Hopkins Vineyard Off-Dry Cider

Looking back to 2014, taken from the East Coast Wineries archive:
Hopkins Vineyard in Warren, CT, continues to be a favorite of mine. Recently, I tried their Hopkins Vineyard Apple Cider Off-Dry Cider. This relatively still apple wine is made from locally grown apples. Lots of beautiful fruit up front. Nice middle, with bright acidity and lovely mouthfeel. Very pretty. A little different because it is mostly still.

Hopkins Vineyard in Warren, CT

Looking back to 2011, this is a piece pulled out of the East Coast Wineries archives. Hopkins is still getting better with age:
Back in the day, when I was first started going to wineries, more than 20 years ago (gulp! is it that long ago?) I took my then girlfriend and another friend, and we drove up Route 7 to Hopkins Vineyards in 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.
