My husband and I just arrive in Sherman for 4 months and booked the Pizza Sunday event to White Silo after reading all the glowing reviews on trip advisor. The bar was set high but the entire experience exceeded all our expectations! It helped that it was a gloriously sunny spring day but couple that with an incredible setting, fabulous pizza, great rhubarb wine and Dan Sawyer on the guitar and you have an 11! He brought me to tears of JOY! We could not have asked for a better way to spend the afternoon. We will definitely return over and over!

A beautiful fall day in Connecticut and no idea where to spend it. A friend suggests White Silo Farm & Winery. We call and they have wine, food, and allow dogs outside. Win, win, and win. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable with helping us decide on which wines to taste and what to order for snacks. We enjoyed the outdoor seating in the sunshine with our dogs amid the beautiful scenery and with some wine and treats.

White Silo is a quaint little farm/vineyard tucked away in Sherman, we drove from the New Haven area so it took about an hour. We, too, had the voucher from Travelzoo for a tasting, tour, lunch, glass of wine, free bottle and pick your own/seasonal jams. It really was a tremendous value as over 60% off. The tour was nice and very informative but short since the farm is probably 5 or 6 acres. The wines were all very sweet as they are fruit wines. The one I preferred the most was actually their rhubarb wine or maybe the sangria. I was less than excited to bring home a bottle, but it was included in the fare. I would easily say the boxed lunch provided was the best part, it was absolutely delicious! Here is the breakdown of the ratings:
- Farm --> ***
- Tour --> ****
- Character --> *****
- Wine --> **
- Lunch --> *****
- Staff --> ***

While we had an enjoyable afternoon at the White Silo, I feel terribly misled by the Groupon "deal" that lured us in, so this review is less Winery than whine.
The "deal" was $49 for 2 - a "$109 value".
It included 2 box lunches, 2 tastings, 2 complimentary glasses, 2 glasses of sparkling wine and chocolates, a tour and a farmer's market gift. A $109 value.
Well, if one happens to stop in at the winery and pay "retail", the tastings are $7 and include a complimentary glass. The box lunches are $20. The tour is free to anyone who wants to take it, a total of $27 retail, leaving the sparkling wine and chocolates and the farmer's market gift not accounted for. If my math is right, that's $54 for two - so the gift (which we didn't get) and the glass of Raspberry Sparkling white and the accompanying 6 pieces of chocolates per person apparently retail for $55 for 2. How else to explain the Groupon "deal" of $49 for $109?
It was a nice afternoon nonetheless - just don't be fooled by Groupon's come on.

When we arrived we checked in and was handed a piece of paper explaining the wine tasting. We asked if they had a wine list and Lisa pointed its right there on the counter.
We started with the raspberry spritz, while we were at the bar another group walked in and Lisa introduced herself and the other two girls at the bar, we were taken back because she definitely didn’t do that to us. But that was okay, we decided to sit instead of standing around the bar. However, every time we walked to the bar to try another wine, Ms.Lisa would just ignore us and we had to wait patiently even though we were there before others. Thank God for Jessica she stepped in a few times and took care of us. We decided to wait until after the tour to have our lunch and finish our wine tasting. We asked Jessica if we can leave our wine glasses and our chocolates on the table and she said no problem. After our wine tour which we really enjoyed and the young lady giving us the tour was phenomenal. We returned back inside and our wine glasses and chocolates were gone. We went to the bar and Lisa asked oh well where are your glasses and we said we left them on the table, oh well you shouldn’t have done that”, we told her Jessica said it was fine, “well I don’t agree with that”. To say the least she was rude and really treated us like second class citizens, I hate to think that she treated us like this because two of us were of color. Unfortunately I do feel like that because another couple walked in and were treated exactly like us but they left after the tour and didn’t bother doing the wine tasting or getting their lunch, and they were of colored. I refuse to allow anyone make me feel less than a person so we stayed and enjoyed each other’s company. I decided to look at the art work on the walls and I really liked the ones made with resin and she came charging at me, what are you doing and I told her I was curious to see what the painting was painted on, so she took it off the wall and asked me are you going to buy this and I replied No, I was just looking at it. She seemed annoyed and hung it back up and stated well now it’s not straight and I reply it’s an abstract round painting so it doesn’t matter. Well she proceeded to go to the next painting and stated well that one is not straight and told my husband who was sitting to move, not excuse me or pardon me but MOVE, this was unacceptable. We have never been treated so nasty and rude, never!!!

I bought the travelzoo package for $49 per couple. This included box lunches ( great stuff, considering I am more "Meat and Potatoes", two glasses of wine ( we like the semi sweet rhubarb ), chocolates, and farm and winery tours. We took the backroads from NY state ( mistake ) so take the highway route instead. Nice Sunday, good for 3 hours. Other than the rhubarb wine, the rest of the wines were just okay. Tour could have been better ( if I heard " ya know" one more time ). Would go back next year.

We went there on a Groupon for $49 for two. ( it's funny, that there was no discount thru Groupon, as I could have made the reservation my self for $49). To get to the point: the lunch provided was horrible. A quarter sub of dried turkey, some cranberries, with some awful cheese, and , to put the cherry on the cake, nothing to drink with this so called lunch. We had to buy water! After lunch, we had a tasting of only 4 wines! How cheap can you get! Won't be back, and am questioning Groupon about their non discount.

White Silo Winery was a wonderful surprise in Litchfield county. The tasting room was busy with wine enthusiasts on a sunny October Sunday. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of great indoor seating on the bottom floor of the barn. Plenty of tables outside to sip wine while overlooking the vineyard. The Upland Pastures White dry Cayuga wine was one of the very best whites we’ve had in Connecticut. That’s if you like dry, clean, crispy and earthy wines.

Only downside to the experience was the gnats hanging over our table outside.

I recommend going to the winery to buy a few bottles of fruity (not fine) wine. However, I cannot recommend the full-tour experience ($99) we bought and (almost) had. It started with no one to welcome you or explain how the tastings or the experience worked. Everyone who appeared to work at the winery was super busy with tastings. Once we waited our turn to ask how we could get started (we had a reservation), the person snapped at us and asked us to wait longer to check in. We received a wrong lunch coupon. We had to wait in line at the tasting bar again to request our box lunches. The person “forgot” who we were and almost didn’t honor the lunch coupons she’d given us. The box lunch was a slice of thin turkey on a stale bun and a “mini” cheese platter that was a slice of cheese (good, though) sprinkled with a few Craisins. The quinoa salad was dry and inedible. The dessert bar in the box was good. The wines are all quite sweet or sour – not fine wine. We skipped the vineyard tour we’d paid for to attempt to salvage our day. If you’ve never done a wine tasting, never seen a winery and love fruity wines, I’d recommend buying a tasting (no lunch). But if you’ve toured great wineries, had sommelier lessons and have at least a mid-level appreciation for wines, skip it.

I will start with the good then go with the bad. The wines are going to be different than a lot of the wineries in the area. They have rhubarb wines and some other fruit wines which I thought were all well done, especially the Cassis. The wines range from dry to sweet, with the Cassis being borderline simple syrup level of sweet which I personally loved. The scenery here is nice and there is a lot of room to sit outside.

Now the bad. This location cannot handle a crowd. We came here at 4:30 on a Saturday and it took us 20 minutes to get started on a wine tasting. We were acknowledged right away and said we were here for a wine tasting. They then proceeded to start multiple other wine tastings over us and check out other customers. It wasn't until I asked my wife if she wanted to leave that we were finally started on a tasting. Even then, the women doing the tasting said nothing about the wines and just poured when she saw we were empty. We were not terribly thrilled with this.

I think if you are in the area it is worth dropping in during off peak hours as the flavors are quite different from the norm. However, it isn't something worth a longer trip unless you are doing multiple wineries in the area.
