I hate going to vineyards that are uptight. This place was the opposite. The atmosphere was totally relaxing, the even had comfy chairs by a fireplace. We bought and drank a bottle of red which was good but I think they are known for their white. Nice grounds and the outside patio was super quiet. Would definitely recommend.

Nancy is the best hostess! She is quite knowledgeable about the wines and the vineyard. She is very welcoming and the winery is lovely. The wines are ok, nothing noteworthy, reasonably priced. The vineyard had a couple of large events each year. One in May and one in September. There are tours, live music, food trucks and tastings. Fun place!

Recently redone tasting room - music by the fire in the winter and on the lawn in the summer. Definitely worth a stop for a glass of wine and some music. Check their website for specifics.Wines are good, staff friendly.

Harvest fest weekend here in September is great fun with the live music and food trucks, lawn games and activities. A little steep for entry price,$25, which included the admission and 5 small tastings and a glass. Seemed to be several hundred at this event. Bottles of wine are around $20. Grounds are beautiful and could use a bit more... More

You'll never meet friendlier or more knowledgeable staff than at Stonington Vineyards. Wine tastings are $10 and include a complimentary wine glass. The ambience is wonderful and calming. Visitors can sit outside and enjoy a glass or bottle of wine. A gift shop is also on site.

What do you do on a rainy afternoon in Westerly / Stonington area ? Go to a winery. Small well done tasting area. We have been to a half dozen + winerys in CT, all do a better job. A little on the pricy side and very small portions to try. Wine quality was good. Only ok for the price.

We are surprised to hear your comments, as we notoriously offer very fair pricing for our wines and tastings. In addition, we do not pre-measure our pours, so we are surprised as well you found the portions small. We hope that you are... More

My wife and I were about a mile away when we looked up wineries and breweries. They were also opened earliest. My wife said the wines were descent. I had to sit outside because a bachelorette party was there too. My one recommendation to this winery would be to install acoustic panels. Being inside for the tasting would give you... More

Dear Guest, We are saddened to read your review, as online reviews are very important to us, and mediocre or poor reviews affect us greatly. It seems as though your girlfriend enjoyed the wine, and you liked the scenery as well. The weekends, especially holiday weekends (when you visited) get extremely busy, and in turn, it does get very loud.... More

A bit less commercial than the other Stonington vineyards but still busy on weekends, especially in the summers with noisy bridal shower caravans. The wines are nice, especially the whites. The tasting room is very noisy. The staff was not very knowledgeable about their wines. They didn't offer crackers, etc., to cleanse the palate, you have to buy some in... More

I rarely write a poor review. I have visited wineries in about 15 different states and in Europe. I have been to about 10 wineries in CT (near Foxwoods).

When we arrived, it seemed like it was crazy inside. There weren't many people at the bar for a tasting, just one group of 3 people, and we later realized it was right around 2:00 when they do their tour of the winery. It started off crazy, but Kylie kept it together despite probably wanting to rip her hair our,... More
