This Waterfront Winery Is The Best Place To Go In Connecticut
Connecticut has its fair share of lovely vineyards located in the rolling hills of the countryside and if you’ve ever journeyed on the
Connecticut Wine Trail, you’ve visited at least a handful. In the far eastern part of the state, there is a winery that is quite a bit different from the rest. From its historic repurposed building to a picturesque location on the water, Saltwater Farm Vineyard is one of the best places to go in the Nutmeg State. Once you’ve visited this riverfront winery, you’ll return again and again.
Located on 108 acres along the Wequetequock River in Stonington, Saltwater Farm Vineyard is keeping coastal farming alive and well on the shoreline.
Established in 2001 at the site of a 1930s airstrip, the old hangar that was once home to planes, now houses a beautiful tasting room and event space.
The grassy airstrip is still maintained between the rows of grapes that are harvested each growing season and turned into wine.
Wines are aged in both steel and French oak creating a unique blend that is distinct to Saltwater Farm. Taste crisp whites, deep reds, and a few in between with subtle nuances you'll love.
Stroll through the vineyard while enjoying a glass of wine. This shoreline spot is overwhelmingly beautiful.
Gather with friends and family in the mezzanine level tasting room where wine barrels serve as tables. The heavy wood beams give the space a rustic and warm feel.
The riverfront vineyard has also hosted countless weddings. Brides, grooms, and guests are often awestruck at the picture perfect setting for this momentous event.
