Walker Road Vineyards is a small, family-owned farm winery located in beautiful, historic Woodbury. Owner and Winemaker Jim Frey said, “We are grateful for the work done by the Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition to preserve a good water table, and I mention it often to regular customers. I’m not an expert on water, but I know what it means to us.”
