Coastal Wine Trail of Southern New England
The viticultural appellation, called the Southeastern New England Wine Growing Appellation, stretches from Cape Cod and the Islands through the South Coast of Massachusetts and Coastal Rhode Island and Coastal Connecticut.
The common thread through this wine region is their close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and their Southeast facing coastline which captures the warm Gulf Stream waters in the summer and fall.
It is a cool grape growing region with most wineries there concentrating on white wines and sparkling wines.
The Coastal Wine Trail winds through the heart of the Southeastern New England Wine Growing Appellation. These 9 wineries can be visited in 2 to 3 days.
Wineries included on the trail include:
This is one of the most exciting trails in all the north east and one that has the firepowr to become one of the most impressive! The wineries are wonderful! A great trail. A great idea.
A lot of fun!
