The Vineyard at Strawberry Ridge is located on 22 acres of hilly terrain overlooking Lake Waramaug in northwestern Connecticut. Until September 2007, production was limited to the award winning "Ascot Reserve" Chardonnay, a wine styled after the great white wines of the Burgundy region of France, and the "Ascot Reserve" Cabernet Sauvignon that derives its special quality from a blending of west coast and east coast cabernet. We are now pleased to introduce "Ascot Reserve" Merlot. This is produced from selected grapes of the heralded 2005 Napa Valley vintage. The crush, barrel aging and bottling, is performed under our supervision at a modern off premise facility in North Stonington, Connecticut.
