Gouveia's Vineyard is located on a hillside overlooking acres of vineyards and lots of seating both inside or outside on the patios. A great place for a couple or for a small get-together. Beautiful in both winter or summer, with lovely sunsets.

Great place to meet friends and drink some wine! Can be a little crowded on the weekend but on a nice day there's plenty of room inside and out.

I went for a weekend in Ct with friends and we were looking for attractions in the area. Part of the Connecticut Wine Trail, the Vineyard offers a tour which in the cold is really just a walk to the basement to look at the barrels and here the very charming owner discuss how he got into making wine and...

Perfect place for enjoying late Spring to early Fall enjoying the scenery while sitting outside. During colder weather sit inside the vineyard lodge. No food served by vineyard by local ordinance, but bring your own and enjoy the atmosphere with friends. Outside is very serene. Inside is noisy because of the hard surfaces (hardwood floors, ceilings and lots of glass),... More

We came to Gouveia's for a wine tasting and a tour. Because of the weather the tour took place in the basement of the winery. The owner gave the 'tour' and gave lots of information on each of his wines and grapes, etc. Very interesting. The downside to this experience was the location of the wine tasting. The wine itself...

Gouveia has a nice selection of wine. The wine tastings are fun and each time you go there may be different wines to taste. It is fun to bring food and sit with a glass of wine. Beautiful scenery too!
