of our wines are fruit-forward. We believe you have to sample our fruit wines to appreciate their intense flavor and characteristics.   Winemaker and owner, Linda Shumway, has won nine medals in the last three years.  Award-winning wines include Cranberry, Syrah, Cabernet blend, Chardonnay, Riesling, Raspberry, Blueberry, and Blackberry.

The Plymouth Winery is one of the few New England wineries to produce Diamond Wine, one of the oldest American hybrid grapes.  Made from a vinerfera and labrusca cross, Diamond Wine tastes like fresh table grapes used to before seedless grapes were developed.  Diamond will remind you of the intense jelly flavor of grapes grown in the backyard. 

Much has been written about the health benefits of drinking wine and eating cranberries and blueberries. Wines made from these berries contain the same antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that contribute to a healthy diet. The New England colonists made wine from fruit, using honey in the fermentation process. Although few wine-making recipes remain from the days of the Pilgrims, folklore tells us that the early settlers drank more fermented beverages than milk or water, due to sanitation issues. Cranberries, blueberries, and Concord grapes are native to North America.

The Plymouth Winery is located in the Village Landing on the Plymouth waterfront, within easy walking distance of Plymouth Rock and other historic attractions. We are among Massachusetts's largest wineries, producing about 8,000 gallons annually. Our limited space does not lend itself to tours of our on-premises manufacturing facility.

We offer free wine tasting for most varietals. Premium wines require purchase of one of our logo glasses in exchange for samples.  Our gift shop is stocked with an interesting collection of wine-related items. We ship wine directly to homes in many states. Please check the Order page for additional information and news. Or e-mail

We are family owned and operated.
