Taylor Brook is by far one of my FAVORITE Wineries here in CT. I purchased 6 bottles of wine this year. Barry is our favorite employee who does the BEST wine tastings. Each year we hope he is the person who is free to do our tasting. Barry LOVES people and enjoys explaining the wine process, flavor and the bottle... More

Ok the location is not as "sexy" as those nearby or those in California Wine Country but perched high above the main road the staff were excellent! The owner came over and greeted us (party of 3) and we told him we wanted to try a few types then buy a few and enjoy them outside. He helped us and... More

We came here on a beautiful fall day to try some Connecticut wines and were very impressed. We opted for the $5 (each) tasting which included most of the wines on the menu. The staff member helping us was very knowledgable about the wines and how they were made. We settled on purchasing two whites and two reds. The staff... More

This place reminds you that wines are supposed to be fun. No pretentions or annoying wine theater here, just surprisingly good wines served by knowledgeable, engaging people with smiles all around. Tastings offer a decent pour so you can really sense what you’ve been offered and prices are very reasonable: $5 for 8 wines or just $8 for all 12... More

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
