Newport County is home to some of the finest award-winning vineyards in the northeast. All of these vineyards are within a 45-minute drive of downtown Newport, making them easily accessible to most visitors. Take some time and explore the natural beauty of these vineyards, where our local climate mimics that of a famous wine-producing region in France. You can even make a day trip to all the vineyards as part of a tour and sample something from each vineyard along the way.
