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.
Had some in front of a roaring fire, with snow falling all around. Great with a nice chunk of cheddar and some bread. Very nicely done!
