Located in the scenic town of Goshen, CT and originally a working farm purchased in 1996 by George and Judy Motel, Sunset Meadow Farm, as it was known, raised beef cattle and hay. In 2003 Sunset Meadow Vineyards was established. Taking our years of farming experience and making the transition to grape growing and the producing of award-winning wines, the vineyards were planted on sloping, westerly and southern exposed fields, creating an ideal setting for prime sun exposure and constant airflow necessary for vine health. Today Sunset Meadow Vineyards is among New England’s largest producing vineyards.
Overlooking the captivating sunsets of the Litchfield Hills, the vineyards lie on 50 acres of rich and fertile soil which has a long tradition of agriculture dating back to the 1800’s. At Sunset Meadow Vineyards, we have a great deal of respect for the beauty of nature and the health of the environment. Therefore we pride ourselves on practicing sustainable methods of farming while growing and harvesting our grapes. The vines are hand pruned, hand harvested and maintained with extreme precision by our staff.
