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.

I've been to wineries all over the world and this one was a little different. It was definitely geared to handle mobs of people and lots of tables inside and out to accommodate. Pros- beautiful view and lovely setting, they allow you to bring any food you want but no beverages of any kind including water. Lots of tables to... More

We were allowed to bring our own lunch . Drinks must be purchased at the wine bar. Picnic tables are out on the lawn and long tables are available indoors. (go early for indoor seating) The view is just beautiful almost like being in France.

Pack a dinner and head to this winery for a meal and a bottle of wine! Wine is priced between $20-24/ bottle. The winery sits on a hill overlooking Wallingford and the sunset is fantastic. Staff is friendly. They close either at 8 or 9 pm depending on the day.

My friends and I love coming to Gouveia Winery! The views are stunning and the wine is delish! My favorite time to go is in the fall when the leaves are changing. It's spectacular!

On a glorious summer Thursday, we brought out-of-town friends here for a picnic lunch so they could enjoy the panoramic views and some Connecticut wines. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive as we enjoyed the wine tasting before our picnic. We chose a table outside but there are lots of table inside as well. Tasting was $10pp for 4...

Actually, this venue is less than 1 mile from my house. This is a great place to bring a picnic dinner, order a couple of bottles of wine, and bask in the sunset. The wine is priced not by its quality, but by the overall experience. I keep going back. You should too.
