What could be more romantic than visiting a gorgeous vineyard, sipping wine from a patio in the summer or by a cozy fire in winter? Why, visiting more than one vineyard, of course! Almost two dozen wineries and vineyards are part of the Connecticut Wine Trail, which meanders through some of the state’s most breathtaking places. Enjoy a wine tasting at a winery overlooking the hills, or near the coast. Sip a selection of wines in a tasting room created from a restored barn, with original beams. Take a picnic lunch out onto an expansive lawn and just relax in each other’s company. Some wineries have live music, trivia and comedy nights and classes to show you how to pair wines with chocolate. (Now that is truly romantic!)

Take a tour of some of the great vineyards on the CT Winter Wine Trail.

Seaside inn earns its reputation as one of the best for romance-seekers

When ILoveInns.com voted the Inn at Harbor Hill Marina one of the “Top 10 Most Romantic Inns,” they could have been persuaded by so many things. Maybe it’s the view of boats in the marina from private balconies in luxurious guest rooms. Or the fireplaces. Or the whirlpool and soaking tubs. Maybe it’s enjoying sea breezes and quiet conversation on the inn’s wraparound porch or walking through gorgeous flower gardens. Perhaps it’s the idea of that stroll down to Niantic village for coffee or dinner, or walking together to the mile-long Boardwalk or nearby beaches. Or it could just be the delightful breakfast, impeccable service and warm, welcoming hospitality that has made the inn a romantic favorite for travel sites for years.
