Phone: (203) 284-0123
In 1997 dedicated to quality and creativity in everything we do and a commitment to sustainable farming, we meticulously and passionately began developing our vineyards. Some varieties planted include: Chardonnay, Seyval Blanc, Vidal Blanc, Vignoles, Chambourcin, Tramenet and Cayuga. Our vines bask in a valley surrounded by rolling hills and grow in a rocky gravelly loom. Our unique terroir provides the vines with great drainage and ideal conditions to produce exceptional grapes. With the goal of producing small quality of excellent wine from our own grapes to be sold primarily out of the winery the Ruggiero family continues to control all aspects of our wine making from grape to bottling.

Our Wines:

Production of our wines began in the summer of 2014 with three varieties of Apple Wine. Fruit wine, unlike grape wine, has a shorter fermentation period due to the lower sugar content of the fruits used. We are proud to offer eleven different wines, with seven in regular production. More wines are coming soon!

Staehly Farms is located in the scenic town of East Haddam at 278 Town Street. We feature a wide range of farm goods, grown in Connecticut, all according to the season. Christmas trees, annuals, perennials, vegetables and pumpkins; we have everything you need!
