Sharpe Hill

Although growing grapes in northeastern Connecticut provides us with the challenge of harsh winter weather, our vineyard (which is situated on a 700 foot slope) provides us with a microclimate that mimics many of the wine regions of Europe. In fact, our latitudinal location is comparable to that of Rome, Italy. Our vineyard's microclimate affords us the luxury of growing such vinifera grapes as Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc.

We planted our first grapevines in 1992. The vineyard has now expanded to 25 acres that include plantings of Chardonnay, Melon de Bourgogne and Vignoles for white wines; and Cabernet Franc, Carmine and St. Criox for red wine. We are continuing our vineyard expansion program with plantings of Riesling, Dornfelder, Gamay, and Landot Noir that will begin to produce crops with this year’s vintage.
