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

Wife and I decided to visit some of CT farm wineries, and I chose Haight-Brown as our starting point. Was there on a Friday (highly recommended) so not too crowded. Our server was knowledgable about our wines being tasted, and I liked the info on what cheese to serve with each. Servings were good size, and we were able to... More

We went for a tasting off a groupon but didn't realize it didn't include weekends. They honored the face value. Which was nice of them. Very good wines tasting. They have outdoor seating in the vineyard to enjoy a bottle with food you brought.

We went there for a tasting and stayed over 2 hrs. The owner is straightforward and sarcastic in a good way! She really knows her wine though. We really enjoyed our time at the tasting bar with her!

Got there before 1pm which was great because it got crowded. The wine tasting bar was really nicely set up and our presentation was fun and relaxed, maybe we lucked out as it was the owners son who did the presentation. We loved the white wines much more than the reds but that may just be a matter of taste.... More

We were staying in the area and had a Groupon to use at this vineyard. We have been to several in CT and this one, to me, has the best wine. The service on the other hand was not the best I have ever had, though it was not terrible. Whenever I feel like a burden to my server I... More

Was one of our favorites last year. Had an expired groupon that I wanted to apply to buy a bottle but was told no! Never had a problem before. Got a tasting and didn't want to buy anything! I see they are for sale, wondering if that's why. We are taking them off our favorites list, that's for sure. Cheese... More
