Carolyn's Sakonnet Vineyard, in Little Compton, was founded in 1975 on the well-researched premise that the microclimate and soil conditions found along the Southeastern New England coast closely resemble some of the great wine regions of the world, particularly the maritime climates of northern France. At present, 50 acres are planted, with many vinifera varietals, including chardonnay, gewurztraminer, pinot noir, and cabernet franc, as well as vidal blanc, one of the French-American hybrids. Wine production has climbed to over 30,000 cases annually, with many wines receiving awards in domestic and international competitions.
