Eat, drink and be grateful for it all
Grape growing and wine making started in earnest in Connecticut in the 1800s. More recently, and now in one of the most scenic and fastest growing wine regions in the country, producers run complementary enterprises to increase farm revenues and provide an additional incentive for visitors to stop by. More travelers today are looking for an authentic down on the farm experience that Connecticut’s Wine Trail offers in abundance – along with an almost unlimited range of fine wines. You can tour the area’s wineries and explore historic barns, buildings, homes, churches and shops. Born in microclimates, you can taste and savor the distinct differences in each varietal. Along the way, you’ll meet dedicated farmers, passionate winemakers, and the beautiful places kept that way by people who care.
