Winery / Vineyard
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.

  • Can in for a glass of red wine. Only 2 to choose from and neither were very good but they were damn expensive. Took a while to get served too. Pass on this place.  more »

  • 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)
  • Absolutely gorgeous and staff is amazing. Can't wait for wedding day!
  • Excellent wines. Friendly staff. Picnic area
  • We have been to this vinyard many times, great place to go after stocking up at Cato corner with some cheese. My fiance and I are getting married in September and we requested to take our first look photos on their premises. When my fiance called she was greeted by an extremely rude staff member. He told her that it was insulting for her to ask to take photos at the vineyard without having our reception there. All we wanted was some lovely first look photographs and we were met with disapointment. We were avid supporters of this vineyard and will never return and will share that sentiment with friends and family. Very rude and disrespectful, will not recommend this venue for any event.
  • This is our favorite Connecticut vineyard, out of all 25 on the wine trail. They consistently make the best wine and they have no weak spots among their offerings. At most other vineyards we only find 1-2 wines we really enjoy. Also, the owner/winemaker is almost always there and he is a super friendly guy that reminds me of Bill Clinton. He's a character. The wine tastings are a little overpriced but you only need to do that once to find your favorites.
