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. Our 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 winery. – Description from AlexJelena

  • Hopkins Vineyard White Blend Westwind 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This is a semi-sweet white made from estate-grown Cayuga White grapes. A semi-sweet wine with notes of citrus. Sipping it, it struck me as a good summer wine - chilled and perfect for lazy summer evenings - and would stand up well to most summer dishes. Read More

  • Hopkins Vineyard Apple Apple Cider

    Snoothrank:

    Hopkins Vineyards Cider is made from locally grown apples using a traditional English cider yeast. Its a good example of a traditional cider - strong notes of apple both in the nose and the taste, and that slightly bitter after-taste that comes with yeast drinks. The notes of apple are nicely balanced and not overpowering. This will pair wel... Read More

  • Hopkins Vineyard Red Blend Red Barn Red NV

    Snoothrank:

    a medium-bodied red that is rich, smooth, mellow, and has a great finish. It has a nice nose with a deep rich fruit aroma. The Tasting Notes indicate Black Currant, and I while I must admit I dont think Ive ever smelled a black currant, I know its a heavier fruit, and you get that in this wine. The wine is made from what the vintner refers to as... Read More

  • Hopkins Vineyard Cabernet Franc Estate 2006

    Snoothrank:

    his is a medium- to full-bodied wine, dry, with a strong sense of minerals and earthiness. I also detected hints of pepper at the end. Its an interesting wine, and one that I think will grow more interesting if left to sit for a year or so. The wine is punch-cap fermented and aged in Oak Barrels. The Tasting Notes indicate that the Cabernet Fran... Read More

  • Hopkins Vineyard White Blend Vineyard Reserve 2007

    Snoothrank:

    a blend of Seyval Blanc and Vidal Blanc grapes. The bouquet is lovely with strong fruit overtones. The wine is a dry white wine, clean with a really nice finish. I detected strong notes of berries and - maybe - peach. The tasting notes indicate it would pair well with spicier foods such as Thai or Indian. Read More

  • Hopkins Vineyard Chardonnay 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This is a nice Chardonnay, light, fruity, but not too sweet. It would pair nicely with seafood, salads, light pasta dishes and would also be lovely chilled with fruit and cheese on a summer afternoon. According to the tasting notes, this wine is estate grown and 100% aged in French and American oak barrels. Read More

  • Hopkins Vineyard White Blend Duet 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The tasting notes indicate "You asked for a low-oak Chardonnay - and here it is!" The nose is crisp with hints of apple. The wine itself is a crisp, dry white wine with notes of tart apple and a touch of sweetness. It's a more full-bodied wine than the Chardonnay, and I can see it pairing nicely with Fall dishes - roast chicken and even beef. It... Read More

    The bouquet is lovely with strong fruit overtones. The wine is a dry white wine, clean with a really nice finish. I detected strong notes of berries and - maybe - peach. The tasting notes indicate it would pair well with spicier foods such as Thai or Indian. The Vineyard Reserve was awarded a Bronze Medal from the American Wine Society. Read More
