The 1620 Winery in Cordage Park is one special place that serves two purposes. It is both a gorgeous venue for weddings, corporate events and other festive gatherings as well as the home of our award winning winemaking operation. Standing on the site of Plymouth's historic Cordage Rope Company, the 1620 Winery is an unforgettable destination for big nights, special days and quiet moments of sipping hand crafted wines. Whatever brings you here, we will be happy to welcome you with open arms and raised glasses.
The Plymouth Cordage Company, a rope maker specializing in ship rigging set up its operation along Plymouth Harbor in 1824. By the end of that century it had become the largest manufacturer of rope and twine in the world. From their sturdy brick and wood-built factory buildings, the company produced thousands of miles of ship rigging rope to support the nation's maritime industry along with binder twine used by America's farmers across the country. The factory even produced rigging used on the U.S.S. Constitution ( Old Ironsides).
Plymouth Cordage remained in continuous operation for 140 years. But by the mid 1900's demand for ship rope had disappeared and the company closed down. The factory fell silent. Over the next 50 years the antique mill buildings that were part of the factory campus were adapted for other uses, with one being converted to a winery.
In 2015, Bob and Raquel Mullaney purchased the Winery and began an extensive renovation of the building to both restore and preserve its rugged beauty and its historic character. The project was completed in 2017 and the new 1620 Winery reopened as a fully operational Winery, wedding and events venue.
