Trying to plan something fun for New Year’s Eve? Let the Newport Vineyards Culinary Team handle your NYE Celebration and/or your New Year’s Morning Brunch.

All orders must be placed by Tuesday, Dec. 29 at 5 pm. More info here.
Speaking of New Year’s Eve, we will have a roundup of what’s happening out there (honestly, there’s not too much) published on our website later this morning.
