Some fun wineries to explore now that the mask mandate is lifted!

The new normal in Massachusetts is that the masks are lifted for the most part, which is refreshing news with the warmer weather on the way.  Now that our lives are getting back to somewhat normal, what is there to do?  There are some great wineries close by that are opening up and planning events now through the Fall and beyond.  Below are some that may be worth a visit.
