Chamard Vineyard in Clinton, CT

 Tucked away in Clinton, Connecticut, is a French Bistro which happens to in the center of  vineyards … Chamard Vineyards.

    My good friend, Kelly and I sipped the crisp, dry Estate Rose 2015. It was the perfect complement to our homemade Pommes Frites with rosemary salt and roasted garlic dipping sauce. I ordered the Croque Madame: Grilled Black Forest ham and swiss with a fried farm egg and mornay sauce on sourdough. Kelly dined on the Grilled Cheese: Gruyere & Gouda on whole grain bread. Each with a perfectly dressed, green salad. Tres Bon!

   The Bistro is open all year!
