Words from a past Priam groom, “the most memorable thing is the view from the top of the hill. You can see half the state; it’s so peaceful and beautiful. It’s truly a unique space that can be transformed to whatever you want. The vineyard layout is really special as well. Rolling hills that wrap around the estate and the tented event space feels like the summit of a mountain.”
Gloria Priam began planting her vineyard back in 1998 with dreams of being a grower for CT Vineyards after a long career in NYC. All of that changed once she realized the quality of product being produced from her land and Priam Vineyards was born. After dedicating every available hour to procuring federal and state liquor licensing, the winery officially opened its doors in 2003. Today, she and co-owner, Jim Meilo continue to direct the growth of the winery business, weddings, events, and wine sales.
Located in Colchester, CT, Priam Vineyards is just 25 minutes from Hartford, Norwich, or Mohegan Sun. Looking to split your time between the quiet country and the bustling historic shoreline? Head to Mystic, just 45 minutes away where friends and family can enjoy more of the Connecticut Wine Trail, craft breweries, James Beard award winning restaurants and activities for the entire family.
