Surprise.

Rhode Island is big on wine - grown from grapes suited to the soil and climatic conditions existing along the rugged Rhode Island coast.

The Vidal and Seyval grape varieties in particular have adapted well to the long growing season and the intermittent fog that are part of Rhode Island summers.

Officially, Rhode Island falls under the Southeastern New England AVA (American Viticultural Area) that is shares with neighboring states Connecticut and Massachusetts. Major wine growing regions include Bristol, Newport, Providence, and Washington county in Rhode Island.

Up until a few years ago, Block Island also had it's own winery, the Block Island Vineyards, now closed..

Just up ahead, learn more about Little Rhodie's wine tours, tastings and award winning wines from the state's four major wineries. Above, the tasting room at the Sakonnet Vineyards in Compton, Rhode Island.
