In 1979, Bill and Judith Hopkins transformed their dairy farm into a vineyard, one of the first in what has become a thriving Connecticut industry. Since then, it has consistently produced award-winning whites, reds and sparkling wines. Hopkins Vineyard grows 11 varieties of grapes in a spectacular setting overlooking Lake Waramaug.
With firsthand experience of what it takes to operate a family-owned business, a taste for good drink, and the good fortune to live in this gorgeous corner of the country called Connecticut, David and Jack Baker decided to launch Litchfield Distillery. They’re commitment is to distill the finest spirits in small batches sourcing the best ingredients from local farmers.
Haight-Brown Vineyard takes great pride in being part of the Connecticut wine industry. In 1975, Sherman Haight established Haight Vineyard as the first vineyard in Connecticut to successfully produce fine wine grapes (Chardonnay and Riesling). In 1976, Sherman contracted an architect to build a large Tudor style winery on top of Chestnut Hill in Litchfield. Sherman petitioned the state to create legislation recognizing farm wineries in Connecticut and as a result, the structure and the surrounding vineyards became Haight Vineyard, the first vineyard to have an established winery in the state of Connecticut.
As a farm brewery, surroundings and experiences inform much of what Kent Falls Brewing does. They aim to produce beer reflective of the land around, the people that occupy it and the culture they wish to promote. The brewery sits on a 50 acre diversified farm, focused on pasture-raised poultry and pork, along with an acre of hops and acre and a half of cider apples destined for Neversink Spirits, their distillery located in Port Chester, NY.
Spring Hill Vineyards grow on a historic farm dating to the 18th century located along the banks of the Shepaug River in New Preston, Connecticut. Nestled among rolling hills and hay fields, our hidden valley offers a unique micro-climate, featuring southwestern facing slopes with rocky, well-drained soils and moderated weather influenced by the river itself. These characteristics provide a distinctive terroir for our vines, which we began planting in 2006.
