by far the best winery and wines from ct. come from jonathan edwards winery in n. stonington.a beautiful place to visit and sample their ct. grown chardonnay,pinot gris,gewurtztraminer,and cabernet franc. also try their napa ca. wines which come across the country in refrigerated trucks and are bottled and aged at the winery. they will explain how the whole thing works as you sample these terrific napa valley wines.

Tasted a couple of outstanding wines this afternoon. The first was a 2006 Forman Napa Chardonnay. It has creamy smooth flavors of butterscotch, ripe pear, citrus, honey and vanilla with the right amount of acidity. We also tasted Forman's 2005 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. What a mouthful of delicious black fruit flavors! It has firm but approachable tannins, soft vanilla oak and a finish that stays on the palate for 30 seconds or more. You can taste these special wines along with many other exciting wines on Thursday Feb, 26th from 6-7.30 in our store. No fee, everyone is welcome. Any questions call 860-678-9777
