Carlo DeVito, blogger of East Coast Wineries, shares an update from his recent visits to Saltwater Farm Vineyards in Stonington and Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington. He masterfully describes various estate-grown wines and informs readers of the background of each vineyard.
“I’m not a connoisseur, but I know what I like,” replied my husband as he sipped the 2013 Merlot, a medium red from Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington, CT. It was early November, sunny and surprisingly warm; a perfect time to take a break from the highly contentious presidential race and have a conversation that didn’t involve WikiLeaks, Anthony Weiner or conspiracy-mongering. We enjoyed a beautiful ride through the back roads of North Stonington, past the meandering stone walls that line the fragments of old farm fields, past the downtown village with remnants of the old mills, to the winery that years ago used to be the Chester Maine farm.
