Our Winemaker

Charl van Schalkwyk grew up in the highlands of the Eastern Cape of South Africa. He spent most of his summer's in the wine country of the Western Cape, where he developed an interest for fine wines as well as a love and passion for viticulture. After backpacking through Europe for two years, he returned to Stelenbosch, South Africa to continue his education in Viticulture and complete his post-graduate studies in Cellar Technology at Elsenburg Agricultural College. His career and love for wine has brought him to several award-winning wineries around the globe, including South Africa, California and now Connecticut.

Tastings are available whenever the winery is open on a first come, first serve basis. Haight-Brown conducts wine, cheese, and chocolate tastings.  Wine tastings are Basic (six wines - $9) or Full Portfolio (ten wines - $12).  Cheese tasting includes four cheeses, each paired with a specific wine ($5).  Chocolate tasting includes four chocolates, each paired with a specific wine ($4). 


After completing a tasting, wine is available for purchase by the glass or bottle to enjoy on or off premises. Food is also available to purchase from the Haight Market and consume on or off premises.
