Dunhams Run

The Saint John river, on top of featuring hundreds of miles of beautiful coastline, warm fresh waters, and excellent sailing given the prevailing winds and the shape of its bays and lakes, offers a number of wineries adjacent to shore.

We much enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of the owners at Dunhams Run winery, and ended up returning a couple of days later for Brit comedian James Mullinger's stand-up act at Dunhams.

Dunhams is all estate-grown, estate-bottled, and we thought all blends and varietals were very good; Frontenac is the core grape at Dunhams.  All grapes are hybrid, as traditional ones would die in the winter; we particularly enjoyed the creativity of the wines and took to Peregrinus a mead and a mead/wine blend.
