Coronavirus Statement & Actions

Seven Birches is Currently Closed Open to the Public

After spending 10 weeks closed to the public due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have successfully reopened to the public for wine tasting, wine by the glass and picnic foods served in our outdoor spaces.  We are following the guidelines provided by the state of New Hampshire, to ensure the safety of our staff and our guests during this difficult time.  We will continue to monitor the safety of our open spaces and do everything in our power to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all.

Read about our Re-Imagined Wine Tasting Experience before you visit.  Cheers!

FREE Shipping on All Online Wine Orders Promotion has ended.

To our valued customers, we sincerely apologize that we cannot be open for you to stop in and purchase your favorite wines.  Your loyalty is so very important to us and so we have decided to waive all shipping charges for wine purchased online while we are closed.  Many of you are going to be isolated at home, and why not have a little wine to pass the time.  We are NOT attempting to take advantage of the situation.  Quite the opposite.  Closing will hurt our business, our staff and families tremendously.  We just want to do what we can to keep moving forward.

Thank you for being such amazing customers.  Stay safe, enjoy the wine with free shipping while we are closed.  We’ll be open again soon.  Cheers.

Latest Announcements

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

This past weekend, Seven Birches Winery reopened to the public after nearly 10 weeks of being closed to visitors.  The new operational plan was well-received and approved as a safe way of entertaining guests.  Following the guidelines ordered by state of NH Governor, Chris Sununu, service was relegated to outdoor spaces, which conveniently, was possible due to very nice weather and already approved spaces.

Both tasting rooms will remain open until further notice.  Safe measures will evolve over time as more guests are comfortable with the steps that we have taken.  Safety will remain the number one priority, with guest enjoyment a close second.

Given the continued “stay-at-home” orders and the slowed re-opening of non-essential businesses, winery owner, Mark LaClair, has announced that Seven Birches Winery will continue to stay closed to the public for on-site wine tasting until Saturday, May 23, 2020; Memorial Day Weekend.

Seven Birches Winery will continue to accept online orders for pick-up at our tasting room and for shipment to 37 licensed states.  Orders placed for pick-up are left on a table outside our winery inside RiverWalk Resort on the day that the pick-up is arranged.  Customers that choose to pick up their wines are urged to contact us to let us know when you will be coming, so that we can have your order ready for you.

Plans for reopening the winery tasting room(s) are very distinctly different than our customary tasting experience.  Read the Reopening Plans.

Our move toward “Virtual Wine Tasting” has been extremely successful and may be continued after we open.  IF you have not yet tried this new virtual experience, we highly recommend it.   FREE Shipping will remain in place until our tasting room(s) are back open to the public for service.
