Set on the northern shore of Lake Waramaug, Hopkins Vineyard, a
family-owned Connecticut Century Farm, proudly maintains a tradition
of making fine wines of award-winning quality.
In 1787, Elijah Hopkins, returning from the Revolutionary
War, chose this rich and fertile site on Lake Waramaug to settle
his family and start the Hopkins Farm. Our farm has witnessed many
diversified forms of agriculture over the years including the raising
of sheep, race horses, grain crops, tobacco, and in the more recent
past dairy farming. In 1979, the first vines were planted and our
19th century barn was converted into a state-of-the-art winery.
