Crushin On Grapes and Lovin Massachusetts Wines

The Massachusetts Farm Wineries and Growers Association is a new revitalized group of growers, winemakers and hard cider producers from across the entire state of Massachusetts. Their goal is to advocate for the business interests of Massachusetts wine growers/producers whether they are new or seasoned growers. MFWGA also encourages consumer awareness of the handcrafted wines of Massachusetts and promote a positive business environment for continued growth and production of world-class Massachusetts grown wines. Coming to existence in January of 2007, in a short amount of time they've accomplished starting an association with a lobbyist on Beacon Hill in order to have a presence and dialog with legislatures and governmental officials that will foster their industry; creating a website and a traveling show that will promote their industry to the consumer and to new members of this growing industry; and working with UMass Extension in the educational development of their members.


I don't know about you but over here at Devour the Details, we love a good bottle of wine! After attending the Wine Riot, I'm all about participating in wine festivals. Plus reading and learning about the Massachusetts Farm Wineries and Growers Association has me really interested in attending their Crush Wine Festival. Crush Wine Festival is the premier local wine event in Massachusetts. You can join MFWGA in Marshfield, MA at the Fairgrounds on July 26th to sample the finest locally made wines and artisanal food from across the Commonwealth. Crush Wine Festival features two ticketed tasting sessions to ensure that guests enjoy a relaxed environment with ample opportunity to explore the unique offerings of each of the participating wineries. In addition to a comfortable guest to winery ratio, the festival offers music, food sampling, a wine lover’s photo booth and “ask the expert” opportunities, as well as, craft and farmers market vendors. The music area offers prepared food vendors and wine by the glass. Heaven on earth, as I'd like to call it!


Tickets range from $25-90 and are broken out by session. Crush Wine Festival participants must be at least 21 years of age with valid ID for admittance. For more information visit the Massachusetts Farm Wineries and Growers Association website. So get educated and show your support of these locally sourced food and beverage vendors! And more importantly, devour the details of every last drop of wine. We hope to see you there!
