Laurita Winery

Open: Year-Round

About the Winery:

The name Laurita derives from the first names of owners Randy Johnson's and Ray Shea's mothers, Laura and Rita, to whom the winery is dedicated.

Production focuses on making wines from grapes that are recognized and accepted worldwide, concentrating on the Vinifera, the classic European noble varieties. From 1998 through 2000, the first 20 acres of Chardonnay, Cabernet and Merlot were planted; in 2002 the second 20 acres of vineyards received the cuttings for the Pinot Gris, Lemberger, Chambourcin, Norton and Zweigelt. The first harvest and bottling was of the Merlot and Chardonnay in 2003.

Laurita, with its structure and interior built mostly from recycled or reclaimed materials, is also an eco destination. The skeleton of the building, which dictated the size of the winery which is 20,000 square feet, was formed through the merging of two 150 year old barns that had been destined for demolition. The winery utilizes solar systems to produce clean energy for heat, hot water, steam, cooling and refrigeration.

Such an amazing spot to go for some delicious wine and even better food! We are there every food truck event and are never disappointed. The lines do get long for the really good food trucks, but that is to be expected if everyone wants the one thing that only one truck is selling. If you have never been, plan a trip soon. It will be worth the time I guarantee it!

Great winery. When I went they had food trucks, hand rolled cigar truck and a band playing. Great family place. They have a small playground for the kids to run. Also fire pits and picnic tables to sit around while you sip your wine. Definitely will be going back.

First time visiting today, and it was terrific. Inside area is relatively spacious. Also features dual bars should the need arise. Staff was friendly and happy to discuss the vineyard and their wines in detail. Wine selection was decent. We also did a tasting which allowed you to sample 6 wines from a possible dozen or so. Despite the frigid temperatures, there were some beautiful views of the vineyard, as the inside area sits atop a hill looking down at the farm below. Looking forward to returning when the weather is warmer and the grapes are in bloom!

Again, we had a great time at the winery, food trucks were great...I still think the price of wine is too pricey....
