A History of Connecticut Wine

A History of Connecticut Wine: Vineyard in Your Backyard

By Eric D. Lehman & Amy Nawrocki

Wine has been meticulously crafted in Connecticut ever since colonists discovered wild grapes growing on their land. At first glance the New England climate appears inhospitable for this fastidious fruit but a number of varieties thrive here, including pinot gris, chardonnay, cabernet franc, cayuga white and st. croix. These carefully cultivated grapes have produced wines of unique characteristics and surprising quality. Join local wine enthusiasts Eric D. Lehman and Amy Nawrocki as they explore the intricacies of the region’s local blends, the vintners that craft them, and the people who taste them. With vineyards and wineries in every corner of the state, you’re likely to find one that suits your palate in your backyard!

Byrd’s Books will be hosting a special author event and wine tasting on Saturday, July 21st. Click here for details!
