Haight Vineyard.....the first winery in the state of Connecticut.

Connecticut's oldest winery and vineyard located on 9.21 acres.  In 1975, Sherman Haight established the first winery in the state of Connecticut.  He worked with the University of Connecticut and Cornell to grow the state's first vinis vinifera in the form of Chardonnay and Reisling, 1,100 feet above sea level on Chestnut Hill in Litchfield.  He petitioned the state of Connecticut to create legislation recognizing farm wineries and contracted an architect to build a large Tudor-style winery building.  In 1976, the structure and the surrounding vineyards became known as Haight Vineyard, the first established winery in the state of Connecticut.  The vineyard grows vinifera and hybrids including Chardonnay, Chardonelle, Marechal Foch, De Chaunac, Marquette, and Seyval Blanc.
