Portsmouth RI/Newport RI vineyard and restaurant suggestions?

ljero | Jun 26, 2009 11:40 AM

I will be traveling to visit my in-laws in Portsmouth, RI (Carneige Abby) for a long weekend July 24-27. they are leaving it up to me to find some great restaurants, vineyards, etc. My husband and I are big foodies in chicago.

We usually eat at Mamma Louisa's here, which is pretty good. Our favorites in NYC are Babbo and for more casual but great homemade pastas, roberto's. they love Italian and do not venture out much past that, or american. We love unique dining experiences, such as dining outside at farms, vineyards, etc. such as outstanding in the fields (a roving suppoer club which holds dinners at farms, vineyards, etc focusing on local produce/etc. We also love hole in the walls that have some charm with great food, or something upscale is ok, too, but nothing formal/frency/fancy.

I would love to visit some vineyards--which are the best in the area? we love sauvignon blanc/pinot gris (crisp whites) or any reds. Dessert wine good, too. A vineyard that has a rustic charm would be great.

Thanks so much for the help!
