Connecticut is becoming a prominent wine-producing state and established the Connecticut Wine Trail & Passport Program to promote the many vineyards and wineries across the state.

The first vines were planted in 1984, a 5½ acre vineyard of mostly Chardonnay along with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. From 1986 to 1992 the remaining acreage was planted for a total of 20 acres. Winery was built in 1988 using fieldstones from the property, to produce the first 1988 Chardonnay. Chamard’s winemaking process combines traditional hands-on methods with modern equipment. Over the years, the vineyard acreage was expanded, and other varieties added. In 2005, Chamard was purchased by the Rothberg family who are committed to making the Chamard Vineyard a premier Connecticut destination.
