Meet the Makers: Fulchino Vineyard

Nestled in the rolling hills of Hollis, New Hampshire, sits a vineyard like no other. It’s known as Fulchino Vineyard—a place where a lifelong dream came to be, and high-quality wines are created.

The story of Fulchino Vineyard began decades ago when Al Fulchino was just a boy who would watch his grandfather do the beautiful, simple things in life, including winemaking. These early memories quickly became a hobby shared with family and friends, but Fulchino secretly yearned for more. He had always been fascinated by the art of winemaking and the transformation of something simple into something extraordinary, and he wanted to share this passion with the world. So, he bought a piece of land in Hollis, and Fulchino Vineyard was born.

Fulchino started this project with the intent to do everything in-house. It wasn’t easy at first. Al had to learn everything about viticulture, from pruning vines to managing pests. And he didn’t stop there. Everything meant everything, including building the vineyard buildings. But, with hard work and determination, a lifelong dream soon became a reality.

Fulchino Vineyard is more than just a winery. It’s a place where people come to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beauty of nature. Fulchino aims to be a breath of fresh air outside of the nearby cities’ hustle and bustle. It’s the perfect place for significant celebratory events—from birthdays to weddings—or just savoring life on a casual Sunday afternoon. 

The vineyard’s tasting room is warm and inviting, with a rustic charm that is elegant and welcoming. Visitors can also enjoy an outdoor patio in warmer months while sampling the wines, chatting with the staff, and learning about the winemaking process, not to mention enjoying the wide selection of cheese, meat, and artisanal dips they offer. It truly is la vita dolce. 

As the years have passed, Fulchino Vineyard has become a beloved institution in Hollis, even being voted TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice in 2020. Tastings range from $15-$75 based on wine and food selection, and no reservations are needed for small groups. It’s a place where people gather to celebrate life while toasting with glasses of fine wine and enjoying the company of loved ones. And it all started with one man’s passion for winemaking.
