Truro Vineyards Storied History
Built in 1813, the farmhouse and its surrounding acreage was a well-run and respected farm selling grain and milk. Owned by the Rich family, the estate had a picturesque picket fence and a barn topped with a windmill. This, along with its setting between ocean and bay proved enticing to artist Edward Hopper. In 1930 he painted a work entitled Rich's House and returned a year later to paint Rich’s Barn.
Today, the estate’s warm, well drained sandy soil has prove to be a perfect spot for growing grapes. They grow right onsite and with the assistance of additional grapes from premium vineyards in Massachusetts, New York and California, produce more than a dozen varietals each year.
