63 in the 603 highlights local businesses and artists that call New Hampshire home.
Lewis and Stacey Eaton started Sweet Baby Vineyard in 2008 after discovering their love of wine making. What started as a hobby for Lewis, quickly grew into a family business.
“Each season we take the kids to the local farms to pick strawberries, blueberries, peaches and apples. We decided to bring these fresh fruits grown at our local farms to our wine. We also turned part of our land into a vineyard, which yields four varieties of the grapes we use in our wine,” says the Eatons.
The family has outgrown their original, Kensington home-winery and moved to a new, much larger farm in Hampstead. In the spring of 2016, they planted over 2,000 new grape vines. Their new home has almost 8 acres, a separate building for year-round tastings, a production building, and a large, three-story barn for finished wine storage.
Lewis is the winemaker at Sweet Baby Vineyard. He worked for over 15 years building bridges, during which time he also returned to college to earn a degree in business. A love of wine and a desire to start his own business paved the way for a major career change. Stacey is the office manager at Sweet Baby Vineyard, as well as a teacher at a local elementary school. Their children enjoy helping in the vineyard and with the picking of fruit. “We are looking forward to sharing our wines with you and continuing to support our local farming and wine making community.”
