Westport Rivers is a family owned vineyard and winery producing estate grown wines from New England's largest vineyard. Our wines include traditional method sparkling wine, Chardonnay, rose of Pinot Noir, riesling and other Alsatian varietals. We are best known for sparkling wines which rival any from around the globe. in addition, we make a variety of crisp, aromatic table wines; in particular, our Chardonnay is stylish with wonderful acidity and lots of fruit. Westport Rivers began in 1982 when Bob & Carol Russell bought an old dairy farm in Westport, Massachusetts. Several years later, the vines arrived as did their oldest son, Rob. Rob and his crew planted the first vines in 1986 and our vineyard has grown into the largest vineyard in New England (and it is all vinifera). Bill Russell, Bob & Carol's second son, joined the team in 1989 to begin making wine. the winery opened to the public during the summer of 1991.
