DiGrazia Vineyards was founded in 1978 with a planting of a forty-five acre vineyard. The winery was founded in 1984, with an initial release of four brands of wine. Over 15 wines are offered, ranging from dry to sweet, using estate grown grapes, local fruit and honey.
DiGrazia Vineyards grows premium French Hybrid grape varieties exclusively. The two vineyard sites are established on high sloping hills to maximize growing potential and grapes grown lead to crisp, flavorful wines. Nine varieties of premium hybrid and native American wine grapes are planted.
The winery makes a full range of estate bottled table wines from dry to sweet, no sulfite wines, late harvest, ice wines, dessert wines, pumpkin wines, white port and ruby port as well as Connecticut grown blueberry and Connecticut grown pear dessert wines. Winemaker Paul DiGrazia has become known for his unusual and innovative wine-making flair.
Visitors can enjoy a guided winery tour and wine tasting, country gift shop and picnic area on the arbor patio.
