We stopped for a wine tasting, and were not disappointed. Their prices for tastings for this area seem to be very reasonable. We went with the full sweep of tasting for $12. We are fans of dry wines, and they had some that fit into that category, but also a variety of others that tended towards the sweeter side. But... More

We never get tired of hearing from people who have really had a good time and enjoy our wines when they visit. We do try to keep our tasting fee reasonable and don't add the cost of a logo glass to the price, but leave it up to you if you want one. The full menu of 13 wines is... More

This is one of my top 5 wineries in CT. Their wines are great across the board, and I especially love their wines with fruit essence. Green apple reisling! My fave! Barry gives fabulous tastings, but I've also had a few other staff members give me a tasting as well. Everyone is always very sweet, and of course everyone loves... More

This was my second visit to this winery. They have expanded their wines and their tasting room since the last time I was here. The staff was very nice and helpful with the tasting. I definitely had my favorites and the one I wanted to get again was their Chocolate Essence. A wonderful port style wine. The Raspberry Rendezvous was... More

I am so glad that you visited us again and had a nice experience. As you know, every palate is different, and although we do our best ot create a diverse wine porfolio, we understand that not all people will like all of our wines. Our Traminette, in particular (Riesling is also known for this quality), although not as strong)... More

We hit this winery just before closing, so it is hard to say much about the scenery (it was dark when we got there). However, who cares about the scenery when there are such great wines! I can't say enough about what a fantastic value this tasting was . I tried all 14 wines for $7!!! That is unbelievable!! This... More

Friendly winery. Most of the wines were on the sweeter side, which I prefer. They also donate a portion of a select wine bottle to local animal shelter. We bought a case of wine. Thanks!!!

Last year we helped Dick and Linda with the grape harvest and could not wait to be invited again for this year's. We were harvesting the Cayuga grapes which would become the base for many of their white wines. Dick set us up and we were on our way harvesting. While it is great fun and a social occasion for...

Went exploring this area with the in-laws, whose friend recommended we stop by. Barry was very knowledgeable and personable. My favorite was the chocolate port wine -- great with desserts and other sweet treats. Inlaws bought a case of peach wine and green apple wine, as well as the raspberry. The flavors were great but not too sweet. Great stop... More
