What is the difference between a wine and a spirit? At the Winery at Marjim Manor, wine is what you taste; spirits are who you meet. As you taste our fruit and grape wines, you will hear stories about the former residents. Shubal Scudder Merritt built the manor in the 1800s, the same home where he accidentally shot and killed his son Lewis. In the very doorway where Lewis died, staff have seen a Victorian boy standing and visitors have overheard the ghostly question, “Who’s in my house?” Guests are welcome to taste wines and hear more of the manor’s haunted tales, such as lights that turn on by themselves, and wine bottles that fall off shelves.
If you are a “Pear Made in Heaven” and wanted to live “Applely Ever After,” please visit the Manor. We always “Peach for the Stars” while we share our “Gift from the Vine.” Visits are a “Treasure Beyond Measure,” so please come soon.
