Priam Vineyards

Open: Mid - March through December

Priam Vineyards was founded in 1998 in Colchester, CT by Gloria Priam and Gary Crump, opening the winery in April of 2003. In 2010 the winery completed a solar panel installation making it the first winery in New England to be completely solar powered.

The winery has won numerous International wine medals, producing wines in the style of Northern France and Germany. Priam Vineyards' 40 acre farm sits in the Salmon River Watershed, with 23 acres of vineyard where they practice sustainable agriculture and energy. They grow classic European varietals: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, Riesling, Muscat, and Merlot as well as American hybrids: Cayuga and St. Croix. The rich gravelly soil, sloping hillside and constant breeze provide the perfect climate for these varietals.

Went there for the first time for their father's day BBQ and it was great!! Food was super yummy and the wine was very tasty! I had the Jeremy River White Wine which was nicely refreshing and sweet! Super cute atmosphere with lovely trees, nice little patio and everyone was friendly! Thank you, I will definitely be coming back!

Nice views, classy atmosphere. Pretty decent wines. Tastings are very structured with quite small pours. Great staff.

Recently I visited this vineyard and was delighted at how beautiful the setting is. We took a party of four to celebrate a recent business success to this place and had a wonderful time. The owners introduced themselves to us and their staff was very helpful in their tasting room. I loved he place. The fact they do not let people who have had a bit too much to drink makes it more appealing as a safe place. I have been to other wineries on both the east and west coast and have seen the results of large groups of people with one or two people that have had too much. I recommend Priam Vineyards for anyone that wants a very delightful experience, with outstanding wines.
