For over 150 years, six generations of the Jones family have farmed their land in the White Hills of Shelton, Connecticut. The Jones Winery continues the family tradition of growing high quality crops that celebrate the great bounty of local farmlands. The farm’s vineyard and famous berry harvests allow the winery to create a wonderful selection of traditional grape wines and specialty fruit wines.
The Tasting Room is located in our renovated 19th century historic dairy barn. Guests sample six to seven of the winery’s distinctive wines and receive a complimentary logo wine glass. Guests will enjoy learning about wine tasting, Connecticut winemaking and the farm’s history in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere from our well-educated staff.
The Jones Winery is part of the Jones Family Farms, a wonderfully diverse farm that grows fabulous strawberries (June), blueberries (July), pumpkins and squash (October) and Christmas trees (December). During many times of the year, winery guests can enjoy a full farm experience by harvesting their own berries, vegetables and trees before their wine tasting.
Along with the winery, the farm boasts the addition of The Harvest Kitchen, an educational food center that offers cooking classes focusing on how to prepare delicious menus featuring farm fresh foods. A complete list of cooking classes, winery events and other farm events can be found on our website.
