Established in 1997, it is a family owned and operated winery nestled among 65 acres of rolling hills. Planting its first vineyard that year the Ruggiero family witnesses the start of their lifelong dream to own and operate a family vineyard and winery. After 14 years of operating solely as a vineyard, supplying wine grapes to several Connecticut wineries, the Ruggiero's are proud to open their new winery and Tasting Room for all to share some time in paradise. The intimate Tuscan-boutique-style winery has a handcrafted copper bar, decorative chandeliers and mahogany tables which provide a romantic setting to enjoy the countryside.

Albert and Richard Ruggiero bring 30 years of winemaking experience to the winery. Richard's daughter, Margaret now oversees the winemaking blending her father and uncle's experience and incorporating her own knowledge into every bottle.
