After graduating from UMASS Amherst in 1993 with a degree in speech pathology, Jon quickly changed course and moved to Napa Valley CA. Working for 3 years at Vincent Arroyo winery in Calistoga, Edwards was a quick study and learned the ins and outs of the wine business. In 2001 the Edwards family purchased the 40-acre lot in North Stonington CT. Under Jonathan’s watchful eye, Jonathan Edwards Winery farms 20 acres of Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Cabernet Franc. In addition the winery produces Napa Grown wines in this state of the art New England Winery.
