We have had an incredible season of events at Chamard Vineyard this year, hosting a number of social events, showers, birthday parties, corporate meetings/retreats, intimate dinner parties and amazingly gorgeous, detailed weddings.  We are super excited about many changes that have taken place at the winery over the past year, including a newly refurbished barn, new slate floor in the red barrel and tank rooms and over the crush pad, new vines have been planted with many interesting varietals and the events calendar with music and entertainment on the weekends continues to grow.  It really has become a destination on the CT shoreline, and we are so excited to partner with such a great group of people in coordinating all of the weddings there.

For my Friday wine tasting I thought I would share with you my latest favorite at the winery, the Chamard Riesling.  It is the perfect white wine as we transition into fall, not too sweet, perfect acidity, and absolutely delicious with sharp cheddar cheese, or apple pie.
