Handcrafted, Locally

Seven Birches Winery’s Story

Seven Birches is a boutique winery in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  We have 2 locations located within the grand new RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain and the Lincoln Village Shops.  We are crafting wines from classic grape varietals brought in from around the world, as well as locally-grown fruits.   We also make the cider for our newest venture, Rhythm Ciders, which will open a new location very soon.  All of the wine & cider production is done inside the resort itself, a 5-star mixed vacation ownership property with luxury condominium units and a plethora of amenities.  Just down the hall from the front desk, on the main level, is our winery production facility along with our tasting room and wine shop. Just across the parking lot is the Atrium Wine Bar and Rhythm Ciders Studio, all within walking distance.  We welcome you to visit us to taste some locally made wine and ciders, take a tour of the winery, and experience the grandeur of this majestic place in the BaseCamp of the White Mountains.   Read Some Reviews

Seven Birches Winery is handcrafting classic European grape varietals and locally sourced fruits into wines and ciders.  Seven Birches wines are produced under 2 labels, referred to as our RiverWalk collection and our Nouveau collection.

Our newest product line is our Rhythm Hard Ciders.  We source apples and other fruits from local farms, co-ferment those fruits, and sell them in our tasting rooms, with distribution coming in the near future.

Our Locations

We currently operate 3 retail stores in 2 main locations, our winery tasting room at RiverWalk Resort and our Atrium Wine Bar and Studio at the Lincoln Village Shops.  Both locations are walking distance apart and feature unique experiences, both indoors and out.

Our RiverWalk store is quaint and elegant with a beautiful tasting bar, outdoor veranda seating, and gift shop.  The Atrium Wine Bar is a little more rustic, still quaint, and perfect for that glass of wine apres-ski or hike.  And, the attached Studio offers spacious seating with a more laid-back feeling, soon to become our Rhythm Ciders Studio.  The Atrium Wine Bar also offers great in-town, outdoor seating, in the center of it all.

Our Team

It takes a village, so they say.  At Seven Birches Winery and Rhythm Cider Studios it certainly takes a team of dedicated professionals to produce, serve, market and sell our wine and cider.  We are all on our own wine journey and at the moment, sharing that journey with you when you visit our winery.

About Seven Birches Winery

Our History

Prior to 2010, Mark LaClair was a hobby winemaker, making wines at home out of all sorts of fruits. In the fall of 2009, while attending a local charity event, he gave a bottle of his homemade apple wine to the evening’s keynote speaker as a thank you gift. That gift sparked a conversation which led to the founding of Seven Birches Winery with his partners at Windy Ridge Orchard in North Haverhill, NH.

In 2010, Mark started his first commercial vintage of Apple and Blueberry Wine, followed by the first vintage of grape wines from South America in the spring of 2011. After quickly selling out of everything, he immediately knew that they had something special, something that would require more and larger tanks, and eventually, more space.

The fall of 2012, brought the construction of a purpose-built winery at the orchard to allow expansion. That new facility and tasting room opened in the summer of 2013, offering customers more variety, more space, and a far better experience. It was a fantastic venue for growing the winery for the next few years.
At the end of 2015, after having a successful five years at the orchard, Mark decided it was time to move the winery into a year-round facility in the bustling tourist town of Lincoln, NH.

In the spring of 2016, Seven Birches Winery moved into its new home at the grand new RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain, still under construction at the time. The tasting room and the resort opened that June.

In December, 2018, the winery opened its second tasting room called the “Atrium Wine Bar at the Lincoln Village Shops” across the parking lot from RiverWalk Resort. This second tasting room allows for a more comfortable experience on busy days, and a new venue to host public and private events.

In May of 2019, Seven Birches planted a 76-vine test vineyard in the RiverWalk Resort backyard. These hybrid vines will withstand the harsh winters and will ripen its fruit in the shorter NH growing season.

In May of 2020, an additional 220 vines were planted adjacent to the test site.

In November, 2020, Seven Birches completed the renovation of a new wine bar expansion space adjacent to the “Atrium Wine Bar” to make room for a growing tasting experience and to keep everyone safely distanced. Located in the Lincoln Village Shops, this once nearly abandoned space is alive with wine, food and good times.
