We only went to Bishop's Orchards to try out the wine tasting this past weekend. We had no idea what to really expect since we read about the grocery store being there as well. The place was actually really neat. My review is only on the wine, not on the rest of the place (although the sections we walked through looked really neat and seemed to carry some interesting stuff) It's not your typical wine tasting. There's no place to sit down and enjoy a view. It's inside the grocery store in the back. They carry a bunch of local CT wines that you can buy, including the MANY choices they offer. The wine tasting was a bargain at $6 for 6 wines. What was neat about this wine tasting is that each of the six categories offered a couple choices for the taster to choose. The place was very busy when we got there, but they still explained the wines and what they liked about each one. They were knowledgeable about the wine and very friendly. All the wines are made from fruit grown there - none are made from grapes. Check out their website for a full listing of what they offer. It would have been nice for a place to sit and enjoy a bottle of wine like other vineyards, but we loved the wine they sold there.

Bishops orchard is one of my favorite places to stop at during the fall. They have an excellent variety of produce, dairy, meat, bakery, and pre-made foods. They also have their own wine made from apples, pears, etc that are grown on premise. They also have pick your own fruit, a petting zoo for the kiddies, and fresh kettle corn popped outside all fall long. Nice place to stop!

More expensive, but quality products. They move alot of product so you don't have to worry about their produce being old or about to go bad. Love the environment, nice people. Summer and fall is our favorite time to visit during the apple picking or getting a pumpkin but be prepared for crowds at those times of the year.

We picked some truly wonderful apples at Bishop's Orchards. The orchards are beautiful and very spacious - we never felt crowded and lines to pay weren't bad at all. Bags were included and we paid $1.29/lb - fairly reasonable. Now to figure out what to do with all these apples!!
