I was surprised to learn they buy grapes, as their is no vineyard to speak of. A small planting in the rear is for show. They offer music in the tasting room and behind the covered. You can purchase a bottle of wine and enjoy it there. If you want, there is no objection to bringing your own snacks to... More

I like the atmosphere of the winery, but the cheese plate that came with the groupon was a joke. Literally five pieces of cheese (small pieces) and a handful of crackers- that was supposed to be a $15 value? Really? The tasting is priced higher than average at $9 for 5 wines.

A newer vineyard...none of their vines are yielding yet so they buy grapes "locally"...they are located roadside right on Route 66. The rustic building has a store where you can find almost anything wine related you can think of. The tasting room is in the back. There's also a patio outback for enjoying a bottle after a tasting and a... More

We stopped here for the first time and were not disappointed. They have a wide range of wines, suitable for all tastes (sweet or dry), and let you pick which ones you want for tasting. They are maybe a little more expensive than some for the tasting, but they do have a large variety to choose from, as well as... More

I love this vineyard. Although it does not have the view that some other CT vineyards can boast, the wine is ,better than many and the gift shop is awesome. Lots of cute items for the house including a wide selection of Yankee Candles. Minimal food is available for purchase, but you are welcome to bring a picnic and sit... More

Arrigoni used to be one of my favorite stops on the CT wine trail- the staff is great and the wine is good. Sadly we met the owner this past weekend and his lack of customer service and people skills and his rude and condescending behavior prompted me to leave this negative review. Thankfully there are plenty of wineries on... More

I was there with a group of about 15 people and never have felt so disrespected. So apparently our food was taking up too much space in their gazebo. We would have moved more willingly had the owner used a more respectful attitude when asking. Well the harassment did not end there. He then began bad mouthing us to the... More

My 2 step daughters and their mom went with me on Sunday to the Arrigoni Winery in Portland for a wine tasting. I had been there before and really enjoyed it. Although the 3 of them live in Portland none had been there. It was a very busy day as they were celebrating their 2nd year anniversary of being open.... More

Visited Arrigoni Winery when they first opened and had a nice experience. Wine was immature but people were friendly and tasting was fun. Pretty area and nice outdoor seating. Visited recently 2 years later, more wines but could not find one that was worth buying. Wines lack complexity and why they have mor varieties the quality is among the worse... More
