Priam Salmon River White


Priam Vineyards sits in the Salmon River watershed area, just minutes from Mohegan Sun Casino, Moodus Resort area, The Goodspeed Opera House, and a number of state parks, as well as the Airline Hiking Trail.

Priam Vineyards' 40 acre farm has 24 acres of grapes in production, with a breathtaking 35 mile view of the New England countryside. They benefit from the unique microclimate of the hills of New London County, just 15 miles from Long Island Sound. They grow Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, Riesling, Muscat and Merlot as well as French-American hybrids: Cayuga and St. Croix.

Salmon River White is a barrel fermented off-dry Chardonnay blend. Soft, with notes of smoky oak. Peach & honeydew melon come through as promised. Lot's fruit. Clean. Crisp. A nice light white!
