Haight-Brown Vineyard takes great pride in being part of the Connecticut wine industry. In 1975, Sherman Haight established Haight Vineyard Inc. 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.
