If you go ... Mass. wine & cheese trails

Pick up a Massachusetts Wine & Cheese Trails brochure at regional tourism centers, or check online at www.massvacation.com/pdf/winecheese.pdf. This itinerary samples Central Massachusetts wine and cheese producers open to the public on overlapping days. Others are open by appointment only. To follow the route in this order, take the Mass Pike west from Boston to exit 8 in Palmer, then follow Route 32 north to Hardwick. We recommend advance mapping using Google Maps.
