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!

That's a terrific combination! Just get here by noon to get a good seat! It's very popular and with good reason. Bring your snacks, or a whole meal (a party of about 50 set up a buffet line!) and enjoy the views and the very refined wines (mostly $20-24/bottle). Six of us finished off five bottles and a couple odd... More

Gouveia's wines are great in any season, but this winery really shines when it's warm enough to site outside and enjoy the beautiful view that surrounds the winery. It is great to be able to bring your own food and have a lovely picnic outside. In the wintertime you can do the same inside, but the tasting room can get... More

I got a $50 gift certificate from my engagement party for this winery. My first time there was a year ago and I'm still eating away at the gift certificate:). The wine, the employees, and the view of the vineyard is beautiful. They are very laid back, this time I walked with a girlfriend and five people were bringing in... More

Gouveia is a fantastic Fall foliage place to be in CT! When the leaves are in their peak it is awesome to go there, have some apps and some wine and relax in the natural beauty. The drive up to the vineyard always makes me feel like I'm heading to a vineyard in Napa Valley, CALIF.! It is a nice... More

the view and grounds of this place are awesome. nice place to get together with friends and have some food and wine. i don't think the wine is all that great but the atmosphere more than makes up for it.
