Meet the Makers: Zorvino Vineyards

Zorvino Vineyards, located in Sandown, New Hampshire, is a family-owned and -operated winery that began as a hobby. Jim and Cheryl Zanello purchased the 80-acre lot in 2000 after retiring, planted a few vines in their new backyard, and spent time building projects in the woodshop. Four years later, Zorvino Vineyards was established. The “Zor” in Zorvino comes from the origin of their family name, Zorzanello, and “vino” is Italian for wine. Talk about a great pairing!

During Zorvino Vineyard’s start, they planted 150 cold-climate vines that were mostly hybrid. They have since expanded to roughly 2500 vines onsite. They offer more than forty different wines including reds, whites, fruits, blends, bubbles, and dessert wines. They are most widely known for their 100% fruit wines and unique Z lab creations but have a wine for every preference.
