Discover the charm of Connecticut's Quiet Corner while visiting one or more of the 25 fine wineries along the Connecticut Wine Trail. Sharpe Hill Vinyard, Connecticut's largest and most award winning winery, located in Pomfret CT, and Taylor Brooke Winery in Woodstock, CT are just a short scenic drive from the Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, the venue of all StarFest 2016 driving events.

"The Connecticut Wine Trail is becoming one of the most existing and fastest growing wine regions in the United States. A tremendous variety of wine styles and stunning scenery are to be enjoyed as you meander throughout our beautiful state. The Connecticut Vineyard and Winery Association’s blue wine trail signs will help guide you to the 25 wineries comprising the Connecticut Wine Trail.
 

The cool-climate of Connecticut's growing region allows for intricate and refined flavor development. Whether you are looking for robust barrel aged reds, crisp and bright whites or local fruit wines, Connecticut delivers. Although the range of wines statewide is almost limitless, commonly grown varietals include Cabernet Franc and St. Croix for reds and Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Seyval Blanc for whites. Vistors will notice the distinct differences that make each growing region unique. Despite the geographic variability, a common theme of dedicated farmers, passionate winemakers and timeless New England charm await regardless of where your trip takes you."
