The experience here at Haight Brown is wonderful...Upon arriving you see a beautiful German/Bavarian buildling, open the doors and you go up the stairs to the tasting room. Each time I go I do a full wine tasting and I add on the chocolate/cheese pairing. I enjoy taking new people to Haight Brown because they enjoy the tasting with the... More

On a recent drive through the beautiful Connecticut countryside we decided to stop at the Haight-Brown Winery. Even though it was a snowy, cold day, the inside of the winery was quite nice and provided a good atmosphere for tasting. We tasted a total of 10 wines, a nice assortment of both reds and whites, and the gentleman helping us... More

I had the 6 wine tasting. The two wines from CA grapes were pretty good, the wines from estate grapes were not that good. Tasting was okay, but the exact same words were quickly repeated for a given wine to each group at the bar, kind of a memorized script. Layout of the tasting area seemed a bit unusual. Went... More

I have visited a few vineyards in CT and this is one of my favorites. I did the wine and chocolate tasting which was very good. There was a great variety of wines to taste and the guy who assisted us was very knowledgeable and friendly. Nice patio, lots of products for sale. I would recommend this vineyard.

Haight-Brown is one of my favorite CT Wineries. It is relaxing to sit at the bar for a wine tasting. The chocolate and cheese plate adds to the fun of the tasting and an adventure each time trying new cheeses. This winery is such a favorite that I visit more then once a year. There are stairs to get to... More

Great shopping, tons of room to taste, great patio, good views, easy to get to, nice picnic spots. Having said that the staff was not up to par with there competitors. They had a help wanted sign on the door so that is a good sign.

Had a great evening visiting the vineyard with a group of friends for an evening of painting and wine. Funky, fun vineyard with very accomodating employees.

We didn't want to pay to sample wine Why would you pay to sample wine that you might not like (except for a couple) We did buy a single glass of wine each so we could enjoy the view outside Which overlooks the vineyard which was nice, but the dry white wine was tasteless

We stopped here for the tasting and ended up doing the full flight, which is 10 wines for $12 and you keep the glass. Your other option is 6 wines for $9. We figured they had enough uniqueness and variety to try them all. They have drys and semi-drys and a nice mix of reds and whites, as well as... More

When I go to a vineyard, the experience hinges on not only the wine, but the server, the conversation, the ambiance. The woman who poured our wine did just that, and nothing else. She didn't greet us, barely looked at us, went through the descriptions on auto pilot. We were not even there half hour she rushed us through so... More
