Our History

Haight-Brown Vineyard takes great pride in being part of a wine industry in Connecticut that is steadily building a reputation in the eyes of those who enjoy the world’s fine wines.

Haight Vineyards is Connecticut's oldest winery, opening its doors in 1975. In 2007, the winery was purchased by Amy Senew and renamed Haight-Brown Vineyard. The winery is located in Litchfield, CT in the northwest part of the state.

Haight-Brown Vineyard owns and leases over twenty acres for its winery and vineyards. The vineyard grows vinifera and hybrids including Chardonnay, Chardonelle, Marechal Foch, Dechaunoc, Marquette, and Seyval Blanc. Its current growing capacity has the ability to produce yields upwards of thirty-five tons annually.
