Open: Year-Round

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 Vidal Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Reisling and Cabernet Franc.

Stonington Vineyards was established by Nick and Happy Smith in 1987, when purchasing 58 acres in the Stonington Uplands on which wine grapes had been planted earlier in the decade.
The winery was constructed in 1989 incorporating the latest in winemaking technology and the traditional methods of barrel fermentation. From the start, Mike McAndrew has been the Winemaker, garnering the reputation for producing quality, European-style table wines that have won numerous awards over the years. In 2013 we started our renovations and by Spring 2014 our Tasting Room will offer a beautiful new experience!

Great wine is made in the vineyard and at Stonington Vineyards we believe the same. Our vineyards are situated on south-sloping, well drained glacial soils. The proximity to the Atlantic Ocean provides us with a maritime microclimate not unlike Bordeaux with a long and relatively cool growing season.

The majority of our wines are sold from the tasting room with the balance sold to fine restaurants and wine shops throughout Connecticut and  Rhode Island. Our current production is approximately 6,000 cases annually.
