About the farm:
In 1982 Bob and Carol Russell sought to re-enter the wine-growing business that Carol’s father, Herbert Grifenhagen, and grandfather, Max Grifenhagen, loved so dearly. Herb and his father had grown their upstate New York Germania Wine Cellars brand into a nationally celebrated sparkling wine. The Russell couple dreamed of returning to the family’s tradition of raising grapes and making champagne. In 1982, after searching the globe for the perfect place to farm flavorful sparkling wine, they chose Westport, MA. Their bold vision and daring tactic was proven to be revolutionary.
Several years later, the vines arrived and oldest son Rob came aboard to plant and manage the vineyard. Rob and his crew planted the first vines in 1986. Since then, our vineyard has grown to 80 acres, the largest vineyard in New England.
Hugo and Luis Quezada joined Rob in the vineyard during the 90’s. The winery opened to the public during the summer of 1991 and has earned over 20 gold medals and endless praise from wine critics worldwide.
