Il Cantina Sociale di La Familglia is Our Society of Wine Producers & you are now a member of the family. Throughout your days of wine-making with us you will learn from second, third & fourth generation Italian-Americans the joys and traditions of wine making. From crushing and pressing to racking and bottling, you will be involved in each step resulting in your own barrel of Vino della Casa labeled, of course, with your name. During your time with us, in addition to working with the grapes, we invite you to experience the Italian way, as we know it. We will share with you our new family, the great meals, the lore, the tradition and the story telling that has made for such camaraderie and resulted in so many special times. You'll probably even pick up a few of our favorite phrases and gestures along the way. We invite you to stroll the gardens, play a game of bocce or horseshoes, or lend a hand in the kitchen preparing for the evening's feast! « less

Two major things make this winery stand out from any I've been to in Connecticut. First, the owners, in particular, and also their staff, are welcoming in such a genuine way that by the time you leave you feel like family. Second, the wines (and particularly the Old Vine Zinfandel and the Cabernet Sauvignon for me) are without question the... More

Spent a beautiful weekend day here and could not have had a better time. Greeted by multiple people before even sitting down, we immediately felt welcome and at home. Definitely plan on going back

Went here for the first time yesterday and it is by far the best experience I've ever had at winery in the CT area (or anywhere!). The wine was excellent and the staff was super friendly and helpful. Oh and the live music by Dee was fantastic. I can't think of a better way to spend a weekend afternoon. Definitely... More

Tasia made our visit relaxing and fun. Sipping a sample of wines by the pond and enjoying live music made for a relaxing afternoon. We'll be back!

What a great family owned and operated winery. My partner and I have considered having our wedding here. Best family run winery. Do the tasting on a lovely afternoon. Well worth the trip out there.

I visited here for the first time last weekend and had an excellent experience. The winery is very casual and not very large. The retail building itself is more like a shed. The setting is somewhat rustic and very country. There are port a potties and the furniture is mismatched however the mismatched furniture is party of the charm. There... More

This is my favorite vineyard in Connecticut! A small tasting room doesn't detract from this vineyard because you can have your tasting outside overlooking the pond. That's right, the servers will bring each selection to you! Amazing service. And some of the best wines in the state. Don't miss this gem.

Been to this place a few times! I would definitely reccomend it. To be able to sit by the peaceful pond, sip on their delicious wines while listening to soothing music in the background is an excellent way to spend any afternoon!:)

My husband and I discovered Dalice Elizabeth last year and we've been back a few times. Each time is a true delight. The people who work here are VERY friendly, not at all snooty like they can be at some other wineries, i.e. Napa valley wineries. The setting is tranquil, situated next to a small pond with outdoor seating. The... More
