Hawk Ridge Winery, part of Hidden Breeze Farm, is located in Watertown, Connecticut, a peaceful farm setting, in which to enjoy friends, family, and fantastic wine. Hidden Breeze Farm has been in existence since January, 2012. We decided to name our winery after the abundance of red tail hawks on the property.

The 58 acres that surround Hawk Ridge Winery were purchased by Hidden Breeze Farm LLC in 2012. For decades the property was a working farm. In 1975, the property began operating primarily as a horse farm, haying its pastoral acreage. In 2013, after a year of deliberation and appreciation of the property, we decided to convert the property back to a working farm with the introduction of farm animals.

Thirty acres of hay are harvested by the farm annually. In 2014, the decision was made to diversify our crops by planting grapevines with the assistance of many volunteers and college students who worked tirelessly to get the vines into the ground. In 2015, additional grape vines were planted by these same volunteers. There are currently 4 acres of grapevines planted on the farm. Five beehives were added to the property in 2014, and squash and garlic grown in 2015. Future project plans include expansion of the vineyard to 30 acres of vines, expansion of honey production, and other farm related products. Hops are also projected to be cultivated.
