If you ask me, wineries are like the Disneyland of adulthood. On a nice warm day you can walk along the rows, sip wine, and chat with friends or loved ones. Or if wine is a solo adventure for you, just sit back and read a book. However you enjoy your trip, do it at one of these gorgeous Connecticut locations.
1. Chamard Vineyards (Clinton)
This place is a collection of land tucked at the end of a winding road.
Enjoy the wine or stop by the bistro for a full meal.

Catch a peak of the barrels on your walkthrough for a secret look into wine making and enjoy the view.
You'll love the laid-back atmosphere around the picnic tables.
3. DiGrazia Vineyard (Brookfield)
Enjoy drinks outside without risking the burn.
This place has a nice size selection and excellent service.
4. Gouveia Vineyards (Wallingford)
These are some of the best views around, and you're welcome to set up lawn chairs.
You can also bring your own food stuffs to make the trip uniquely you.
5. Hopkins Vineyard (New Preston)
Check out the upstairs for a nice relaxed tasting or take your glass outside.
The favorite here is the white, so definitely check it out!
