Fitch Farm Vineyard: Award-winning Wines
- Wine Menu
From humble beginnings
Warren planted his first vines in 1979. He and Nora had discovered they really liked wine, and concluded making their own would be more cost effective than buying it. Warren planted just 21 vines the first year, and it took five to produce a wine he would rate as "drinkable." From these modest beginnings, the Fitch Farm Vineyard grew.
The Vineyard Today
Today, vines cover much of the four acres surrounding the inn, and the vineyard continues to produce an excellent variety of wines. Warren has established a reputation for making top-quality wines, winning medals at regional, national and international competitions. The vineyard's 1993 Riesling won "Best of Show" at the 1996 Connecticut Amateur Wine Competition.
