Each of our wines is carefully created with passion and attention to detail. Using only the finest ingredients, we are constantly experimenting and improving the quality of our products. Because we love the history of our farm and the farming culture in our area, we have named each of our wines after a local farm which we believe has played an important role in the history of our region.
THE TASTING ROOM
Converted from a saltbox style garage built over 100 years ago, our tasting room is now a luxurious space designed to give an experience as fine as our wines. Come in to try our wine in this modern rural setting, or purchase wine by the bottle to enjoy at home!
Located in the scenic town of Scotland, CT, The Vineyard at Hillyland is a family-owned business offering a selection of signature wines which are meticulously crafted from grapes grown right here on our premises. Every step of creating our wine is given the highest level of care to ensure that each bottle carries a sensational experience for the consumer.
While our winery is one of the newest in Connecticut, our farm has a rich agricultural history. Hillyland Farm began as a dairy farm in the 19th century, and was bought by the Stearns family in 1970. After spending decades in the dairy industry, our owners Doug and Geri decided to transition into the world of wine and planted the first vines in 2007. Nearly ten years later, our doors opened for business, and we couldn't be more thrilled to be able to offer fine local wine to our community as well as visitors from places near and far.
