Stonington Vineyards was established by Nick and Happy Smith in 1987, when purchasing 58 acres in the Stonington Uplands on which wine grapes had been planted earlier in the decade. The winery was constructed in 1989 incorporating the latest in winemaking technology and the traditional methods of barrel fermentation.
From the start, Mike McAndrew has been the Winemaker, garnering the reputation for producing quality, European-style table wines that have won numerous awards over the years. Stonington is best known for its barrel fermented Chardonnays and its proprietary blends. We also produce, as varietals, Vidal Blanc, and Cabernet Franc.
Stonington Vineyards is undergoing a beautiful renovatin to offer our patrons the best experience possible. The winery is a romantic setting for a day of picnicking and wine tasting or as the perfect setting for your wedding or private event.
