Hopkins Vineyard – Warren, CT
Set on the northern shore of Lake Waramaug, Hopkins Vineyard, a
family-owned Connecticut Century Farm, proudly maintains a tradition
of making fine wines of award-winning quality. In 1787 Elijah Hopkins,
returning from the Revolutionary War, chose this rich and fertile site on
Lake Waramaug to settle his family and start the Hopkins Farm.
The farm has witnessed many diversified forms of agriculture over the
years including the raising of sheep, race horses, grain crops, tobacco,
and in the more recent past dairy farming. In 1979 the first vines were
planted and our 19th century barn was converted into a state-of-the-art
The unique location of Hopkins Vineyard makes it the only vineyard
in Connecticut with a micro-climate influenced by an inland lake; this
allows an extended growing season and successful growing of grape
varieties which ordinarily would not thrive in our northeastern climate.
Classic grape varieties are grown on 30 acres adjacent to the winery.
Annual Produced Cases: 7,000
Varietals: Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc,
