Wines crafted from Connecticut and California
Jonathan Edwards Winery was created from the simplest concepts - make great wine and enjoy life more often.
My parents, Karen & Bob, and I made that commitment to this concept. As New Englanders, our early focus was on the emerging wine industry of the North East, and our commitment to making the best wines possible expanded our horizons nationally. In 1999, the continued thirst for knowledge and expertise took us to beautiful Napa Valley, and in 2000 we enjoyed our first harvest. As grapes were crushed and young wine fermented, the reality of Jonathan Edwards Winery truly began to take shape. Since that time, we haven't missed a harvest and we continue to have access to some of the best vineyards in America.
"9.23.22 The grounds are immaculate and well taken care of with many spots for outdoor seating. Perfect for sunny days. The indoors is nice and cozy with friendly staff. Everyone has different tastes in wine so I suggest you try a "tasting" so you can sample a few. I for example, prefer reds. Also bought a Sauvignon Blanc for a friend's bday and she liked it. Beautiful area with great wines".
"Jonathan Edwards winery is located in a bucolic setting nestled around the farms of North Stonington CT. They have a small tasting room but most of the seating is outdoors. The food selection is limited to cheese or charcuterie which is locally sourced. You can also bring your own snack. Let's get to the wine. Some folks love their wine and become members. I know many people who don't care for the wine at all. I'm no connoisseur but it tastes fine to me. I go to sit outside and enjoy the ambience. So go and enjoy. If the wine isn't up to your standards there are always other wineries on the trail".
"Thank you so much for a wonderful day and a great learning experience. We learned so much today and tasted 5 great wines, we will return certainly. We had a great education about wine, wine making and sugar content I wish I had that learning experience 20 years ago. We highly recommend this winery."
"What a gem in eastern Connecticut! This vineyard was recommended to me by a co-worker and we are so happy we listened! It was great! It was a gloomy and rainy day, but the sunny and friendly staff brightened the experience. We tried some whites and some reds and ended up loving the Napa cab. It happened to be $58 A bottle but it was lovely so we stayed and had a glass. We were told that the grapes come from a few different fields including the ones on the property. Well worth it to go by, and I'd recommend going in late spring or early summer when the vines are blooming."
"We are a large group of ladies (most from RI) who enjoy trying out new wineries. Jonathan Edwards Winery was a great destination. I highly recommend it. We brought our own food, sat out on the covered porch and ordered glasses of wine from the bar. Your server behind the bar was very knowledgeable about your wines and I was quite impressed. It was a lovely day and I ended up buying 2 bottles of my favorite red (2018 Merlot) and a bottle of Petite Sirah 2018 to take home to my husband."
"Had another wonderful experience coming just to pick up my wine club wines. Staff went above & beyond helping me and I am very appreciative. Looking forward to enjoying delicious wine that can be counted on for a consistent product."
