Bluxome Street Winery

I've been wanting to try this place out for quite some time!  I knew this winery was somewhere down the street, really close to my friend Brad's place and only like 20 minutes from me. So obvi we had to make pans to visit!  Bluxome Street Winery is located at 53 Bluxome St. and its open from noon-7pm Tuesday - Sunday, so you have no excuse but to go!  Its set back, off the beaten path, but that's what makes it amazing!

I wasn't blown away by their wines, but I agree with most of the Yelp reviews, saying to bypass the tasting and just get a glass, its a MUCH better value!!! One of the tastings is $15 and the cheapest bottle is $22...you do the math!

We had the Bluxome tasting, which you got 5 different tastings. They admittedly told us up front that they were very busy when we sat down. They were slow between topping up our glasses, but since we weren't in a rush, we didn't care.

The inside area was so cute! There were probably 4 or 5 high tops up front, a picnic table in the back and a separate tasting room. There was a party in the room that walked in shortly before we did. This place is dog friendly even though sadly we didn't see any there at the time!

We ordered the charcuterie plate that had crackers, salami, cheese, olives, almonds and dried cranberries...it was so good!

Before I came I didn't realize they ACTUALLY produced the wine there!  I heard this little machine start and had to go and check it out.


All in all, I'd totally go back! This would be a great place to start the day out at. Its quiet and has a great, friendly staff. They wines were good, definitely not the best, but hey, I don't claim to be a wine connoisseur, I just like to drink it...A LOT.
