SANBORNTON — With just hours left, Hermit Woods Winery received the necessary contributions to successfully fund their on-line Kickstarter Campaign. They had just 30 days to raise the $28,000 needed to complete their new tasting room at 72 Main Street, Meredith. By the end of their campaign, they had over 170 backers and a raised $28,980.
"All of us here at Hermit Woods are so thankful for all the help we received and cannot thank our supporters enough for helping us make this happen" says Bob Manley, owner and partner at Hermit Woods Winery.
With the added funds work has begun on the final projects necessary to get their new tasting room open in the next few weeks. With a little luck, they hope to be open by February t, but much will need to happen for them to meet that goal.
