Heritage Trail Vineyards is situated upon an 18th century farm, which once belonged to Separatist, John Palmer. The vineyard is located on Route 169, one of America’s most registered scenic roads. The six acres of established vines include varietals, such as Cabernet Franc and French-American hybrids such as Vignoles. Visitors are invited to taste the sumptuous wines within a restored antique barn as well as to enjoy gourmet treats created by Heritage Trail Vineyards President, media chef and author, Chef Harry Schwartz. In addition, the vineyard features a boutique batch gelateria, smoke house for Heritage Trail Fish, and a selection of cheeses for the new café. Visitors are also welcome to explore the scenic grounds, which include two ponds, a rose garden, and New England woods.
Tucked in the scenic rolling hills of northeastern Connecticut, over 2,000 carefully cultivated vines create wines to reflect the sense of living... strong roots, a tender touch, caring manner, nurturing environment, and a commitment to quality. “It's a philosophy that works for our family; it's working for our wines.”
Maine Wineries and Vineyards
Many of us from New England associate Maine for its beautiful coast, light houses and of course lobster, but how about wine? Below, you will find some information that might surprise you. If you get to visit any of these wineries, I would love to hear your thoughts.
One of the few wine makers in Maine growing their own grapes. The vineyards are set on 68 acres of rolling fields in the coastal town of Lincolnville adjacent to the north boundary of Camden Hills State Park. Cold weather grapes are pressed and cellar-aged to create varieties of white and red table wines. The winery also makes a Maine blueberry wine.
Stroll through the vineyard or visit the gift shop and tasting room.
For more than 20 years this winery has specialized in sophisticated fruit wines made with native flavors. Bartlett uses locally grown apples, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, pears and peaches to create distinctive aperitifs, whites, reds, and sweet dessert wines that
capture the essence of Maine. The winery is located in Gouldsboro on the scenic Schoodic Peninsula east of Mount Desert Island. A tasting room and retail shop are open May through October.
