About

truro-vineyards-wine-property

Welcome to Truro Vineyards, located on Shore Road in Truro, MA and perched between the Atlantic Ocean and Cape Cod Bay. The rugged beauty of our small town is big: with miles of unspoiled beaches and dramatic sand dunes, Truro is a treasure. We love working here, crafting premium wines for your enjoyment and creating a peerless seasonal destination for visitors.

Each year we open our doors to wine lovers from around the world and we invite you to join us. Truro Vineyards is a family business, owned and operated by the Roberts family since 2007. After 40 years in the fine wine and spirits industry, with 20 years as a CEO of United Liquors, vineyard owner Dave Roberts retired in 2006 and began to pursue his dream of winemaking, enlisting his family’s commitment and support.

We are hands on owners. We run wine tastings, work in the gift shop, assist in the fields and contribute to the wine making process. We’re proud of Truro Vineyards and look forward to welcoming you. Enjoy a wine tasting under our new pavilion and take a free guided tour of the vineyard and winery, including our new state of the art barrel room. Learn about the art of maritime grape growing, and its yield of intense flavor and lush varietal character.

Come hungry—Blackfish Restaurant’s Crush Pad Food Truck serves lunch and snacks, and our gift shop offers an assortment of fine cheeses and accompaniments that you can enjoy on our front lawn. Find more information on our location and hours here, and we’ll look forward to seeing you soon.

Cheers,

The Roberts Family

(Dave, Kathy, David, Amy, Kristen and Stephanie)

Our History

truro-vineyards-history

Truro Vineyards was founded in 1992, and its main house and estate date back nearly two centuries.

Built in 1813, the vineyard’s Federal house—now home to our offices and gift shop—was first owned by John and Hannah Hughes, and later occupied by their granddaughter Amelia and her husband Michael Rich. The Riches cultivated the estate into a prosperous farm selling grain, milk, and coal. In 1930 artist Edward Hopper painted Rich’s House and returned a year later to paint Rich’s Barn.

During the 1940’s Elton and Margaret Rich produced magnificent cantaloupes grown in the estate’s warm, well drained sandy soil. Later, this same soil and site would prove to be a perfect spot for growing grapes. A working farm for over 200 years, the Truro Vineyards estate is rich in history and vision.
