I had an end of the year outing at the vineyard and very impressed. We did the wine, cheese and chocolate tasting in the private room AND the vineyard prepared lunch for us. I was unaware that was an option and thought we had to bring our own food- but the lunch provided was great and due to OUR mis... More

A friend and I did a tasting with wine and chocolate pairings, and it was thoroughly enjoyable. We considered adding the cheese, but we were going to dinner afterward so thought it would be too much.The wines were varied and we liked all of them quite a bit, and the chocolate selections were well chosen. The service got rather slow... More

Haight-Brown hosted my sister's bridal shower (June 2015) and it was fabulous! We had a private wine pairing class. Not only was the wine delicious with the cheese & chocolate, but the attention that the owners gave us throughout the entire event (before, during, and even after) exceeded my expecations. I highly recommend this place for not only visits, but... More

Probably some of the best pairings of drink and food (we did pairings with chocolate and cheese) we've ever had. And the wines were decent, particularly for CT and for the price. But we were there almost 75 minutes as the person doing the tasting was too busy doing office work and other things than to care that we were... More

Thank you for your review. You are absolutely right that on that Friday there was a pressing issue outside of serving customers at the bar and interfering with customer service levels. I could not agree more. The bar was staffed with just one person and it was distracting. I am glad you enjoyed the wine and pairings. I think we... More

I've now visited Haight Brown multiple times. I have done many tastings and have enjoyed the wine and cheese/chocolate each time. Visiting Haight Brown is great all year round, as they have a few nice, cozy areas to sit upstairs and picnic tables outside. My husband and I went with a few friends last weekend and sat outside. We brought... More

Visited on a slow afternoon. The lady behind the counter was super nice, but she was on her phone a lot between pours (there was a group and a couple also at the bar). She left about 30 minutes after I got there to pick up her son from the bus stop. She wasn't even gone five minutes so it... More

Thanks for the feedback. I am the owner and person who ran to bus stop. I am also a mom of four. Unfortunately my husband flies a lot for his job and his flight was delayed. The bus stop is 1.1 miles from Vineyard and I needed to take a judgement call - leave a 10 and 12 year old... More

Haight-Brown Vineyard in Litchfield Ct is my new favorite winery. It is simply wonderful. Although I am not a new patron, I have been going there throughout the years; but I have recently rediscovered all the goodness it has to offer. I was pleased to see that owners Amy and Jacques recently made many renovations and updates to the winery.... More

I had been here a couple years ago and remembered that they had wine, cheese and chocolate tastings. In Connecticut, that's pretty rare. Most places just want to sell you a glass after a tasting, although you'll find some with chocolates here and there. This time around, my girlfriend and I went to the wine, cheese and chocolate class. It's... More
