Truro Vineyard can also be considered home to some philanthropists; donating $2 for every bottle of Right Red that is purchased to right whale rescue and research efforts. Red Right is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Sirah. Another wine Truro features is its Lighthouse Wine Series — which includes non-traditional varieties — is the Cape Blush. Fondly known as “summer in a bottle,” this light and refreshing off-dry rose blend combines 92 percent Cayuga and 8 percent Cabernet Franc for a hint of strawberry and fresh fruit flavor. The vineyard grows Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. They harvest the grapes in October and the Roberts family is always happy to explain the art of maritime grape growing to guests.
