A CONVERSATION WITH TAPPED APPLE WINERY

December 12, 2019

Tucked away in the middle of Westerly’s downtown is the Tapped Apple Winery & Cidery, where for the last couple of years has been commercially producing wines made of perhaps New England’s most popular fruit – wine. It’s a little gem, and well worth a visit.

Raise A Glass

November 1, 2019

The husband tried a glass, but the wife hesitated. “I’m not going to like it,” she said. But co-owner John Wiedenheft IV insisted.
