Stonington Vineyards, a founding member of the Connecticut Wine Trail, is best known for its barrel fermented Chardonnay and its proprietory blends Seaport White and Triad Rose. We also produce Reisling and Cabernet Franc. Stonington Vineyards is one of the first CT wineries on the CT Wine Trail, located mid-way between New York and Boston. Soak in the beauty, stroll through the vineyards, savor our wines and share the memories!
This is Connecticut Wine Country!
At Stonington Vineyards we believe that the soils and microclimate of our vineyards are particularly suitable for growing the varieties of grapes we have selected. The vineyards are strongly influenced by the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and Long Island Sound, just a few miles to the south. Ocean water temperatures create a maritime microclimate similar to that in Bordeaux. We believe that low yields tend to enhance the varietal character of the grapes and improve the quality of the resulting wines. In most years, the vines are cluster-thinned to 2 1/2 to 3 tons per acre. At harvest, all of Stonington’s vineyards are hand picked to optimize quality. We have approximately 6 1/2 acres of Chardonnay and 3 1/2 acres of Cabernet Franc.
