Choate Rosemary Hall
From its shared roots over a century ago as The Choate School and Rosemary Hall, through the merger in 1974, to the Choate Rosemary Hall of today, the name represents the best in American secondary education.
Built on an alfalfa field in 1954 by original founder Ben Segal, the original Oakdale was part of the "theatre-in-the-round" craze that saw many circular stages open in various parts of the Northeast. A family owned business for decades, it began primarily as a summer stock venue, hosting many of the musicals of the day.

Some Interesting Notes...
About Our Wines
Our vineyard has a 4 acre test plot for the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station.
We're helping to research different ways of growing grapes to see what methods are best for future CT growers.
Each vine row is planted at different spacings and pruned in different ways. At harvest time, the grape clusters are counted, weighed and documented and CAES will be able to know what methods work best for CT soils and climate for years to come.
Visit our Wines Page to learn more about our varietals, and their tasting notes.
