Priam Vineyards, Colchester

3.6
#7 of 7 in Wineries in Mystic Country
Priam Vineyards was founded in 1998 in Colchester, CT by Gloria Priam and a former business partner, opening the winery in April of 2003. In 2010 the winery completed a solar panel installation making it the first winery in New England to be completely solar powered.

The winery has won numerous International wine medals, producing wines in the style of Northern France and Germany. Priam Vineyards’ 40 acre farm sits in the Salmon River Watershed, with 23 acres of vineyard where they practice sustainable agriculture and energy. They grow classic European varietals: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, Riesling, Muscat, and Merlot as well as American hybrids: Cayuga and St. Croix. The rich gravelly soil, sloping hillside and constant breeze provide the perfect climate for these varietals.

  • My friends and i decided to take our time and explore some of the CT wineries. Priam was one of our favorites...we arrived to music playing on the patio, which overlooked the vineyard, and felt like w...  more »
  • The wine is just okay and overpriced. The setting is scenic, but most vineyards in the state we have visited are more impressive. The setting for the tasting is okay, and you can wander out onto the t...  more »
  • We have been here since few times in the past several years and while we like the location, picnic area, and the recent updates to the facility, the tasting price is the most expensive of all wineries...  more »

  • Absolutely love the staff, the wine, and the company! The RosĂ© is the best in my opinion, it really does taste like a jolly rancher. The seating outside is cute, and the atmosphere is so relaxing!
  • Great experience at Priam. Cozy tasting room and very friendly staff complemented the incredible wine selection. Three different tasting options (4, 6, or 8 wines). Spring for the 8 wines - they are all wonderful. Each is unique and some were spectacular (I don't usually drink whites, but my wife wanted to try the 2 year oak Chardonnay. It was amazing). We visisted on a cold December day, wish we had come in warmer weather. The tasting room is in a quaint lodge and the property is very pleasant and scenic. Great winery.
  • Decent. Nice area, gravel driveway. Wines are ok, mostly sweet ones. Merlot, only bottles.
  • Staff is always awesome. Visit there atleat once a year
  • Overall wine and atmosphere were casual and enjoyable. Inside was small and meant really only for tasting at the wine bar. Outside had a nice cozy patio to enjoy with a cover and picnic tables on the hills of the vineyard if you want a little more sun. Wine tasting gives you three options to choose from allowing you to try a few to all wines they have. (Don't forget to check out the cheese far on your way in as well, on Fri - Sat)
