is a boutique vineyard that specializes in fine table wines from grapes. Our products, processes, and labels are meant to convey our dedication to hard work, quality, history, and romance. With traditionally correct food pairings, our wines transform a good meal into a memorable one. Social occasions are enhanced by the inclusion of a favorite Candia Vineyards wine. And many a romantic interlude has been heightened by our wine.
Romance begins with New Hampshire's first Frontenac, LaCrosse, Noiret, and Diamond varietals. Our selections have been hand-picked to thrive in the robust New Hampshire climate. This matching of grapes to our local growing conditions, combined with our carefully developed processes for hand-crafting our wines, has brought us dozens of medals in international competitions.
We have the only world-ranked wines in the area!
To meet the discerning tastes of our followers, we are offering many of our wines by subscription. If you want to reserve certain varietals, send us an email and we will gladly hold them for you.
Our town is steeped in folklore, in which it has been told that a party of hunters in the mid-1700’s felled a fine deer, which they proclaimed to be charming fare. The town was then named CHARMINGFARE. The subsequent naming of “Candia” is for the Mediterranean town of Candia on the Isle of Crete, where a NH governor spent some time “on reserve”. Legend has it that he thought it was such a beautiful place that he renamed our town Candia when he returned. Our Vault Reserve wines forever immortalize this legend with label artwork depicting historic characters and our wine vault!
CV is situated on some of the earliest farmed land in New Hampshire, a rich tradition of farming that we are very proud of, and we feel is particularly important here in southern NH, where development pressures are so intense. We are dedicated to preserving our agricultural history by crafting amazing wines which prove our ancestors’ hard work, the bountiful & true foundation of our country. This heritage merits preservation, and we proudly do our part to show that hard work and careful attention to quality are worthwhile pursuits.
