The Passport to Connecticut Farm Wineries is a popular program where par-ticipants receive a stamp at each winery they visit. Participants that collect a cer-tain number of stamps from participating Connecticut Farm Wineries are eligible for more than 60 prizes, including a two- week trip for two to Spain.
The Passport season runs from the first Friday in May through the first Sunday in November each year. It’s
a program of the Connecticut Farm Wine Development Council and the Connecticut Department of Agriculture. Wine Passport participants must be 21 years or older.
Dr. Michael O’Neill, Associate Dean and Associate Director of UConn Extension facilitated a process with the UConn Department of Computer Science capstone projects to create a mobile app for the Passport. The Passport app will be available in the spring of 2019, and there will be special prizes for those using the app in its inaugural year. Paper passports are also available for those preferring the traditional model. Follow @CTFarmWineries on Facebook for more information, or visit PassportToCTFarmWine.com.
