The first vines were planted in the spring of 1984, a 5.5 acre vineyard consisting primarily of Chardonnay with a small quantity of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. From 1986 through 1992 the remaining acreage was prepared and planted, for a combined total of 20 acres. In the summer of 1988, the winery was constructed and Chamard became a licensed farm winery. The first wine, a 1988 Chardonnay was released for sale in November of 1989. Current production is 6,000 cases annually. – Description from markomkc

  • Chamard Vineyards Rosé Blend 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Very difficult to get a hold of due to labeling issues earlier in the year. Excellent wine, light and fruity. Makes great sangria as well. Read More

  • Anyone know any wineries in Connecticut that are 'can't miss' stops?There's a list here, but I was wondering if there was anything unique and worth having a look at- particularly around Mystic & Foxwoods and/or near Lake Compounce.  (Boulderdash!) Tanks  Read More

  • Chamard Chardonnay 2004

    Snoothrank:

    I'm not a Chardonnay guy at all. If I'm having white, it's almost always Pinot Grigio. I generally find Chardonnays to be too oakey, too sweet, and just not my thing. That said, the Chamard Chardonnay, a Connecticut white wine that blends grapes from Chamard's Vineyard in Clinton, CT with grapes from Long Island, is very good. Here is a Chard... Read More

  • Chamard Stone Cold White NV

    Snoothrank:

    A light, crisp, fruity flavor. Maybe not the classiest of Chardonnays, but a nice wine to drink on its own in the warm summer months. Read More

  • Chamard Merlot 2005

    Snoothrank:

    A blend of 80% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Pinot Noir, this is a lighter-bodied wine than either a California or European Merlot. The nose is earthy, but still has that tang that Ive discovered is very typical of Northeastern reds, particularly Merlots. Its almost as if the wine has a touch of salty sea air that c... Read More

  • Chamard Estate Cabernet Franc 2005

    Snoothrank:

    80% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 2% Pinot Noir, the Cab Franc is a lovely wine. The color is a lovely rich garnet, and the nose is soft with light notes of spice and berry. In the mouth the wine is smooth, rich and complex with notes of both chocolate and raspberry that linger on the palate. Like the Merlot, the Cabe... Read More

  • Chamard Vineyards Pinot Gris 2007

    Snoothrank:

    There were strong notes of lemon on both the nose and in the mouth, but there was also a disconcerting tartness, almost bitterness, at the end. It was also slightly effervescent, which seemed to play up the bitterness. Read More

  • Chamard Vineyards Chardonnay Estate Reserve 2004

    Snoothrank:

    This was my favorite of the Chamard Whites. A lovely, rich Chardonnay with beautiful fruit notes, particularly pineapple, on the nose and in the mouth. 60% aged in French oak and 40% in stainless steel, the wine has a lovely blend of fruit and a touch of vanilla from the oak. The finish is smooth and lingers on the palate. This would also pa... Read More

  • Chamard Chardonnay 2004

    Snoothrank:

    This is a more classic Chardonnay than the Stone Cold White. The color, while still on the pale side, is a deeper yellow, and the nose is stronger, with nice floral notes. The Chardonnay is aged in a combination of French oak (40%) and stainless steel (60%), and the oak provides a smooth, yet light, buttery finish. In the mouth, the wine is a... Read More
