Boyden Valley Winery

Boyden Valley Winery

Generations of the Boyden family have presided over this idyllic-looking Cambridge farm for more than 100 years, producing milk, maple syrup and beef. Several years ago, David Boyden began making wines from cold-hardy grapes — such as Frontenac and Seyval Blanc — that are more polished every year.

SEVEN DAYS: What kinds of wines do you drink when you’re not drinking your own?

DAVID BOYDEN, OWNER and WINEMAKER: I tend to like European wines more than New World wines, wines from France and Italy. Our wines are modeled on a European style — balanced but not super jammy or too strong in oak. Subtle wines that are really good with food.

— Corin Hirsch
