Maugle Sierra Vineyards is a specialty winery nestled in the South Eastern New England appellation. Located in the rolling hills of Ledyard, Connecticut, on an 18th century, 97 acre farm just minutes from the Connecticut coast. Maugle Sierra Vineyards is just 10 minutes North of Mystic Seaport, and Aquarium, 5 minutes West of Foxwoods and 10 minutes East from the Mohegan Sun casinos.
Established in 2002, by Paul and Betty Maugle, Maugle Sierra Vineyards is dedicated to producing premium Connecticut Grown wines. Our first vineyard, planted in 2002 with St. Croix grapes produces intensively fruit forward red wine and dessert wines. Our second vineyard was planted in 2007 with St. Croix, Traminette and Cayuga White vines. We presently have 11+ acres in grape production and add more vines each year.
Dr. Maugle, co-founder and winemaker, is known for his chewy, jammy and intensively fruit forward wines. In 2006, we opened our winery specializing in our Estate St. Croix Wine and our dessert wine “Espíritu de St. Croix” as well as other fine hand crafted wines. Visitors who come to the winery for a wine tasting, a glass, bottle or case of wine are welcome to bring their own picnic lunch and enjoy our wine patio and deck. Visitors are welcome to sit back, take a deep breath, and relax with friends, family and wine. Take a self guided vineyard tour, stroll the vineyards and see the seasonal changes in the grape growing process. Winemaking questions are always welcome.
