Every vineyard has a tale to tell along the scenic (and delicious) Connecticut Wine Trail
There’s a story behind each of the 25 wineries along the Connecticut Wine Trail. Learn about the history of the vineyards, sample not only the great variety of wines and ciders to be found in this fast-growing wine region but also some of the fruits and other crops grown on their farms. Sip award-winning reds and whites in tasting rooms fashioned from repurposed dairy barns, an 1800s German bank barn – even a World War II-vintage hangar. Talk to owners about the wine-making process, take self-guided tours or just sit at a table on a deck or patio or under a tent overlooking the vineyards, listen to some live music and wait for that spectacular sunset.
