DiGrazia Fieldstone Red (CT)

Looking back to 2012, this is a piece pulled out of the East Coast Wineries archives:
“When I was a college student and just in the few years after my graduation, one of the first wineries I visited (among those in Connecticut and New Jersey) was Digrazia Vineyards. As a young wine drinker, despite the finer wines my family drank (Nebbiolos, Bordeauxs and Burgundies) I did enjoy the lighter and brighter whites of some of the east coast wineries. And I liked semi-sweet whites. Once of my favorites was Autumn Spice, a pumpkin wine, which I later recommended in the mid-2000’s. It made for a great Thanksgiving Wine. Back in the 1980s there were few wineries, and Dr.Digrazia was one of the pioneers of east coast winemaking, certainly in New England, let alone Connecticut.”

Same Old DiGrazia Vineyards – Still a Winner

Looking back to 2009, this is a piece pulled out of the East Coast Wineries archives:
“I cut my teeth on local wineries back when DiGrazia was one of four or five wineries in the whole state back in the early 1980s. When I first went there, it was among a handful of small wineries that opened up my eyes to a whole world of new possibilities. I tried all their wines. And I am still a big fan of Autumn Spice. Still an absolute winner.”
