Dan, Thank you very much for your thoughtful review, it means a lot to my wife and myself. I think it also helps other people that want to see Connecticut and find what a small farm winery has to offer. Thank you Jim Frey

Love the antique barn with the antiques inside. There were chairs outside so people can sit looking over the grape vines. Purchased a bottle of each wine

Thank you for your very nice feedback. Yes the barn can get warm. It is very old and has lots of cubes. The design is called an "English Barn" which means that the center bay is designed as the threshing floor. So that by opening...More

We stopped by on a Saturday afternoon. Our visit was great! The owners were serving and could not have been more lovely! We especially enjoyed the Walker white table wine. Definitely worth the trip.

This winery is perhaps the smallest on the wine trail and is our most favorite. The owner will educate one on the art of blending grapes and has the products that demonstrate his skills. Not the easiest place to find but well worth the effort.

Love the old barn and the artwork. Nice to have a little tour of them, sharing what each one is. The wine was enjoyable, one red and one white.
