Spokandy is the perfect mix of tradition and deliciousness - the store opened in 1913 and the candy to this day is made following the original methods. The Murphy was how it all began - a whipped vanilla mallow center, which is then dipped in chocolate and rolled in coconut. They also sell many varieties of bark, toffee, fudge and a special recipe peanut brittle. A great gift for a sweet-toothed friend, or a place for some chocolaty indulgence - and best of all, if you stop by, you can try a free sample.

The Barrister Winery was founded by two enterprising attorneys - both of who were, obviously, passionate about wine. They started extremely small-scale, producing only reds, but as their success has snowballed, so has production. They claim that no love has been lost in the jump from home winemaking to a professional wine-making business - something visitors can judge for themselves in this charming tasting room. Along with tastings, the winery arranges regular events and can cater for special occasions. Call for more information.
