So it's a busy time of the year for most of our Brewer, Distilleries and Wineries, and for whatever reason we are running a tad low on input. But I will have to say, my tow mainstays have hit me home runs again. Cape Cod Beer and Truro Winery/South Hollow Spirit I can not thank enough. They have stuck with me over the past year even when the times were lean. Please, if you read this and go, please let them know you read it here on CapeCodToday.com/Blogchowder and that crazy penguin dude the CapeCod Rockhopper. This will give them support that all their work to help me has not been in vain. And if you are around at any of the others places or where they are doing tastings please encourage them next month to help out if they can. So let's start it off with Cape Cod Beer. Amanda has sent me a poster of goodies, if my system will match with her formate we will have a wiener, if not,,, well,,, here we go ---
Next we have Truro Vineyards / South Hollow Spirits. If you are not sure where to find them Take 6 going east then north all the way to North Truro. When you pass the exit for Truro start watching on the left side for the wine barrel in the sky, just don't drive by it. You can either make the turn onto 6A and just about 1/4 mile up the road on the right or go to South Hollow Rd and take a left, the winery is right there on the corner. If you drive past it, find an appropriate place and turn around and find it. You will have a good time and good tasting. Ok, due to unforeseen circumstances you get me doing the report this month. So if I miss something forgive me. Check the web at https://trurovineyardsofcapecod.com or their FaceBook page at www.facebook.com/TruroVineyards.SouthHollowSpirits. First up We are open Monday-Saturday from 11am-5pm and Sunday 12pm-5pm. The Hollow Bar will be open Thursday-Sunday this week. Our food truck, The Crush Pad, will be open Thursday-Sunday this week June 8-11.

Did you know Tastings are $10 per person and include a taste of our Twenty Boat White Rum, our Dry Line Gin, and our Twenty Boat Spiced Rum. Tastings are offered every half hour on the 15 and the 45. Monday – Saturday 11am – 5pm, Sunday 12pm – 5pm. This is separate from the wine tastings. South Hollow Spirits now offers Twenty Boat Rum, Amber, Spiced and White as well as Dry Line Gin. This stuff is really good. Ok that about does it, take the short drive out and up I think you will have a wonderful time visiting and I know they will be happy to see you.
Finally we are have our friends from Cape Cod Winery in East Falmouth. Some of you may have heard they were dead and gone. I here to tell you that is anything from the truth, and they are up and running. So check our the new and wonderful things that the new owers have done over the last couple of years to bring this business back. Erika, yup she's the owner, want you to know: We are open for tastings in June Friday through Sunday and starting July we will be open Wednesday through Sunday). We have been very busy bottling our wines for the season and we have some new and exciting varieties such as our rosé mermaid water, chardonnay & reel red. All wines, including our cranberry and blueberry will be bottled and ready for sale in June. We look forward to welcoming everyone to our new location on 4 Oxbow Rd. and to a great season!
