Discovering the wine region of Connecticut

Connecticut is a state located in the Southern New England region of the United States, bordering the Long Island Sound to the south and Massachusetts to the North. Although it is not known for its wine production, Connecticut is nevertheless home to a craft wine industry that has grown steadily since the 1970s. Vitis vinifera and Hybrid grapes are planted throughout the state, and the best wines are made from Riesling, Chardonnay, St. Croix, Cabernet Franc and Vidal.

Sweet wines are traditionally popular in Connecticut, often made from Vidal and consumed by the locals. However, the fashion for Dry white wines established in neighboring New York is having a profound effect on Connecticut wine styles. Currently, about 25 wineries produce Connecticut wine from grapes and other fruits, including blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. The CT Wine Trail is well established; wine tourists receive a passport in which they can collect stamps at various Tasting rooms.

As in many U. S. states, craft brewing is booming in Connecticut.
