I've stopped by Candia Vineyards a couple of times now. My fiancé and I stumbled upon the owner's property on our way through NH in 2015, and we were pleasantly surprised and grateful that we did. The tasting setting was very modest, but we were blown away by the flavor and complexity of every wine we tried. During my most... More

We were driving through NH on our way to Maine and did a random search for wineries. Candia Vineyards came up and I called to schedule a visit…for ten minutes later. While the owner seemed a bit irritated, he accommodated us just fine. When we arrived I realized why the irritation. It's not a typical winery but a private home... More

We tried to visit this winery during the second week of September. I made two phone calls that went unanswered. We never received a return call after leaving two messages. I also wrote two emails that had the same response which was none.

Despite its unassuming location and small production, Candia is a very important winery for the NH and indeed New England wine scene, and owner-winemaker Bob Dabrowski is ridiculously modest in all this. A proud promoter of hybrids, both "old" such as the nearly extinct Moore's Diamond, and the new, like La Crescent, he offers a fascinating range of wines; which... More

The story behind Candia's Vault Reserve label is the owner bought a vault and installed it at his business. The sales and tasting room is the owner's house basement, where there is some production equipment and the vault, where the wines are stored. There are a few of each style - white, red, and dessert - for sample and purchase.... More

Our visit to Candia Vineyards was a disappointment, to say the least. The wine was very good, but from the moment that we arrived for our appointment, we felt completely unwelcome and were treated like an annoyance. We had questions about the process (being novice wine tasters) and felt looked down upon and like Bob couldn't wait until we were... More

Wow, what a difference going to this winery. We called with a difficult schedule request, and they accommodated us when most of the other wineries were closed, or wouldn’t, and we were pleasantly surprised that the winemaker personally poured the wine. A nice touch, and we found out that that it’s company policy for the same special service! So nice... More

This wine was very flavorful, but owner was a wine know-it-all snob. Quite an attitude for someone trying to appeal to customers.
