Woodbury’s Farm Winery
All farm wineries operate under the Farm Winery Act requiring them to grow a significant portion of the grapes (or other fruit for winemaking) they use on site. There are also some commercial vineyards developing in Connecticut that grow grapes to supply local wineries.
CT Winemaking... A unique story
The scale of the Connecticut grape growing and wine making activity is small compared with any of the traditional grape growing states. Every grape growing area, though, has a story to tell in the grapes they grow because of the unique soil and climate that area brings to those grapes. The activity in Connecticut provides valid input to the diversity that makes grape growing and wine making regional and interesting.
Growing Grapes in Cool Climates
Growing traditional wine grapes in Connecticut can be a difficult task because of the cold winters and wet seasons. However, experimentation has helped refine the cultivars (grape varieties) and techniques (trellising, etc.) that fit our conditions.
