Hopkins Vineyard Red Blend Sachem's Picnic NV

Member Review by MTB:

This is a semi-sweet red wine, with a strong, fruity bouquet. The wine itself is a light-bodied wine, and not one of my favorites. Our hosts recommended that this be served chilled, and I would agree. I didn’t find a lot of depth to this wine, and I think chilling it brings out the lightness and fruitiness. I think it’s well named - this is a good picnic wine for a hot summer afternoon.

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. Read less

I'm not much of a wine drinker.This wine was just what I wanted. I wouldn't call it sweet-it was tart and I could taste the grape flavor. It wasn't bitter the way drier wines are.I was pleased to see it was made in CT.
