Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington combines the tastes of California and Connecticut. While all the wines are made on site, the Napa wines begin the crush in California and finish here. A tasting lets you compare the two. One of the larger wineries, Jonathan Edwards has 20 acres under cultivation and produces about 12,000 cases a year. My favorite here was a 2008 Estate Connecticut Cabernet Franc ($21).
