Western Connecticut Highlands
Western Connecticut Highlands is an American Viticultural Area (AVA), covering roughly one million acres. There are 15 wineries in this area, most of them produce less than 2500 cases annually.

Varieties range from classics such as Chardonnay, Merlot and Riesling to hybrids such as Marechal Foch, Marquette and Seyval Blanc; fruit wines are made from raspberries and cranberries, while there are also small quantities of ice wine and sparkling wines produced. Most wines are fruit-forward and are meant for consumption in their youth; these are largely available for sale only at the wineries. (Wine/Appellations)
