About the Cape Cod Winery

The Lazzari family prides themselves on creating a vineyard that boasts 8,000 grapevines. They create a perfect environment for the wine grapes to grow by utilizing gravel soil atop sloped lands, and then look to the Cape Cod climate to work its magic. Grape varieties they have planted become wines like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Pinot Grigio, to name a few.

They blend different types of grapes and take the time to perfect their recipes to ensure flawless wines. They currently offer 7 kinds, including the award winning Nobska Red, which received the bronze medal at an International Eastern Wine Competition. It is a fruity, smooth wine which is a blend, featuring Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. They also serve a delicious Cranberry Chardonnay and a Nobska Cranberry Blush, where they combine white wine with organic Cape Cod cranberries.
