AAA 10-Diamond Winvian in
Connecticut’s Litchfield Hills Issues Declaration of Independence Against Genetically Modified
Foods in Kitchen
LITCHFIELD HILLS, CT, May
2013 - A prestigious resort in Connecticut’s Litchfield
Hills has issued a declaration of independence from man-created, intrusive
substances in the food coming from its gourmet kitchen.
This is yet another
step to elevate the Winvian experience, a New England stunner that bears the
standards of a AAA 5-diamond restaurant along with another five Diamonds for
“Chef Chris Eddy’s
extreme dedication to using pesticide-free, non genetically modified (GMO)
foods and only the freshest farm-to-table, organic produce further enhances
Winvian’s commitment to our discerning guests,” said Maggie Smith, proprietor.
The resort’s multi-point
declaration draws attention to its two-acre gardens where vegetables, herbs and
other edibles are grown without herbicides, fungicides and pesticides. “We are big
supporters of Connecticut New England Organic Farming Association (CTNOFA) and
integrate many time-honored traditional gardening techniques to assure the
highest level of purity add flavor in our own gardens,” said Eddy. “We are positive and fervent
food activists who strive daily to preserve the integrity of our local food
system purchasing only from farmers who do their best to comply with our
standards of pure, natural and GMO free food.
Because the kitchen relies on seasonal and
insofar as possible regional produce, the garden dictates what will be on a
nightly menu. In May, for example, “We are harvesting ramps
that we have foraged and using them heavily on the menu in celebration of such
a glorious and truly organic spring arrival, harvested in our own woods,” Eddy
said. “We encourage our guests to embrace bio diversity and to experience new
flavors, which we in the kitchen deem well worth trying.”
The extensive wine cellar has a selection of
over 50 organic and or biodynamic wines. This summer flowers grown organically
on the property will grace guest cottages, while honey bees forage outside in
Chef Eddy’s apiary.
Winvian, just two
hours from Manhattan,
offers 18 luxe cottages and one suite on 113 acres of meadows and
woodlands. Nightly rates at Winvian
