Foliage, fall in New England

Nothing says fall in New England like apple picking and leaf peeping. Throw in booze, and I am one happy lady.  Nashoba Valley Winery is a one stop shop for a real New England fall experience. It is also the perfect place to please a group with differing tastes. Adult date or family outing, Nashoba Valley Winery has you covered.  Apple picking, wine tasting and even a gourmet restaurant are all on site. Apple picking itself does not last long, but the apples linger (depending on the size of the bag you purchase). After picking, sample the wines, maybe even take the tour through the wine making facility. Choose your favorite and buy it (chilled if needed) to enjoy while checking out the foliage (peak season is in October). Hungry? Pre-order a picnic lunch, or grab your picnic essentials in the wine shop: cheese, crackers and other must haves are all available right there. Then  plop yourself  on a grassy patch of the lawn because here  you have found the perfect backdrop for a fall picnic. Eat as you peer over the sprawling acres of apples and turning leaves. If you are with kids, there is plenty of room for them to roam while you relax. Not the picnic type? J’s Restaurant is a tough fall reservation to score, but well worth it; call in advance. All options are paired with Nashoba Valley Vineyards wines. (Photo by aliwest44/flickr)
