About the wines at Seaview Farm
Bringing wine and craft beer to the Seaview Farm Store provides a wonderful opportunity to further enhance the selection of our own grass-fed beef, specialty foods, and other farm products. As owners of Seaview Farm, we worked closely with wine curator Paige Farrell as she carefully selected wines, which would resonate with the space itself — a room in the farmhouse that has been in our family for nearly 200 years.
Paige took a classic approach, setting the wines of France and Italy as the foundation; and then sourcing synonym wines from alternate European countries, as well as from the Finger Lakes in New York State, and the vineyards of California, Oregon and Washington. – Ken and Regina Lane
The selection of wines on offer is just a taste for all that is to come, as the Seaview Farm Store continues to develop as one of Cape Ann’s local culinary treasures. We are delighted that the combination of our farmhouse setting and Paige Farrell’s experience and passion for wines of the world means that our customers will have a selection of wines worthy of this beautiful region.”
