  • About

    At Stonington Vineyards we believe that the soils and microclimate of our vineyards are particularly suitable for growing the varieties of grapes we have selected. The vineyards are strongly influenced by the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and Long Island Sound, just a few miles to the south. Ocean water temperatures create a maritime microclimate similar to that in Bordeaux. We believe that low yields tend to enhance the varietal character of the grapes and improve the quality of the resulting wines. In most years, the vines are cluster-thinned to 2 1/2 to 3 tons per acre. At harvest, all of Stonington’s vineyards are hand picked to optimize quality. We have approximately 6 1/2 acres of Chardonnay and 3 1/2 acres of Cabernet Franc.
