Clinton, Ct (PRWEB) June 16, 2013
Chamard Vineyards addition of its Farm Winery Bistro last fall completes the Chamard Experience with the opportunity to pair Simple, Wholesome, Classic Food with the French inspired wines made on the farm. Sourcing ingredients locally is key to Chamard's mission of supporting Connecticut agriculture by celebrating local gastronomy. In the spirit of farming and a dedication to "waste not, want not", furniture and decor in the Farm Winery Bistro are crafted from repurposed wine barrels, reclaimed barnwood, fallen persimmons trees and grape trunks. The views of the vineyard are spectacular and the walls, painted in the grey tones of weathered shingles, have been calling for art. The first exhibit will run July 1 - August 31st.
Chamard Vineyards Farm Winery Bistro Open:
Tuesday thru Sunday 11am - 6pm
Friday & Saturday 11am - 9pm
Reservations for the Bistro are Recomended
