Meet E + J
Welcome to Connecticut Uncorked! We’re Evamarie and Jonathan, a pair of New England wine lovers from documenting our wine adventures one glass, or bottle, at a time. Our love of vino took root in 2009 during our first round on the Connecticut Wine Trail and we haven’t looked back.
Over the years, we’ve developed a deep appreciation for the intoxicating aromas and complex (and not so complex) flavors of wine. So much so that in the Fall of 2015 Jonathan surprised me with an unforgettable trip to San Francisco and Napa Valley. During our 5 day trip (too short!) we visited five wineries and rode in the vista dome of the Napa Valley Wine Train. We even got engaged at the Castello di Amorosa! Oh and we’re getting married in October 2016 at Chamard Vineyards in Connecticut. So yes, we love wine.

Boxed Wine – Yay or Nay: Tried once in college. Wine hangovers are not fun. 😉
Canned Wine: Never tried it!
Have you ever bought a bottle based on its wine label: Sure have! You have to live a little. Have you seen Bodegas Carchelo “C” red blend? That label is pretty awesome.
