Enjoy a Wine or Two in Bahamas’ First Winery

Have you ever been to the Bahamas?  Or are you planning to go to? Then, you should try visiting the Bahama Barrels. The Bahamas is worldly renowned for its marvelous beaches and extravagant clear waters where you can enjoy plenty of activities involving the ocean. You should carry the wine luggage as Bahama Barrels offers you a different kind of twist in your experience in the Bahamas.

Between the busy and crowded city of Nassau, one hotel is starting to make a name for itself around the globe as the unusual wine hotspot of the Bahamas. It’s the first ever winery that opened in the country. The place is located at a downtown area of West Hill Street in Nassau. Bahama barrels are attached to the Graycliff Hotel but the winery itself is housed in a pleasant 1937 church and covenant built by the Sisters of Charity. Bahama Barrels is open daily from 9 am to 5 pm (except Christmas Day).

Grapes, which was used as the main ingredient for making wine is not grown in the archipelago since the fruit cannot grow with the islands’ climate and temperature. Instead, owners import different kinds of grapes from different countries which they, in turn, describe as a “truly unique Bahamian experience”.

At the Bahama Barrels, guests can try and taste wines from all across the globe and choose from a wide selection of wine that is guaranteed to be high class and delectable.

Not only that this place lets you taste their beautifully made wine but you can also involve yourself in the distillation process of making wine by booking their very own wine blending course which lasts for about an hour. This is truly an exciting and unique experience to try in the Bahamas aside from enjoying yourself with the beach – you would be blending your own wine that suits your taste and feels.

The blending course will be taught by an incredibly experienced Californian winemaker who was involved with winemaking for over 20 years. He will guide and help you through the nuances of wine tannins, acidity, balance, and finish of winemaking. After the course, you can proudly boast your very own wine which you made yourself.

It is only just that Bahamas’ first and only winery be located in Nassau. As the country’s only city, Bahama Barrels will doggedly leave a mark to its guests. In contrast with the usual norm that the Bahamas only offers exciting experiences with its magnificent beaches, you can, in fact, also enjoy plenty of new and unique activities like the winemaking in Bahama Barrels.

Surely, you will have no regret in visiting this place. Not only that you can taste flavorful and mouth-watering wines but you can also have your very own wine in luggage as you go back to your place. You can then show off to your friends and family the wine that you made yourself or just invite them to come and visit Bahama Barrels so they would experience the priceless excitement that you experienced when they come to the Bahamas.
